Turn-by-turn directions

Starting at Hotel Feistererhof, the winding 616 trail, leads up to the Tiefkar. After around 45 minutes, you reach the charmingly rustic Lärchbodenalm. From there an alpine trail continues along the rocks of the Fischermauer before heading uphill through the green hills of the Tiefkar and to Guttenberghaus. There you can enjoy a splendid view of Ramsau am Dachstein, the Niedere and Hohe Tauern. This is now the high alpine.

Go left on the Guttenberghaus trail 618 to the Gruberscharte, through the Landfriedtal valley and up to the Edelgrießhöhe (2,489 m ). Trail 68 to Schleichenspitze is also a great option, but you need to be surefooted, for an unforgettable view at the summit. From Edelgrießhöhe, trail 618 leads Edelgrießgletscher’s snow field. Trail 672 leads down through Edelgrieß to the Türlwand. Take care: trail 673 is very steep and scree covered.
