On the way from lovely Vent to the Rofenhöfe farmhouses you walk past the legendary summit cross of Wildspitze peak. The cross was put up by mountain guides and innkeepers from the Ötztal in 1933. In August 2010 the old cross of Wildspitze summit was replaced by a new one. Today you can admire the old cross if you take a walk from Vent to the Rofenhöfe farms – offering great views of the Wildspitze. The location is almost the same where the Schlagintweit alpinists started their mountain conquest in 1847, which failed. The very first ascent by Leander Klotz and his team took place in Rofen. Today all mountain fans can take a look at the original summit cross close-by. The easy walking tour to this famous cross is suitable also for families, children and elderly people.
Admire the former summit cross by enjoying splendid views of Wildspitze – The Peak of Tirol.
