Grandiose panoramic view of the Postalm, the Hoher Dachstein with Gosaukamm mountains, as well as the Tennengebirge mountains and the beautiful Salzkammergut.

Author’s recommendation

After the hike, stop at the Rettenegg hut (1222m) with genuine alpine pasture products and delicious pastries.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the eastern side, the hiking trail (878) first leads across the alpine pasture and then into the forest path. The trail goes steadily uphill. In between, the trail passes the rocks of the "Scharfen". After about 1 ¼ hours of walking, you come to the junction "Braunedel" + "Scharfen". At this point, depending on the snow conditions, snow can be found in winter until the middle of July.  Now continue above the tree line on a path surrounded by mountain pines. The hike continues for about 30 minutes to the summit of the Braunedel.

Another path leads over the Moosbergsattel up to the Braunedel. Duration: approx. 2 h.
