Destination

Vorderer Zeller Hut

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the main square Mariazell in the direction of Grazer Straße, at BIPA we turn right onto Dr. Ludwig Leber Straße to the gas station.

At the gas station we cross the federal road B20 and walk along the Teichmühleweg and Feldbauerweg (possibly with a detour to the AUGENblick "Feldbauer" to the Teichmühle.

There we cross the federal road B71 and follow the hiking trail 292 along a forest road up to the Köckensattel and over the Ochsenboden to the Feldhüttelsattel. Now we continue along the main ridge the first forest hilltop ("Feldhüttel") immediately, first very steeply to the Oischingkogel and already above the tree line to the summit of the Vorderer Zellerhuts.

An excellent view awaits us!

Important note: it gets steep at the end and the path becomes narrow, so only sure-footed hikers with good footwear should tackle this section.

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!
