The former mining village of Ratten in Peter Rosegger's Waldheimat is the starting point for this stage. Even today, the mining museum recalls the work of the miners underground more than 60 years ago. Also in the park of the village sculptures and replicas remind of the mining of that time. Once you have reached the Roseggerhaus on the Pretul after the ascent, there are also some interesting things to see there. In addition to the magnificent view of the surrounding mountains, the striking Peter Bergner Warte also stands out. This was built in memory of the innkeeper of the Rosegger Schutzhaus, Peter Bergner, who was murdered in 1904.

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 maps, belong on top.

An emergency kit belongs in every backpack!

A clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!

A good hiking shoe is a good companion and should never be missing on the mountain!
