Starting point is the restaurant Strassberg (1,919m). Turn right just after the Brunnenhütte (fountain hut) and keep hiking slightly uphill along farms and always accompanied by "Mungga-Pffifen" (marmot whisltes). At the saddle (1,981m) the trail turns left and ascents towards the Duranna pass. Before the top of the pass you will find the Grünsee lake (2,110m) in a trough. The lake is just perfect to take a short swim and cool down.

Author’s recommendation
