Hiking tour Peitlerkofel

Starting point of the tour
Destination point of the tour
From the Zanser Alm, follow the road and markings no. 33, 35 to the Schlüterhütte, on the Kreuzkofeljoch. From here you hike to the Peitlerscharte without losing much altitude. The route to the summit of the Peitlerkofel is made up of steep hairpin bends and, at the end, some easy climbing, made easier by wire ropes and steps carved into the rock. The way back is the same as the way there.
