8-peak hike: from the Frauenalpe to the Kreischberg (2,171m)

A long hike from Kreischberg to the Frauenalpe, offering superb views on alpine meadows and paths, making a wonderful tour for endurance hikers.



This hike is only recommended for experienced hikers, as it requires plenty of stamina and good planning. However, your efforts are duly rewarded with eight consecutive peaks and a glorious panoramic view. Walking from Kreischberg to the Frauenalpe, you can enjoy the peace of the mountains and idyllic vistas along the entire route. You will meet very few people, if any. Please pack enough food and, above all, ample water for this long tour, as there is nowhere to stop for refreshments on the way. You can start this tour by cable car, completing the first section by gondola lift, or from the Rieglerhütte (you can drive up the access road on opening days) and start your hike at the tree line. After reaching the first peak on the Kreischberg, the route leads gently up and down along the ridge to the Frauenalpe. We advise arranging pick-up from the Murauerhütte, or parking your car there in advance.
