WINDACHALM --> Gaisstabel -->steiler Gaiskarweg --> HILDESHEIMER HÜTTE
The Hildesheimer hut (2899m) was built in 1896 and is located in the Stubai Alps, surrounded by Zuckerhütl (highest mountain of the Stubai Alps) 3.505m, Schußgrubenkogel 3.211m, Schaufelspitze 3.333m, Stubaierwildspitz 3.340m, Gaiskogel 3.129m, Wilder Pfaff 3.458m, the Pfaffenschneide 3.498m
The hike will be started at the Windachalm / Fiegls hut. Through the wide Windachtal wanders up to the Gaisstabel material cable car.From here there are two possibilities of ascent: The Ludwig-Aschenbrenner-Weg has a slight but longer ascent and the Steep Gaiskar-Weg (as described here), as the name suggests, a steeper but shorter climb.
In summer there is a taxi, which runs from Sölden to the Windachalm. So you save the way from Sölden to the Windachalm. There is the possibility for a backpack transport with the material cable car.
Red mountain trails are moderately difficult: some narrow and steep, but assured walking and climbing passages are waiting for hikers. The corresponding signs are in yellow basic color and have a red circle as a difficulty indication.
Suitable for sure-footed and experienced hikers;good physical condition, mountain experience and mountain equipment (see under equipment) necessary.
