Description: Please note that you will climb approx. 1,900 meters in altitude on this hike. It is therefore advisable to spend the night in the Prielschutzhaus.
High alpine and scenic tour to the highest peak of the Tote Gebirge with 2,515m.
The bright red summit cross is visible from afar from the valley and exudes a great attraction to mountaineers. On rocky and steep paths you will enter the surprisingly lively world of the "Dead Mountains" and look far over the Stoder Valley.
The trail requires surefootedness and a head for heights.Beware of snow and fog! Due to its length, we recommend an overnight stay in the Prielschutzhaus.
