Most of the farms are "Wipptaler Einhäuser", where the living and feeding house are built together under a flat gable roof.

From the village square in Gossensaß (1080 m) first up between the houses to the somewhat elevated church, then from the northern cemetery gate over to the houses of the Gänsbichl district (the route formerly marked with no. 1 has been unmarked for some time, unless this has changed recently) and right along the old Brenner path to a meadow saddle with a chapel; turn left here, along a meadow path to two railway houses, up their access road to a small group of farms, up along an old footpath to the former railway station “Schelleberg” (1241 m), continue along a sparse footpath up to the large but uninhabited Schusterbauer farm (with chapel, approx. 1275 m), on the old path to the right up to the Gasserhof (one of the highest in Innergiggelberg, 1322 m), continue to the cross-country farm road and on this, crossing the nearby Bachgraben, over to the farm group Außergiggelberg (1362 m, no inn); from Gossensaß just under 1:30-2:00 hrs. The descent is best made via the described ascent
