This year we stayed again (like in 2013) in the Silvrettahaus near the Silvretta reservoir. We arrived at Friday, the weather was perfect and we were looking forward to our hiking day on saturday.
We started from the Bielerhöhe and walked via Madlenerhaus and Tschiffernella to the Saarbrücker Hütte. It was a beautiful trail in a rocky landscape. In the higher regions most parts of the trail were covered with snow but it wasn’t a problem so far. After 2.5 hours we reached the Saarbrücker Hütte. It is the highest alpine hut in the Silvretta. From there you have a beautiful view of the Gross Litzner (3109m), the Gross Seehorn (3122m) and the Litzner glacier. And we were also lucky because we were told on the next day the hut would close for four months.
For our way back we planned to take the route via Litznersattel, Verhupftäli and the Klostertal. But after some discussions concerning the snow we decided to take the road back to the Bielerhöhe. As last year, we had to change our tour again due to the snow. Maybe next time we schedule our trip a few weeks earlier.
All in all it was about a 5 hours walk with 890 elevation gain.
