Mountain hike to the Schusterplatte (2957 m)

The Schusterplatte between the Innerfeld and Fischleintal valleys is an extremely rewarding summit with great views.

A worthwhile and highly recommended ascent, where in the south the red-yellow facades of the Paternkofel and the Tre Cime shine, while in the north the view is somewhat limited by the mighty Dreischusterspitze.

Route description: From the mountain hotel, take the bus or car to the Fischleintal valley. From there, the path leads to the Talschlusshütte and further on trail No. 102 to the right up towards the Dreizinnenhütte. Just before the hut comes into view, a signpost points right to the Schusterplatte, leads to the nearby Innichriedl (2381 m, historical trenches) and crosses the saddle. Then you climb up a scree slope covered with grass and follow to the left through a small valley section (historical war tunnels) to the Niederjoch (2465 m). Along old military roads, the path quickly leads into the Innichriedlkar, across the plain and directly into a wide scree gully. This is laboriously but easily overcome on a path marked with cairns, until you reach water-polished rock steps. Here keep to the left and climb up the rock steps (difficulty level 1. alpine grade). Above the steep steps, you reach a scree basin, cross it and climb steeply up a rocky slope to the Altensteinscharte. From a notch, there is a view of the impressive Weißlahn. To the left, the path leads over partly exposed ledges and scree slopes, past bizarrely shaped rocks, to the elongated and flat summit ridge, marked by cairns and a survey point at the northernmost end. The return is via the same route, with the option to stop at the Dreizinnenhütte or descend into the Innerfeldtal valley.

Tips and notes: The Schusterplatte, a popular destination among mountaineers, is characterized by its spectacular view and relatively easy access. It is located on the south-north axis of the Dreischuster group and offers a unique view of the nearby Dreischusterspitze. The summit, known for its elongated, flat shape and the cairns, promises an unforgettable experience. Despite the length of the tour (> 20 km), it is recommended for experienced mountain hikers.
