The exposed location at the highest point of the western Fischbach Alps allows a distant view as far as the glacier world of the Hohe Tauern, but also as far as the plains of the eastern Styrian thermal region. Thus, this hike in the footsteps of the High Styrian BergZeitReise becomes a Styrian panoramic journey and at the same time also an appetizer for the Styria-wide round trip "from glacier to wine".
And because the panorama of this quite easy to reach peak high above Bruck an der Mur and Kapfenberg is not enough, there is also one of the coziest mountain huts in all of High Styria just below it in a scenic location.
Breitenau, Pernegg, Bruck, Kapfenberg or Frauenberg?
Magnificent view, hospitable hut and easy accessibility - so it is not surprising that from several valley towns climbs of various lengths lead to the 1,629m high peak. But not only day hikes from the Mur and Mürz valleys are possible to this gentle summit. Also the two- to three-day traverse of the entire Fischbacher Alps to the 1,783m high Stuhleck starts here - or ends here, depending on which direction you choose.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes a lot of things easier:
Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
Always use good, ankle-high shoes for all hikes! In winter, light crampons are recommended.
