The Madereck, one of Bruck's three local mountains (as well as the Rennfeld and the Hochanger) is considered the most popular hiking mountain, because it is easy to reach and has an inviting alpine guesthouse.

Continuing in a westerly direction along the marked path and with a beautiful view of the Mur valley and the mountains opposite (Rosseck, Mugel), we reach the Almgasthaus Puster.
Behind the inn, a path leads us across a meadow and through sparse high forest to the inconspicuous summit of the Madereck (summit cross).
Back at the Almgasthaus, after an extensive rest, we return through the Urgental valley to Bruck an der Mur. The city is reached in the area of the so-called Paulahofsiedlung, keeping left we come back to the city center.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
