In the morning, when the valley is still quite gloomy, hop on board the first gondola, right next to our resort. Up to the top of the Schmittenhöhe. From there, you will begin your hike. Into the sunrise. Watching as the sun steps out from behind the clouds. The red skies of dawn proclaim the arrival of a new day.
