It lies at an altitude of 2 165 metres, is a good ten kilometres distant from Galtür and belongs to the Swabian section of the German Alpine Association. It’s the ideal base camp from which to scale the Jamspitze, Fluchthorn and Dreiländerspeitze. Or to try award-winning chef Sven Wassmer’s fabulous char dish.
The hut lies at a height of 2 151m above the Muttenalpe. The view from here is superb, and if you’re very hot after the steep climb up from Mathon, you can cool off in the little pool. There’s a particular culinary attraction this summer: the Kaiserschmarren (Austrian fluffy pancakes) created for the Friedrichshafener Hut by award-winning chef Heinz Winkler.
This hut is on Swiss land. At a height of 2 264m, it has a long story to tell. Since this summer, there’s one more chapter to add: Michelin three-star chef Harald Wohlfahrt has paid the Heidelberger Hut a visit – and left a wonderful dish behind.
At a height of almost 2 000m, the attractive newly-built Almstüberl can be reached on a one-hour hike from the Dias mountain station – and as well as its own hut dishes, it has a very special creation by the award-winning British chef Michael Wignall on its menu.
If you think the hardest part of mountain biking is over when you’ve made it to the top, you’re mistaken. And you really should read these tips right now, before you set off on your bike into the mountains.
As it’s not as hot in the mountains as on the flat, the power of the sun is often underestimated. Seven numbers to help you to enjoy the sun’s rays as much as possible.
The Top of the Mountain Biker Summit in Paznaun continues until Sunday. One of the highlights each year is riding down the Silvretta High Alpine road. And it’s not only bikers who love it.
When one motorbike comes round the corner, there’s almost always another one following close behind. And then at least one more. Bikers love to ride in a group. Why is that?
The tenth edition of the Culinary Way of St James starts this weekend. The idea behind this unique event is well known by now: award-winning chefs from across Europe create dishes which are served throughout the whole summer in five mountain huts. Trisanna presents the chefs, their dishes and the mountain huts.
As sooner as it becomes warmer, the snow melts and the water flows down into the valley. The rushing of the streams is often impressive – but the great run-off can have far-reaching consequences.
On Saturday it’s the big day: Helene Fischer appears on the stage at Idalp for the end of season concert. The stage alone is an attraction in itself. It sits enthroned at an altitude of […]
When the sun starts shining for longer again, nature wakes up – and people are coaxed outside again, too, for longer and more often. But the power of the sun in spring is often underestimated.
We measure the temperature in degrees, of course. Celsius. Or is it Fahrenheit? Haven’t we also heard something about temperatures in Kelvin? What does it all actually mean on a scale of zero to one hundred?
Idalp is the hub at the centre of the Silvretta Arena. It’s worth taking a closer look at this special place. Here are the facts.
When the temperatures warm up, the snow changes, too – and with it, the skiing. A short explanation of terms.
The See ski area is well laid-out, popular with families and leisure skiers – and innovative. Because not only is snow produced here, but also the electricity to make that snow. And more. Trisanna reports from the station of the future.
The avalanche risk level in Paznaun has just been classified as “very high”. A good moment to remember how dangerous avalanches are and what we can do to avoid that danger – at least in part.
Accidents happen time and again in the snow. Even if you get off lightly, it can take hours until help arrives. But least you can’t die of thirst there, can you?
How many kilometres of ski runs are there? How many ski lifts? And how many people can be brought up the mountain each hour? Trisanna’s got the fantastic figures – for you to guess. Click here to play.
