Date :

Type of event :
Hike, 2 days
Organized by :
Kristin Zimmermann
Description :

*new date (because of bad weather on the original date)*

Friday: We drive to Gasthof Bodenbauer (1:45 h from Vienna). Sunset is around 7, which means leaving from Vienna latest at 10 am. From Bodenbauer (884 m) we go up via Trawiesalm (1234 m) - G`hacktbrunn (1785 m) - G`hacktes - Fleischer-Biwakschachtel (2153 m) - Hochschwab (2277 m). In total it is roughly 1.400 m up. The ‘G`hacktes’ is an easy Ferrata (A/B level) with fixed ropes and a steel ladder.

Overnight we stay at  Schiestelhaus, 2156 m – a very modern alpine hut that is just below the peak. We have ‘Lagerplätze’, which means that you have to bring a ‘Hüttenschlafsack’ (if you don’t yet have one you can buy it at the Alpenverein Shops, in sport shops, and usually the huts also sell them).

Saturday: The way down is via Hundsböden – Rauchtalsattel and Häuselalm back to Bodenbauer.
