From Murau over the Stolzalpe to St. Peter am Kammersberg

A popular route with views of the eastern 3,000ers of the Hohen Tauern mountain range; some planning is required in order to get back to the starting point.



This hike over the Stolzalpe is very popular among many locals, either starting out from Murau to St. Peter or vice versa. This route is also part of the long-distance hiking network "Vom Gletscher zum Wein ‒ From Glacier To Wine" (in the opposite direction), which runs throughout the whole of Styria, as well as the Hemma Pilgrim's Trail. Every June, on what is known as Stolzalpl-Sonntag, hikers and pilgrims set off from both towns (Murau and St. Peter) to conquer the summit of the Stolzalpe and celebrate a mass at an altitude of 1,800m, complete with musical accompaniment. This tradition exists at some peaks in the region; it is a vibrant Styrian custom and certainly a unique opportunity for visitors to be part of this extraordinary day.

From the summit of the Stolzalpe, begin the descent to St. Peter am Kammersberg. Plan your return from St. Peter to Murau in advance: either by public transport or taxi.
