2-hour leisurely hike to the Schwarzachalm snack station and back again.

From the Gasthof Kühle Rast you slowly climb uphill through a narrow forest belt.

It takes about an hour to hike along the Schwarzach in the narrow, romantic valley.

Along the way you will find display boards with local animals (chamois, eagles, marmots, etc.)

At 1,400 m, the Schwarzachalm snack station beckons you to stop off.

Then we return on the same route.
