This tour can be done as a round trip from the parking lot of the Schneeberg chairlift and offers a great view of the valley from the Edelweiß hut. Rent snowshoes at the lower station and climb Schneeberg up to the Fadensattel. After some food and drink at the Edelweiß hut, enjoy the panorama at the end of the tour on the descent with the chairlift.

Your hiking experience in the Vienna Alps should be a thoroughly enjoyable and safe one. Therefore, please bear the following in mind: Preparation: When choosing a route, make sure it corresponds to your experience and physical fitness level. Check the weather forecast before you set off. The weather can change surprisingly quickly in the mountains. Always take appropriate equipment with you (e.g. rain protection).

Check whether the cabins and snack stations you intend to visit along the way are open. Inform someone before you set off of your chosen route and when you plan to return.
