Hausgrabenkopf is one of the many secondary summits of Dürrnbachhorn within the southern part of Chiemgau Alps. Dürrnbachhorn and its two north ridges embrace the Langer Sand valley and canyon system north of the main ridge. Hausgrabenkopf sits on the western north ridge of Dürrnbachhorn.
There are several “Hausgraben” valleys culminating at Hausgrabenkopf summit: Langer Hausgraben to the east, Rohrechhausgraben to the west and Hausgraben to the north.
Hausgrabenkopf can be summited within 10 minutes from the northwest ascent route to Dürrnbachhorn. It is a nice rocky outcrop of the ridge, bears a summit cross and offers good views into Chiemgau Alps and down to the many lakes north of Dürrnbachhorn.
Trailhead is Lödensee parking area west of Langer Sand valley.
Please see the Dürrnbachhorn main page for further information.
