There you need to turn off at a newly erected large hut to the Schönvalley, from where you can follow the green and white orientation signs of the “Grenzland” hiking trail.

Obertilliach – Hut Conny – Lift Glamp – Obertilliach

Exhausting mountain bike tour to the Hut Conny or further to the upper station of the Lift Glamp. Starting from the bottom station of the Golzentipp cable railway, you'll soon reach and master the first steep section of about 200 metres. After that, the ascent stays relatively even along the sledging track, across the forest and up to the timber line. As soon as you've reached the Hut Conny, 7 km are already behind you. If you choose to go on the longer tour, you need to turn left about 120 m before the Hut Conny and ride along the new path past the upper cable railway station, heading towards a water reservoir and finally up to the upper station of the Lift Glamp. This last bit from the Hut Conny to the Lift Glamp is about 1,8 km long.

In autumn, the belling of the stags can be heard all across the forests and meadows. 32 weeks of gestation later, the offspring is ready to see the light of day in the midst of the Tyrolean mountains. Would you like to experience the fascinating belling yourself? Then book one of our southern rooms from mid September to mid October and enjoy the spectacle right from your hotel room. If you're lucky, you may even happen to catch a glimpse of a small roe paying a nightly visit to the Hotel Weiler.
