From the parking lot at the end of the village of Gries the path leads almost flat through snow-covered meadows to the Vögelasbrücke. From here, a clear slope is noticeable. After another three bends, follow the signs to Sulztalalm and leave the fork to Nisslalm on the right. The Fischbach which arises in the Sulze from several spring streams and "the queen of the Alps" the stone pine accompanies them to the Sulztalalm.

Author’s recommendation

Try the Sulztal noodles or one of the homemade cakes. They deserve it after the walk.
