The starting point of this varied mountain tour is at the Giebelhaus in the Ostrachtal, which we can easily reach by bus from Hinterstein. From there we walk along the Bärgündele stream into the valley of the same name. From the unmanaged Pointhütte we walk up a narrow hiking trail to the Untere Bärgündele Alpe. Here it is worth taking a break on the sun terrace. From there we continue uphill to the Prinz-Luitpold-Haus, where we spend the night. From the refuge, we then follow a narrow, well-marked hiking trail through a barren landscape of scree, constantly uphill. Here, sure-footedness and a head for heights are required in places. At the summit of the Hochvogel we are rewarded with an incomparable view, which quickly makes us forget the efforts of the ascent. After a rest at the summit cross, we return to our starting point at the Giebelhaus.
