A place in the sun, lots of dark wood, easily accessible and managed all year - so you could summarize the pluses of the Nisslalm. Thanks to the innkeepers Albertina and Albrich Haller, who maintain their position 365 days a year up to an altitude of 2,054 m, the fact that there are also hot and cold dishes throughout the day. The views into the Sulztal make the trip to a high alpine experience. From the Gries parking lot, follow the path for about half an hour to the Sulztal in the direction of Sulztalalm, turn right (signposted) and climb up the Zirbenwald in evenly inclined bends. Finally, the forest clears - on a sunny balcony is the 130-year-old Nisslalm. Due to the north-facing orientation, the slope of the Nisslalm is snow reliable for a relatively long time, usually from the beginning of December to mid-April. The descent takes place the same way or with the sled.

When ascending, please expect toboggan oncoming traffic !!
