After the Grabneralm we follow the path 636 to the Admonterhaus (1 hour walking time). From there we follow trail 634 first up the Mittagskogel. The path, partly secured with ropes, has alpine character and requires surefootedness.
The easy and short way from there to the summit of the Natterriegel should not be missed.
For climbers the via ferrata to the Hexenturm is worthwhile(1 1/2h.)
The best thing is to staya night in one of the huts!

From here on, at regular intervals, you will come across information boards depicting past and present alpine pasture farming. This is an entertaining way to get to the Grabneralm.
When we are already tired, hungry and thirsty from the 1 1/2 hour hike, we stop to eat in the cosy garden or in the parlour.
But then we still have an hour's climb ahead of us. A path winds its way uphill until we finally see the Admonter's house majestically enthroned in the embrasure. We have reached our first destination - we might want to spend the night here and then the next morning join the Mittagskogel and Natterriegel (easy hike) or the Hexenturm (only for sure-footed and vertigo-free or via ferrata climbers).
