The route begins at the lower station of the Schneeberg chairlift. Follow the red signs below the chairlift, to easily reach the Bürklehütte inn. The Weninger Steig path is the quicker, more direct ascent to the Bürklehütte. Food and drink are not served in this inn.

 

Right at the highest point as you head towards the Edelweisshütte inn, the path turns right towards the Rieshütte inn and on to the Nandlgrat trail. Continue to follow the blue signs between Breiter Ries and Lahningries along the high rock formations and rock faces, until the Nandlgrat trail ends.

 

Head across the alpine meadow to the Fadensteig path, and turn left towards the Fischerhütte inn.

 

After a rest in the Fischerhütte, the descent begins along the so-called Schauerstein. Follow the green signs, and then the yellow ones, to the Edelweisshütte. From there, you can take the Schneeberg chairlift down to the valley, or follow the yellow signs to the lower station.

Author’s recommendation

A wonderful, demanding ascent for mountaineers with a very good level of physical fitness and coordination.
