Intermediate hikes

Finkenberg – Brunnhaus – Gamshütte

Starting at the Teufelsbrücke (Devil’s Bridge) turn right and follow the road (path nr. 34) for aprox. 1 km until the turn-off for the Hermann-Hecht-Weg Nr. 533 to the Gamshütte. Located below the summit of the three peaks of Mount Grinberg, the Gamshütte is the first station of the Berlin High Trail. However, as a relatively easy day hike, it is anappealing destination for less ambitious hikers. The view alone from the hut over the Zillertal Main Ridge with its’ subsidiary valleys (Gründe in German) is ample reward for the uphill climb.
