Destination

Potsdamer Hut

Turn-by-turn directions

From the bus stop, walk back in the direction the bus came from for just a short distance until you see a road branching off uphill and to the right toward Tannrain. At the top of the hill, take a sharp right, walking past a few houses, and then continuing on the trail signed out for the Fotschertal. The route finding from here is quite easy...always head up the valley. Eventually you will pass the Luderskaseralm and Gasthof Bergheim. Note: it is possible to take a taxi to Gasthof Bergheim and bypass the long walk on the forest road. 

 

From Gasthof Bergheim, the road heads up steeply and continues toward the back of the valley. Shortly after rounding a corner, you'll see a sign for the summer route to the Potsdamer Hut. This is the most direct route and is a nice trail. It is also possible to continue the road all the way to the hut.
