Through the Kristeinertal valley to the Gölbnerblick Mountain Hut

Alpine pastures, a rushing waterfall and a fantastic view on the Mt. Gölbner from the rustic mountain hut – all that can be experienced during this hike in the East Tyrolean Val Pusteria valley.

The Kristeinertal is a side valley of the Val Pusteria and stretches into the Villgraten Mountains near Mittenwald an der Drau. North of Vergein, at the bend of the Val Pusteria mountain road, the gravelled road to the alpine pastures of the valley starts where our hike begins. Meadows and woods alternate, the path is quite flat and after approx. 4 km we cross a bridge to the western side of the valley, past the Lake-Lois pond we walk further towards the head of the valley.

Soon afterwards the path proceeds towards the Celar Waterfall. The trail no. 7A which leads us to a viewing platform at the waterfall branches to the left. Those who walk this path further uphill, reach the alpine meadows of Celar where the destination of our hike is located, the Gölbnerblick Hütte mountain hut. The hut invites to take a rest and to enjoy local delicacies before we start back again. Instead of taking the trail 7A, we walk on the path no. 6 which is wider and less steep.
