Turn-by-turn directions

The Postalm Panorama Trail offers a variety of vantage points and a magnificent winter panorama along its route. From the entrance at car park P3, the trail first runs uphill and then slightly downhill past the Stroblerlift to the Huberhütte. From the Huberhütte, the panoramic trail leads over undulating terrain past the Wiesler hut towards the Schafbergblickhütte (hut). Here you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Wieslerhorn. Now the trail leads slightly downhill to the historic Postalm chapel, always with the Rinnkogel in view, back to the starting point P3.

Ein Traumhaft schöner Tag, der sich dann zum Desaster mit starkem Nebeleinfall und Null Sicht wandelte. Da hat uns dann nur noch die Einkehr in der Sepp Huber Hütte getröstet. Schade, aber wir kommen wieder :-)
