R37 Ginzling » Finkenberg
  |   2h15   |   9.6 km   |   204 m   |   355 m

A leisurely hike from Ginzling across the meadows on the valley floor of the Zemmtal valley outwards along the "Lass dir erzählen... von Karlsteg nach Breitlahner" theme trail (“Let us tell you...”), past the Gamsgrube snack-bar and Karlsteg inn. Continue on a narrow woodland path up to Finkenberg - Dornau. Here, the "Glocke" (“bell”) nature trail leads into a beech wood, which is a rarity in the Central Alps!

    35ème et dernière étape pour cette année.
    Pas très intéressante, il faut bien l'avouer, car il y a des travaux sur le chemin. Le mieux aurait été que je suive la route pendant 4 à 5 kilomètres (à la sortie du pont env. 1 petit km après le Gastaus Karlsteg). Le chemin monte alors dans la forêt, et c'est ici plus sympa.
    En arrivant, je suis allé directement sur Mayrhofen, en laissant Finkenberg de côté, pour rejoindre le joli train touristique de la Zillertal qui mène à la vallée d'Innsbruck.
    A l'année prochaine!

    The Ginzling hiking path to Gasthaus Karlstag is partly gone due to an avalanche, you have to hike the road. The supermarket in Ginzling is permanently closed. Several people told me that there's a campsite in Ginzling, well there is not, but apparently it happens often that hikers camp near the information centre. I asked around and got a nice place near the music theatre thingy.

    If the weather is nice and you want a less boring day with far better views: Ginzling -> Gamsgrube [Georg-Herholz-Weg] -> Gamshutte [lunch: Specknodelsuppe] -> [Hermann-Hecht-Weg] Finkeberg. It's about 1,000m up and down, perhaps 3 hours up and 2 hours down along very well constructed trails.

    In Finkenberg, the Balthasarhof (nr 126) you will be welcomed with a schnapps. B&B €35pp. Recommended, I had dinner in nearby Hotel Eberl, where locals sang some beautiful authentic Jodl music.

    Etape déroutante s'il en est !
    L'itinéraire est court, trés court ...Mais c'est aussi un moment de respiration pour observer le travail des hommes et la descente du foin dans des pentes impossibles au dessous d'immenses lignes electriques car plus haut les barrages turbinent ...eux aussi !
    Pour autant je n'ai pas échappé à la pluie ...A FINKENBERG j'ai trouvé assez facilement un hotel :
    HOTEL DORNAUHOF
    Familie KROLL
    308 DORNAU / 6292 FINKENBERG
