Steinerhaus - Stoderzinken

Turn-by-turn directions

We start the fourth day with a small ascent to the Feisterscharte. Then we follow trail 618 over the northern slope of Sinabell in an easterly direction past rocks, mountain pines and gorges. After about three to four hours we arrive at the Grafenbergalm, where we slowly hike back into the forest from the high alpine area of the tour. After the barren rocky landscape we find meadows and forests again as a contrast. We are here in a large hiking area and accordingly there are many different hiking trails, so we have to take care that we stay on our way with the No. 618 towards the west. Here there is another beautiful view point back to the glacier. We walk through a dense forest and on a serpentine road past the Brunnerhütte, up to our destination - the Steinerhaus

Eine wunderschöne, sehr empfehlenswerte Tour aber leider falsch beschrieben!!! Es heißt in der Wegbeschreibung: " ... deshalb müssen wir hier genau darauf achten, dass wir auf unserem Weg mit der Nr. 618 Richtung Westen....." Wer beim Guttenberghaus startet und ab der Grafenbergalm Richtung Westen geht kommt zurück zum Guttenberghaus. Also bitte unbedingt dem Weg Nr. 618 nach Osten folgen!

Es war leider ein Regentag. Der Weg vom Guttenberghaus ist schön und gut angelegt, aber zu Mittag kam der Regen und wir mussten 4 Stunden bis zur Brünnerhütte, da die Grafenbergalm abgesperrt war. Leider war das Steinerhaus geschlossen - obwohl die Tafel vor dem Gasthaus eine Öffnung bis 17 Uhr versprach - es wurde uns trotz Vorreservierung der Übernachtung nicht geöffnet. Im Nachhinein wurde erklärt, wir hätten die Reservierung nicht bestätigt. Daher: Unbedingt eine Reservierung fixieren, sonst steht man dort nach einer anstrengenden Etappe auf der Straße und hat die16 km nach Gröbming noch vor sich! Empfehlung in Gröbming: Sporthotel Dirninger, sehr hilfsbereite und freundliche Leute, gutes Essen und ein Trockenraum!!
