A wonderful winter walk to the valley station of the Schneeberg chairlift.
Distance 13.5 km

The walk starts from Puchberg opposite the Hotel Schneeberghof in the direction of the waterfall and goes along the red-marked trail and before the waterfall the yellow-marked trail in the direction of Losenheim. Your taste buds will be spoilt in ‘InsLift’ at the valley station.

You can either return to the centre by bus or you walk to Schneebergdörfl via the Lehrweg and after to Puchberg.

Author’s recommendation

A wonderful walk where you are always ‘in view’ of Schneeberg as you approach it.
