It is not without reason that the highest mountain in the Stubai Alps has the name it does. If you take a look at the summit from the east, you will understand why it is called Zuckerhütl (German term for sugarloaf), a brave pyramidal peak, like a sugarloaf on the one side, charming from the other; cool and denying, rocky and rough on the next side. The Zuckerhütl reigns over the region. The highest mountain of the Stubai valley is positioned at the border to South Tyrol, but yet is still solely on North Tyrolean territory. Despite its impressive height of 3,507 meters above sea level, the Zuckerhütl is a rather conservative mountain, however even it is not a ”walk in the park”. Above all, it is the climb to the peak that can pose challenging.
