Destination

Main square of Mariazell

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the main square in Mariazell and walk along Wiener Neustädterstraße out of town in the direction of Kreuzberg. At the beginning of Ungarnstraße we cross the main road and reach Kreuzberg, which we hike down.

At the Gasthof Zur Weinperle we turn right onto the hiking trail 427 and walk up to the Eibelbauer and via the hiking trail 426 to Fallenstein. From there we walk along trail 428 past the Lechnerbauer farm, through the mountain forest up to Langboden and to the Tonionalm with the refuge. Via steeper hairpin bends we reach the summit slope above the timberline - a ridge along the summit with great views!

Shorter variant: drive to Fallenstein and start from there.

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!
