On this tour you can expect an easy summit climb, which is rewarded with a dream view. From the Schneiderkogel you have an impressive panoramic view of hundreds of peaks all around and the great mountain personalities around the Tauplitzalm - the mighty Grimming, which towers over the Enns Valley, the famous Dachstein massif, the rugged stone walls in the Tote Gebirge and the sunny Tauplitzalm, which with its six lakes is the largest lake plateau in Central Europe.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the small mountain church on the Tauplitzalm is worthwhile. With its characteristic roof shape and stained glass windows, it is the perfect place for an inner retreat.

Start at the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift in a westerly direction to the Hotel Hierzegger. The ascent to the 1,765 meter high Schneiderkogel takes place via the west side. It is a summit climb of the rather easy kind without much effort. And even if the one or other drop of sweat falls: The dream view is worth every step.

Author’s map recommendations

Hiking maps and free general maps are available in the information offices of the Ausseerland.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many 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!
