Public transportation will take you from Klösterle to St. Christoph. The Berggeistweg is located near the church in St. Christoph and leads you over the Albonagrat to the Kaltenberghütte. The Kaltenberghütte is situated at an altitude of 2,089 m in a breezy balcony location high above the rearmost Klostertal, on the northern slope of the Kaltenberg. Thanks to the exposed position, there are beautiful views into the Klostertal and to the Flexenpass as well as to the opposite peaks of the Lechquellgebirge and the Verwallgebirge. At the Kaltenberghütte you can indulge in culinary delights. The descent leads you via Paul-Bantlin-Weg back to St. Christoph am Arlberg.
