From the parking possibility at the Hinterfeld farm, you first walk comfortably along the forestry road. Follow this road until you reach the signposted junction. Turn right here. After a somewhat steeper climb through the forest, you will then climb up evenly across the "Frauenfelder" to the Frauenkogel.

The summit of the Frauenkogel is probably one of the most beautiful viewpoints of Grossarl. The Hohe Tauern, the Hochkönig, the Tennengebirge and the Hagengebirge, the Dachstein - all are in the focus.The Frauenkogel stands there like a pyramid, watching over the valley. A particularly beautiful summit cross with huge white edelweiss in the middle stands on this mountain.

The descent takes place along the ascent trail. The ski tour on the Frauenkogel is particularly popular during spring, when the snow is firn. But beware: In the spring, you have to start early in the morning, that the snow is still in a good condition.

Author’s recommendation

During spring this tour is especially beautiful.

Sehr schöne Tour. Lässt sich auch mit dem Gamskarkogel kombinieren, dann wird es allerdings zur Tagestour :)

Hallo Christoph,

Schnee sollte schon noch sein :), die Tour startet auf rund 1.100 m. Außerdem ist für Mittwoch Schnee vorhergesagt, ab Donnerstag soll es wieder schön werden, aber dieses Mal kalt bleiben. Das sind die besten Voraussetzungen für eine Skitour. Bezüglich Lawinensituation informieren Sie sich bitte vor Start der Tour noch einmal http://www.lawine.salzburg.at/start.html, das ist momentan noch sehr schwer zum Vorhersagen...

Hallo Franz, danke für den Hinweis! Das ist leider im Trubel untergegangen. Ich habe jetzt die Beschreibung an die neue Wegführung angepasst.
