You’d better have plenty of strength and some well-trained muscles! The “Ludwig-Dürr-Weg” packs quite a punch! But if you don’t, there’s also a second – moderately difficult – alternative route.
Starting point is the Friedrichshafener hut at 2,138 metres above sea level. The first version of the route leads you along the famous (and notorious) “Ludwig-Dürr-Weg”. It’s by far the most challenging trail of the entire Paznaun High Route. The second version is a lot more moderate in terms of difficulty and perfect for less experienced alpinists.
The “Ludwig-Dürr-Weg” is the most difficult high-alpine part of the Paznaun High Route and is only recommended for experienced alpinists! Please check the current weather conditions ahead of the hike!

In good spirits, we continue on to stage 8 of the Paznaun High Route! This stage leads past idyllic mountain lakes, across lush green mountain pastures and through rocky terrain.
Tip: If your strength and the weather allow it, you should climb the Hoher Riffler (3,168 metres above sea level) in the afternoon! Walking time is about 2.5 hours from the Edmund Graf hut to the summit.
Take a little breather at the Schmalzgrubenseen lakes and let the surrounding landscape and the crystal-clear water enchant you!
