I went up Grauleitenspitze for the third time on that day (the other times were in 1991 and 1992). It was fantastic weather, only the wind got a bit unpleasant in the end. I went up to the summit in 45 minutes from the Ankogelbahn top station, then down to the middle station via the Old Hannover hut, which has an interesting situation on 2521 meters height on a long and exposed (but not difficult to reach at all) spurn with a beautiful view.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
