From the Lünersee to the Lindauer Hütte | Brand - Latschau/Tschagguns

A footpath leads from Brand to the Lünersee cable way. From there, a steep ascent (partly a secured climb) over the Bösen Tritt to the Douglass Hut. With the Landbus line 81 and the Lünerseebahn you already gain altitude comfortably and save the first 3.5 hours of the tour - start at the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn.

From the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn directly at the Douglass Hut the hike starts along the Lünersee-Rundwanderweg (to the right) to the Lünersee Alp. From the Lünersee Alp slightly uphill and then left towards Verajöchle. Ascent to Verajöchle and then descent to the Schweizer Tor. At the Schweizer Tor a further ascent leads up to the Öfapass and from there the path leads downhill to the Lindauer Hut. Out of the valley on a good path over the Untere Spora Alp through the Gauertal to Latschau. From there bus (line 1) to Schruns - Montafonerbahn to Bludenz - bus (line 81) back to Brand or with the Golmerbahn from Latschau to Vandans and from Vandans with bus and train back to Brand.
