Parking lot Friedrichshafener Lodge (Valzur district) along the shortcut to the lodge
The Friedrichshafener Lodge is a well-maintained mountain inn, built form natural stone, located at 2,151 m in the Verwall Alps, about 700 metres in altitude above Mathon. From the starting point - the parking lot of the Friedrichshafener Lodge in Valzur district - the route leads along the shortcut up to the lodge in about two hours. The first part of the route passes through the forest, then impressive views open up above the treeline towards Ischgl and Galtür with their local mountains "Rauer Kopf" and "Gorfenspitze".
If this route is too steep for you, we recommend the alternative road way which is also suitable for off-road prams and less steep. The route winds its way along 16 curves up to the lodge. A small lake right by the lodge perfectly tops off the scene and provides refreshment on hot summer days.
Those staying overnight in Galtür can also get to the Friedrichshafener Lodge along the impressive route, covering 1,000 meters in altitude (not suitable for prams).
