Tour information

Start this tour at the Hoffstattbahn lift parking area in Kelchsau and walk along the main road through the village, passing several old farmhouses, until you get to the bridge Steinerbrücke. Turn left and after the bridge right and continue your walk passing the farmsteads Vorderstein and Hinterstein. The tour goes on along a forest path to the farmstead Oberurschlerhof and further on to Hinterer Demmelshüttenalm and Vorderer Demmelshüttenalm. Keep right at the junction to the mountain hut and walk in the direction of Lodronalm. At the information board Untere Lodronalm, turn left in the direction of Hintere – and Vordere Ölbankalm. Shortly after, you get to the hiking trail orientation board “Altastbühel” where a path turns off to the left, leading you across alpine pastures and through forests to Kochertradlaste. Carry on along the road to the farmstead Wieshäusl. There, turn right before the bridge and walk to the second bridge, the Lichtenauerbrücke. Keeping to the left you get back to your starting point, the parking area of the Hoffstattbahn lift.

There are no refreshment stops along the way, so we recommend that you take enough food and drink with you.
