Take the bus to the gondola station Pengelstein 1. The hike actually begins here, following the road, Krinweg, to the mountain restaurants. After around 1.5 hours, you reach the junction for Berggasthof Maierl-Alm and Bergschenke. From this point it is only 20 minutes to the two restaurants. From the junction Maierl-Alm-Bergschenke it’s approx. 30 minutes to the Ochsalm.
