Berliner Höhenweg day four: Furtschaglhaus to Berliner Hütte

This hike crosses a saddle.  From the saddle it is a short climb to the peak, the Schönbichler Horns at 3,134 m.  I left my pack at the saddle and climbed to the peak.

The view over the surrounding alps is beautiful as you are above most of the surrounding peaks.

The descent is somewhat tricky, and I learnt what “via ferrate” is in German: “Klettersteig”.

The Berliner Hütte was built by the Berlin section of the German Alpine Club in 1879 and is grandiose.  Early photos show it at the edge of a glacier, which is no longer there.
