Trattenkogel (1,793m)

A wonderful, long hike for people seeking time out, leading to one of the most spectacular peaks in the Murau region for views.



At its highest point, the Trattenkogel measures 1,793 m and is one of the most superb mountains in the district of Murau when it comes to views. Nestled in the valley is the small, charming town of Ranten, which is where this tour starts on the marked Hiking Trail 4 towards the summit. The route starts off still in the valley and then continues up the mountain along the signposted logging road. A footpath winds along the mountain ridge to a summit cross, located a short distance from the peak itself. From here, there's a stunning view over to Ranten and you can also enjoy a panoramic vista of the Niedere Tauern. Even though it's tempting to linger, there are only a few more minutes to go before victory. In fine weather you can take a break here, but those who prefer to keep going can stop off at the Sofie Hütte on the return leg into the valley, which is highly recommended.
For a shorter variant of the tour, you can drive up to the Sofie Hütte by car.
