The starting point of this demanding hike is the parking place Glanz. From there, follow either the wide road or the somewhat steeper forest path. Then walk across the so-called Edelweißwiese and stay on the same path to reach the hut Äußere Steiner Alm. From the Äußere Steiner Alm, take the marked trail towards the hut Sudetendeutsche Hütte, which first leads over a flat valley floor and then over steeper terrain. The trail continues along the stream Steinerbach until the terrain becomes somewhat flatter again. Soon you are greeted by the imposing moutain range Granatspitzgruppe with its magnificent mountain peaks. The hut Sudetendeutsche Hütte, embedded in this group, is already in view at this point.
