One of the best vantage points in the Stubai Valley


Hikers and mountaineers who arrive here at the glacier view natural scene have reached what is probably one of the best vantage points in the Stubai Valley. If you look around you will immediately see that the term “glacier view” could hardly have been chosen more appropriately. All around you have a clear view of some of the most important peaks of the valley and the mighty glacier fields, which are called “Ferner” in Tyrolean. Looking east you can see the Habicht, where the Mischbachferner reaches just below the summit, almost exactly like the Grünauferner near the Wilder Freiger - a little further to the right of the Habicht. In the south, the Zuckerhütl, Wilder Freiger and Wilder Pfaff rise. Below the flank of the Zuckerhütl, the Sulzenauferner, the largest glacier in the Stubai Alps, pushes down into the valley. It is also he who gives the entire valley its alpine character and is already visible at the entrance to the Stubai Valley. Its bluish, wavy icefall, which flows into a glacial lake, is particularly impressive.

By the beginning of the 21st century, the Sulzenauferner had merged with the Fernerstube - another glacier that flows down from the west side of the Wilder Liberer. The Brennerspitze rises in the middle of the field of vision and to the right of it the mighty Alpeiner Ferner, above the Franz-Senn-Hütte, forms the end of the Oberbergtal valley.
