Title :
Classic Goose Hike - Knofeleben
Date :
Sun 06.11.2022
Type of event :
Hike, 1 day
Organized by :
Roger Starkie
Description :

The classic ACV goose hike, with a goose late lunch at the wonderful Knofeleben hut on the southern side of the Schneeberg.

The rough plan would be to start from Kaiserbrunn, walking up to (and initially past) the Knofeleben to the Krummbachstein, then returning to the Knofeleben for our goose lunch (or other lunch for anyone who prefers something else from their excellent menu), then finally descending to the station at Payerbach Reichenau, to return home by train.

The plan may change depending on the weather forecast.

As we need to pre-order the goose, please state in the "notes" during registration whether or not you want the goose for lunch. I reserve the right to request a deposit for this hike, for those who reserve the goose.
