Ridge hike Prankerhöhe (2,166m) over the Kreischberg

A refreshing hike in the Gurktaler Alpen, guaranteeing rest and relaxation, is to be found south of the Kreischberg ski resort.



Leisure hikers will love the fact that many summits can be conquered in a route that features easy ascents and descents. A stunning ridge hike starting from the Kreischberg is particularly recommended during alpenrose season, when the blossoms are out. The route runs along the ridge, where we can enjoy not only the views but also blooming meadows of alpenrose (from about mid/end June). On this hike, you just want to keep going. Complete the first, steep part of the ascent in comfort on the Kreischberg gondola lift (please note the opening times), and start your hike at the tree line. Delight in the glorious local alpine flora, marvel at the breathtaking panoramic views of the Tauern and the Nockberge, and of course experience the relaxing atmosphere of the down-to-earth mountain huts and guest houses.
