high-altitude hike to stoffennieder
Alpine walk in fabulous natural surroundings
When the temperature rises down in the valley, it is time to head for the mountaisn. One of our personal recommendations is the high-altitude hike to along the ridge to Stoffennieder.
The journey begins with a ride on the Zwölferkogelbahn cable car (free of charge) to 1984 m. As soon as you step out of the gondola you will feel that the air is much cooler – temperatures are on average 10°C lower than in the village. There is a small hut next to the top of the cable car serving snacks and drinks. Then it is time to begin the 45-minute walk to the Penhab. The first section, climbing 190 vertical metres, is steep, but the rest leads along the gently undulating ridge as far as Stoffennieder. Your reward for all that hard work is a magnificent panoramic view of two quiet side valleys branching off the main Glemmtal Valley.
Those wearing appropriate footwear can continue along the twisting path leading to the summit of the Manlitzkogel mountain (2247 m), from where you can see as far as the mighty glaciers of the Hohe Tauern. Including the Manlitzkogel, this hike takes around 4-5 hours there and back (approx. 3 hours to Stoffennieder and back). There are no huts on the ridge, so please remember to pack food before you set off.
Info: the Zwölferkogelbahn cable car is just 1000 metres from our hotel.
Important! Sturdy hiking boots & food are a must (no huts on the ridge).
Hiking at the Hochkogel mountain
The hike up to the top of the 2249-metre-high Hochkogel mountain is a challenge for experienced hikers. Spectacular views at the top are the reward for all that hard work.
Sunrise hike to the Tristkogel
There are few experiences like watching the sun rise from the top of a mountain. At the Rosentalerhof you have the chance to do exactly that in the company of a trained mountain guide.
