To the highest peak in Vorarlberg: Even if the Piz Buin, 3,312 m, is only the third highest Silvretta peak - Piz Linard and Ruhehörner are even higher - no one comes close to it in terms of popularity. This is not only because of the sunscreen of the same name, but also because of the scenic climb and the central location, which offers a fantastic panoramic view from the summit. Despite the many visitors, the tour should not be underestimated; building up to the summit is demanding and requires appropriate skill.

Ascent You should allow around 2 hours for the ascent to the Wiesbadener Hütte .

From here towards the Vermunt glacier, then below the glacier to the right into the saddle south of the Grüne Kuppe (2,579 m) and onto the Ochsental glacier.

With a gain in altitude of just a few meters, you cross the entire glacier into the area with fewer crevasses below the steep eastern walls of the Silvrettahorn. At the foot of the cliffs, first in a southerly, then very flat southeasterly direction into the Buinlücke (3,054 m) between the large and small Piz Buin (ski depot).

Over the first steep slope to a small step, then an easy climb to a steep and exposed chimney.

Above this the terrain becomes flatter again and finally you reach the summit, which is known for its views, via the northwest ridge. Descent When descending, you first choose the ascent route and then follow the beautiful ski slopes of the Ochsental Glacier down to the valley floor at an altitude of around 2,300 m.

From there you can either climb back to the hut in just under 30 minutes or continue through the Ochsental out to Bielerhöhe.
