We start our tour at the parking lot at the Brunnalm at the foot of the Hohe Veitsch. From here we hike past the valley station of the lift, cross the lift line to the forest road and follow this uphill to the fork. Here we branch off to the left, past the Scheikl Alpine Inn to the signpost Graf Meran Haus - Hohe Veitsch. Here we hike up the ski slope to the top station of the Sonnkogel lift and continue to follow the marking no. 465. The serpentines lead us directly to the Graf Meran Haus.
