Challenge yourself with a steep climb to the Platter Grube and cross the spectacular suspension bridge between Brand and Burgstein.
Today’s route is a circular loop which offers great views of the Otztal. For the first part of this walk, you’ll ascend to the plateau between Brand and Burgstein. Pause to take in the fantastic panoramic views before crossing the suspension bridge, which hangs 200 metres above the ground. From here, the trail winds steeply back down and you’ll cross the valley to reach Huben and then follow the During-Höhenweg back to Längenfeld.
The first part of this leg is spectacular but challenging, kicking off with a 700-metre ascent. You’ll cross a 200-metre-high suspension bridge, and you must be confident walking at heights and steady on your feet for the descent to the hunting lodge.
We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.
In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack
