Alpine meadows and huts along the Kaunertal Glacier Scenic Road

Whether you are an athlete or not, you can still enjoy the Kaunertal’s mountains! An excursion on the Kaunertal Glacier Road up to the Weißsee glacier restaurant, located at 2,750 metres, promises all day-trippers a veritable journey into the blue with spectacular mountain views and a plethora of eating options. Depending on your mood, you can choose between coffee and cake or Kaiserschmarrn (chopped pancake speciality) at one of the rustic mountain huts, a picnic in the countryside or your self-made menu at the glacier restaurant.
