11. "Top of Tyrol" Summit Platform
View of Hundreds of Summits
The Dresdner Hütte loop trail is located directly in the area of the Stubaier Gletscherbahnen lifts. It leads past small lakes and tarns to the upland plateau of Egesengrat (2,625m), from where one enjoys a fantastic view.
The Top of Tyrol summit platform (3,210m), located on a rock top of Große Isidor mountain, is an excellent viewing spot that is easy to get to. It takes only a few minutes to climb from the Schaufeljoch mountain terminal to the platform using the metal steps provided. Many can feel the extreme altitude of more than 3,000m. So climb carefully! The viewing platform offers an awesome panoramic view: from the nearby glaciers of the Stubai to the Dolomites, the Ötztal Alps and hundreds of other summits of the Alps!
