Interactive elevation profile
Back to civilization: Over the Haller Walls to Admont with the famous Admont Abbey.
From the Laussabaueralm you follow the signs “Klosterweg”, cross eastwards the Karbach, you get into the forest and cross a game fence. Then keep left and follow the forest road down the stream. At the next crossroads keep right and follow the forest road to Simandlalm, where you continue on the forest road to the left. The Laussabach is crossed over a bridge and the Hengstpass road is reached. Follow this about a kilometer to the right down the stream and before the Gasthof Sagwirt (Oberzwiesel car park, 691m, Oberlaussa) turn right into the Pölztal (path no. 633). You follow the gently ascending forest road and the Pölzalmbach upwards. Some hunting and alpine pastures are passed.
In the Menggalm area, branch off onto a steep path that crosses the forest road several times to Klapfboden (997m). From there the path becomes steeper and there is a step up to the Kleiner Seeboden to overcome. The Großer Seeboden, an impressive valley basin, quickly comes into view. A short descent, then you hike through the flat valley floor in a south-westerly direction before you tackle the last section of the path uphill to the Admonter Haus.
At the Admonter Haus you take the path down to Hall (2.5 hours). The path leads through alpine pastures into a very natural forest. Passing the Johannesbründl, Hall and Admont can be reached quickly.
In Admont, however, you shouldn't even think about putting your feet up completely, because a visit to the famous Admont Abbey with its small national park exhibition “The passion of researchers” is highly recommended.
Sturdy mountain boots or good trekking shoes, as well as a hiking backpack with appropriate content (water bottle, blister plaster, hiking map, snack, etc.). You should also be well prepared for a change in weather. Don't forget your sleeping bag for the night in the huts!
