Overview

Hinteres Sonnendwendjoch is an austrian mountain at the border to Bavaria. It is the highest elevation in this region around the Ackernalm. But this austrian mountain belongs geographically to the Bavarian Alps. The view from summit is stunning, because the southern mountain are smaller and allow a view to the Hohe Tauern, Zillertal Alps, Tuxer Alps and Rofangebirge.
