From the car park "Mure" in Umhausen you walk comfortably through the district Neudorf. After crossing the Fundus bridge, follow the wide forest path to the crossroads Fundustal (left) and Leierstal (right). Hike the path to the left into the Fundus valley, pass the Vordere Fundusalm (not managed) and then hike on to the Hintere Fundusalm. The Fundus valley in the eastern Ötztal Alps lies lonely and high above Umhausen. The loneliness and the beauty of nature can be wonderfully enjoyed here. Green meadows and the crystal-clear Fundussee invite you to linger on a hot summer's day. From the Hintere Fundusalm you reach comfortably the Frischmannhut on the forest path in about 30 minutes. 

There is also a possibility to drive from the Hintere Fundusalm with the hut taxi back to Umhausen.
