We will meet at Spittelau at 8am and go by car to Plavecky Mikulas in Slovakia, cca 1h 45min drive. From there we will hike 16km on the crest of Male Karpaty to another village Solosnica. The hike is cca 6hr walk up and down so get ready for a bit of a rollercoaster. From Solosnica, where we can stop for some refreshments, we take a public bus back to the cars.
