The Strahlkopf is a 2388 m high peak in the Allgäu Alps. The summit is usually climbed in combination with the Jöchelspitze or the Rothornspitze. The easiest way to climb the blasting head is from Bach. From the valley station of the Lechtaler Bergbahnen you follow the path in the direction of Jöchelspitze, past the mountain station to Lachenkopf. Alternatively, you can ride the 600 m altitude difference with the 2-seater chairlift. At Lachenkopf we continue below Jöchelspitze to the Rothornjoch. At the Rothornjoch we continue in the direction of Großer Krottenkopf. After a few hundred metres an overgrown path branches off towards Gumpensattel. At the Gumpensattel, a highly overgrown path for an experienced climber leads to the summit of Strahlkopf without any notable difficulties. It is also possible to climb the summit without a path over the steep grassy slopes of the western flank. Climbing in wet conditions is not recommended and can be dangerous under certain circumstances. The walking time from the valley station of the Jöchelspitze lift in the Benglerwald is about 3 hours. Sure-footedness, alpine experience and freedom from dizziness are required.
