After the long stage yesterday, today's route offers a little more relaxation. The path first leads you to the Peterköpfl, this small sub-summit invites you to add another Steinmandl to the many already existing ones. Steinmandl are layered stones that stand out from their surroundings like a snowman. In the past, the paths in the rough high mountains were marked with them, today they serve as unique photo motifs and offer the opportunity to immortalize yourself on the summit. The path takes you further to the Friesenbergscharte. Finally, follow the signs on the Berliner Höhenweg to the Olpererhütte. This hut is enthroned majestically above the Schlegeis reservoir lake and, with a short suspension bridge, offers the ideal opportunity for a perfect souvenir photo.
