From the parking place you were accompanied by hiking guide Richard, first along the forest road and then the path through light larch forest. After about 2 hours you reach the Klosteralm hut (2,152 m above sea level) which is situated in a wonderful panoramic position. From there you continue along trail no. 23 until you reach the picturesque Saxalbsee lake (2,482 m above sea level) and you were rewarded with a magnificent view of the Pfossental Valley and the numerous three thousand metre peaks in the Nature Park Texel Group.
