Brand - Lünersee - Totalp Hütte | Brand

The tour starts with a small challenge, the "Böser Tritt". But no problem for the sure-footed hiker. Alternatively, you can shorten this stretch with the Lünerseebahn. At the sign for Lünersee Rundweg (no. 91.100), you turn right uphill along the fantastic rock massif for the last few metres in the direction of Totalphütte. Return via the same path or via a more direct descent to Lünersee.

The path to the hut is also good for older mountain lovers and children. Christian and his team will spoil you with many delicacies from Austrian and international cuisine, as well as with their own specialities. From the hut you can enjoy an unforgettable view of the Silvretta, Verwall and Bernina groups.
