The red stone is 2366  m above sea level. A. high mountain in the Lechtal Alps in the Austrian state of Tyrol .

Location and surroundings

The Rote Stein lies within the Lechtal Alps in the Lorea group , according to the classification in the Alpine Club Guide from 1981. The largest valley town at the foot of the mountain is Berwang in the east of the Lechtal Alps. Another valley location and starting point for an ascent is the hamlet of Bichlbächle .



Since the summit is relatively easy to reach for the experienced, the first ascent should have been made early by local shepherds and hunters. The first documented ascent was carried out by a certain Vogl on behalf of the geognostic-mining association for Tyrol and Vorarlberg , which had set itself the goal of geological exploration. Vogl reached the summit in the 1840s.


The Füssen section of the Alpine Club laid a path from the Bichelbächler Jöchle to the summit in 1911.

Routes to the summit

The easiest ascent takes place without difficulty in just under two and a half hours from Berwang via the Gröbener Älpele and the western flank of the Red Stone. Another ascent option is from Bichlbächle via a secured and marked trail (Füssener Weg) on ​​the east side of the mountain (2.5 hours). Next is the ascent from the Fernpass through the Kälbertal, which in the upper part also flows into the Füssener Weg (3.5 hours).
