Via Cimaross to the Kals-Matreier-Törl ridge

This circular walk proceeds from the mountain station of the Goldried Cable Car across the meadows below the peaks of the Rotenkogel and Gorner up to the Adlerlounge viewpoint and downhill to the Kals-Matreier-Törl ridge.

This short circular walk is just the thing for those who want to enjoy a free view on mountains and valleys without undertaking a demanding alpine hiking tour. The Goldried Cable Car starts in Matrei in Osttirol and takes us up to the mountain station at 2,100 m near the Goldried Restaurant. The route follows the driveway through the alpine landscape uphill to the Adlerlounge viewpoint on the Cimaross. From there we enjoy a breathtaking view on Grossglockner, Grossvenediger and Rötspitz. Stunning!

The second part of our hike proceeds downhill. First on the path no. 27 to the Kals-Matreier-Törl ridge (there is also a rest point) then along the connection path back to the mountain station of the Goldried Cable Car again. The 5.5 km long and easy route can be managed within about 2 hours (pure walking time).
