Tour, Hiking Hard

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

A very long hike from the Frauenalpe to the Kreischberg, boasting outstanding views on alpine meadows and hiking trails, and particularly suitable for hikers with plenty of stamina.



This day hike requires some planning and is best started early in the day. Start your trip from the Murauerhütte (mountain hut) on the Frauenalpe, where you can park your car or get a lift. As the hike ends in a different town, please consider that your car will have to be picked up at a later time.The route passes through mostly tree-less terrain and has some wonderful panoramic views, but there is nowhere to stop for refreshment on the way, so please remember to pack enough provisions. There are serviced mountain huts on the Frauenalpe and the Kreischberg, but in between there is often hardly a soul to be seen. Having reached the first summit, you will go on to conquer a total of eight summits on a route that runs gently up and down. In clear weather, there is a wonderful panorama up to the Schladminger and Wölzer Tauern, the Wintertaler Nock and the Eisenhut. Once at Kreischberg, it is possible to ride down into the valley on the gondola lift (4pm at the latest, ONLY on opening days).
