A diverse hike in absolute tranquility, passing several historical Alpine buildings and a mountain moor near the Hintenkarscharte, as well as a waterfall near the stage finish. You can't fail to spot the Alpine roses above the Scheibenschlag Alpine pasture. With dream views of the surrounding mountains, the giant icy peaks of the Hohe Tauern, and the striking peaks of the Großer Rettenstein right in front of you. The routes are mostly not too difficult, only the area on either side of the Hintenkarscharte is classified as medium difficulty. Due to the length of around 19 kilometers, you should have some stamina
