Over the crest of the Freienstein a hike full of surprises opens up for us. Not many would expect this inconspicuous forest mountain to have a very attractive high trail running over its long, still forested ridge. Among other things, we cross a beautiful forest clearing with many flowers and tall grasses before we march between pines up to the summit. There a dreamlike place with deep views to both sides awaits us. But also the Schladminger Tauern and the Stoderzinken are photogenic in our field of vision.
Open your eyes and be enchanted by some of the tree formations that remind you of the Harry Potter novels and movies.
Safety on the mountainside: changes in the weather, sudden fall in temperature, thunder storms, wind, fog and snow fields are all objective dangers and require the correct behaviour whilst underway. the landlords of the huts are all very knowledgeable about the mountains and can give you good tips about the weather and the routes. Insufficient equipment, exaggerated opinion of ones capabilities, frivolousness, poor health condition and a false evaluation of the situation can lead to a critical situation. In thunder storms: summits, crest-sites and safety rope aids are to be avoided.
