Take path no. 677 from Sender, then cross three forest roads before firstly reaching the large gravel field. Keep left and follow path no. 677 to the peak (only for experienced mountain hikers). Here, you will have a lovely view of Upper Ennstal’s mighty mountains.

The path leads north of the peak down some secured steep steps, past Kammalm and continuing down until reaching the idyllic Miesbodensee (no. 28).

After arriving there, you can comfortably continue to Viehbergalm with serviced cabins (during the summer). The descent (no. 28) through Eckangerl and the “Wurf” (coll.) to the Rahnstube will take approx. 3/4 of an hour. Afterwards, follow the forest path south through the Öfen gorge until reaching your destination - the Kneipp facility.

 

 

Author’s recommendation

We recommend obtaining an automobile BEFORE the tour to the Kneipp facility and driving up to Sender with the other automobile. Kneipp facility - Sender distance: approx. 6.2 km (10 min travel time, 1 hr. 22 min. walking time).
