Saxeralm about Anna Stainer-Knittel memorial trail

The Saxeralm lies high above the mountain village of Madau near Bach in the Lech Valley. The idyllic location in the middle of the mountain world of the Lechtal Alps and the wonderful view distinguish this alp. It is not for nothing that the Saxeralm is an insider tip for hikers and mountaineers looking for peace and quiet, and since summer 2015 the Anna Stainer-Knittel memorial trail has been running along this path. The hike from the Eckhöfen over the Alperschon valley to the Saxeralm is possible as a round tour and the total walking time is about 5 hours (without access from Bach)

. We started the hike to the Saxeralm at the junction Alperschontal, about 1 km before the mountain village Madau. From there we hiked along the Alperschonbach into the picturesque Alperschon valley. A few hundred metres before the Alperschonalm at the back, a path branches off to the left in the direction of the Saxeralm. The path leads up the mountain in serpentines below the imposing free peak. After a first ascent through the dense spruce forest, the trail mostly leads along extensive mountain meadows, which are covered with individual larches. The Saxeralm can be reached after another one and a half hours walking time after crossing some small valleys. After an extensive snack on the Saxeralm we dared the descent into the Parseiertal, which also runs along a path. In the valley floor, at the former Seelenalpe, we reach the gravel road into Parseiertal, which we followed out of the valley to the starting point.

The starting point can be reached either by regular taxi from Bach, by mountain bike or on foot along the 8 km long mountain road to Madau or the Madauer Höhenweg. A journey with your own car is not possible due to the driving ban
