Author’s recommendation

5 minutes walk from the parking lot at GH Donner is the Johnsbacher Bergsteigerfriedhof. 200 years ago, the first person to die in the Gesaeuse mountains was buried here. Numerous historical gravestones tell the tragic story of many young climbers who died in the Gesaeuse mountains.

Destination

Johnsbach - Gasthof Donner

Turn-by-turn directions

We walk up to the Mödlinger Hütte in 2 hours on a comfortable, sometimes steeper path.

Then we take trail no. 673 in a south-westerly direction and soon reach the summit cross of the Spielkogel at 1,731 m. Always along the crest we first reach the Anhartskogel and the Niederberg.

Now we have to watch out for the signpost "Sebringgraben" on the left side. A path leads us down to the Wölgeralm, where we meet the forest road, which winds down into the Johnsbach valley in almost endless serpentines. There we meet the Schattseitenweg, which we follow along the Johnsbach to GH Donner.

Hallo, eine wunderschöne Tour, die einem auch einiges abverlangt. Darum auf der Mödlinger Hütte kräftig stärken und genug zu trinken mitnehmen. Die Tour ist gut beschildert und ab der Wölgeralm muss man nicht auf dem Forstweg ins Tal sondern es führt ein herrlicher Weg durch Wald und Weiden talwärts. LG Herbert
