Long, scenic hike to Mittelberg via the Braunschweiger Hütte. The first part can be dangerous as the path leads you over the Mittelbergferner (Glacier). Then the trail follows an easy route to the Hütte. The route from the Hütte to Mittelberg is very strenuous and in some parts very steep downhill. Be cautious! You will have to use artificial stairs (ropes). The last part is a very easy road downhill.

- Always be prepared for changing weather, especially in these high alpine areas. Also have good hiking equipment to cross the glacier.

I would not recommend to hike the trail starting from Mittelberg as there are some very (sometimes extreme) parts uphill. Only for the experienced hikers!
