The Sonnenhof tour makes it possible to discover the winter landscape peacefully and offers one of the most beautiful views of the town centre including the parish church of Lackenhof. Once you reach the top, the more comfortable Mandlboden winter hiking trail follows, where you come directly to the rustic Mandlboden hut, with a magnificent view of the Gr. & Kl. Ötscher. From there it goes via the forest chapel back to the village.

Length: 3.6 km
