The Moosalm (1,500 m) is well known for its traditional Tyrolean cuisine. The way up takes just 45 minutes. We recommend to start at the Gaislachkogelbahn in the direction to the Camping and than over the bridge to the districts Platte and Wildmoos to Moosalm. Enjoy From there a fantastic panorama view over Sölden.
