A promising tour is waiting for you. Enjoy a wonderful, not too extremely difficult ascent. However, the last part of the path is a little bit strenuous but the view from the summit makes you forget the effort of the ascent.

Turn-by-turn directions

We start the hike at the lift car park in Zöblen and walk past the Restaurant Auszeit and the Augsburger Hütte, almost always through the forest. This way we quickly reach the entrance of the Pontental valley. More and more the path loses its steepness to be completely flat at the end of the valley. After that, it climbs relatively steeply, but the height meters to Zirleseck have to be managed somehow. Only for a short time we enjoy the gorgeous view before we continue to the right. The way up to the summit is beautiful. Downhill we walk on the western side of the Ponten. On the saddle between Ponten and Bscheißer, the Güntle, we turn right. We can already see the Stuiben Sennalpe below us. The path leads us first on an asphalt road, then on a gravel path, down the Stuibental valley to Schattwald. At the first houses we turn right. Past the sports field and shooting range, further through the forest back to Zöblen.
