From Russbach you can reach wonderful alpine pastures in a relatively short time. The circular route takes you first to the Traunwandalm, then via the Angerkaralm to the Rinnbergalm. On the way you will learn all sorts of interesting things about life on the alpine pasture. The management of the pastures was once a hard and deprived work. We should imagine them less romantic and relaxing than today may seem to arouse the appearance. In addition to the supervision of the cattle, the cultivation of butter-malt, scotch and cheese was the focus of the farms.Fortunately, cheese production on the pastures has recently undergone a renaissance in the course of tourism and all hikers are well advised to try it.

Author’s recommendation

The alpine huts are open from the end of June to September and the dairy farmers serve excellent, homemade cheese specialties.

Turn-by-turn directions

Magnificent mountain tour to the top of the highest peak in the Osterhorn Group, generally through steep and unforested terrain. First follow path No. 34 out to the Traunwandalm (1330 m). Now left past the mountainhut on the far right, climbing through an area of mountain pine to a large, rocky cirque (Traunerkar). The path takes you left across a steep mountainside to a ridgeline, fromwhere it is not much further to the summit of the Gamsfeld (2028 m). Glorious views of the Dachstein, the Salzkammergut lakes and the Grossglockner. Hike down to the south-west, initially across a steep grassy hillside, then a little easier, bringing you to the Angerkaralm. Now hike down to Russbach using path 32a (ca. 1 hr.). You can also continue your hike via a forestry road to the Rinnbergalm (path No. 34), hiking from there back down to the valley (ca. 1 1/2 hrs.).

Du hast die App nicht verstanden. Es geht nicht darum, wie schnell du die Tour gehst, sondern in welcher Zeit sie durchschnittlich zu bewältigen ist. Die Tour dauert zwischen 5 und 7 Stunden (Ich habe 3 1/2 gebraucht, bin aber 23 und Sportler, war ausgeruht und das Wetter war nicht heiß und nicht kalt etc.) Der Ausblick vom Gamsfeld ist sehr schön, aber vom Naturerlebnis etwa im Vergleich mit der Hochalmspitze oder der Dachstein Südwand solala also 3 Sterne. Die Schwierigkeit liegt bei 0. Eine Passage ist steil aber diese ist relativ kurz. Bei einer durchschnittlichen Zeit von 5 Stunden sind die Anforderungen an die Kondition bei höchstens 2 v.a. weil sich der Abstieg leicht und von den Wegen sehr angenehm und kräfteschonend gestaltet. Schön, dass dir die Tour gefallen hat, aber deine Beschreibung und Beurteilung sind wertlos.

Wie soll sich das bei den Höhenmetern und der Entfernung ausgehen? Ist das nur Angeberei, oder sind die Daten falsch?
