Of average height and beautiful shape – this description may fit to several mountains in the Stubai Alps. However, with this summit, it is the plainness that surprises. At the Hoher Burgstall many a mountaineer may not expect to discover anything new because the summit is the easiest to hike of all the Seven Summits. However, this mountain full of views at the southwest end of the Kalkkögel mountain range teaches the alpinists to think differently. As a powerful limestone mass of intrusive rock based on primary rock, the Hoher Burgstall convincingly shows diversity of the Stubai mountains, and not only offers exciting views but also a variety of insights.

First impression
On days with good weather and clear views, the peak of Hoher Burgstall opens up a unique 360° panorama from the Karwendel mountain range over the Zillertal Alps and the mountains of the Gschnitztal up to the glaciers around the Zuckerhütl and the Franz-Senn-Hütte.

Great men
Sir Edmund Hillary, first climber of the Mount Everest in the year 1953, marked his first summit in the Alps four years before by conquering the Hoher Burgstall. However, much stronger than this is the connection of Franz Senn to Alpinism in the Stubai. Born 1831 in Längenfeld, he came to Neustift as a priest in 1881 and formed the touristic developments in the valley. He was a dedicated mountaineer and educated youth to be carriers and mountain guides. He produced maps including hiking times by means of his own expenses and introduced guiding fees. His mountain guides had to fix trails, secure paths and mark routes when they were not on the go in the mountains. In 1869, he founded the German Alpine Association together with three companions from Munich. Its purpose was to promote mountaineering as an experience. The only record of the clergyman Franz Senn’s own mountaineering activities in the Stubai valley can be found in the memory of his ascent of the Hoher Burgstall in July 1881. Unfortunately, his dream of an alpine hut at the Alpeiner Ferner was not realized before his death, however later thanks to the Austrian Alpine Association’s section of Innsbruck.


From the public pool Neustift a riser leads right over a small bridge in many switchbacks steadily upwards through the forest to the Starkenburger Hut . Then it's relatively steep climb on the south side to the summit . The climb requires about 4 hours in total.
