The Hintere Sonnenkogel is one of the two Sonnenkögel, which lie southeast of the Lechtal village Bach. The Vordere Sonnenkogel at 2204 m is slightly lower than the 2324 m high Hintere Sonnenkogel. The two peaks are known for their views into the Lechtal. To climb the Rear Sonnenkogel you must first reach the Vordere Sonnenkogel. From Vorderer Sonnenkogel you descend a few metres into a saddle and along the steeply sloping ridge of grass on both sides to the summit of Hinterer Sonnenkogel. The ascent to the Hintere Sonnenkogel is somewhat more difficult than the ascent to the Vordere Sonnenkogel due to the missing path and the extremely steep grassland. The trail runs from Bach along the western side of the Alperschonbach to the last houses. There is also a parking lot on the left side. Continue along the road to Madau to the bend where a narrow marked path begins. The path runs on a constant gradient through the forest and later over steep grasslands on the Vorderer Sonnenkogel. An ascent from Bach takes about three hours. The transition from the front to the rear Sonnenkogel takes another 30 minutes. Stepping safety, alpine experience and freedom from dizziness are required for climbing both the front and the back of the Sonnenkogel. In wet, snow and ice, a tour is not recommended, as it can be very slippery and dangerous. A number of fatal accidents in recent years bear witness to this.
