St. Lorenzen - Frauenalpe (1,997m)

This easy yet long hike runs from the world championship host town of St. Lorenzen am Kreischberg to the summit of the Frauenalpe with its superb views.


Starting at the Kreischberg Tourist Information Office, we follow the signposting into the Lorenzergraben, where the valley becomes relatively narrow. The ascent continues towards the Frauenalpe, passing a number of farmsteads, up to the Grazerhütte (mountain hut, not serviced). The alpine landscape also becomes broader and more sprawling here. The route slowly becomes more wooded; we leave the logging road and set off on a footpath through the forest towards the peak until we reach the tree line. A spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountains awaits you here. In fine weather, you can even see the neighbouring states of Carinthia on one side and Salzburg on the other. The summit is now in sight.

A heavy storm severely damaged the summit cross in December 2017, but the Alpine Association had a replacement erected shortly before Christmas.
