On the second day you leave the beautiful village of Stuben and follow the forest path towards Flexental. Our destination today is Lech am Arlberg. Past the Mondscheinhütte hut and after crossing the Flexenbach stream, we head steeply towards the Flexenpass on the Franz-Josef-Weg trail. As Stuben is situated at 1,407 m, a dreamlike view awaits you along the hike. On the way, you will reach the European watershed, the hiking trail past goes in the direction of Zürs. In the village you board the Seekopfbahn cable car and ride up to an altitude of 2,212 m, you will be amazed at the view of the Zürsersee, any exertion is forgotten. The Seekopf Panorama Restaurant offers the opportunity for refreshment, which you will need as the trail continues steeply. You now reach a small and very quiet cotton grass plain, which offers you some relief after the steep trail. The next destination is the 2,450 m high Madlochjoch, over rocks and alpine meadows the trail leads you downhill over the Gstüatalpe. Before you reach Lech, enjoy the fantastic view of the 1,450 m high village.

You are at an altitude of 2,410 m and can already see the Stuttgarter Hütte, which is your intermediate destination. The trail continues on the Tyrolean side of the country, here it is almost level until you reach the Alpine Club Hut (Schwaben Section). There is enough time for a snack at the hut. Strengthened, the trail goes downhill, along flower meadows into the Paziel valley. You now cross the torrent before a short counter-ascension awaits you, this leads to the Trittalpe. Once you arrive, walk along an asphalted road in the direction of Zürs, where you board the post bus and travel to St. Anton am Arlberg.
