Gentian Trail

A great natural landscape as well as a majestic panoramic view characterise the Enzianweg path in the Rofan Mountains

A really varied hiking path is the so-called Enzianweg, which means Gentian Trail. The hiking path starts at the valley station or mountain station of the Rofan Cable Car. From this place the path proceeds via the Mauritz Mountain Hut the way up to the east edge of Mt. Gschöllkopf, and further on to Mt. Hochiss (2,299 m a.s.l.), which is the highest mountain of the Rofan Group.

Proceeding down towards Mt. Streichelkopf, you reach the Dalfaz Mountain Hut, where you can of course stop for a bite to eat. From this place you can proceed on foot or via cable car into the valley. Otherwise you can walk to Buchau and go back to the valley station of the Rofan Cable Car by bus. Due to its particular natural beauty as well as its cultivation and marking, the Gentian Trail has been awarded with the special honouring "Bergweg mit Auszeichnung".
