Hiking the Furgler in Austria

Hiked on: Oct 10 2018
October 2018 I hiked the Furgler in Serfaus. The entire hike took me about 5 hours. I never hiked a mountain as high as the Fugler. The Furgler has an altitude of 3004 meters.

I know the area quite well. I visit Serfaus Fiss Ladis every year in winter for a wintersport holiday. Since I visit the area every year, it kind of feels like a second home to me. If you never visited Serfaus Fiss Ladis before, I highly recommend checking it out. 

The start of the hike

The best way to start your hike towards the Furgler is from the Lazidbahn (2351meters). From there it is a short and easy walk over the Murmeltiersteig towards the Scheid / Moosbahn at 2429 meters). Once you reached this point, the climbing begins. The hiking trail starts with a 50 meter climb. 

When to visit Austria?

October is a nice month to visit Austria because it isn't that busy. You have to be lucky with the weather. I would recommend visiting Austria in September or the beginning of October.
