Directly from the car park you follow the wide forest road which takes you gently ascending into the valley next to Horlachbach brook.

Another hour walk leads a bit steeper up to Schweinfurter Hütte (2.034 hm) towering on a panoramic saddleback below Sömenspitze summit. In winter the mountains around the hut are among the quietest within Ötztal. Therefore the hut is considered a true heaven for the winter walkers, tobogganers, snowshoe hikers and ski mountaineers.
