Description :

I am happy to intoduce my climate friendly weekend hikes concept to the group and hope you will like it! 

Day 1
The trail is approximately 14  kilometers long and will take approximately 6 hours to complete.
Seewiesen (968m)-Voisthaler Hütte (1654 m)- Graf Meran Steig- Schiesthaus (2153m) - Hochschwab (2277 m)- Schiesthaus (2153m)

Lunch is possible in the Voisthaler Hütte, it is a modern hut, reopend just last year. Before we reach the summit we can also have a short break in the Schiestlhaus   and leave our Rucksack there. We will stay in the hut for the night. 

Day 2 

The trail for the second day  is approximately 12 kilometers long and will take approximately 6 hours to complete without breaks. I promise this is a very nice panaoramic path. 

Schiesthaus - Fleischer Biwagkschachtel (2153m)- Häuslalm (1160m) - Bodebbauer (884m)

Lunch break in Hauselalm.  Bodenbauer also offers good food, we definitely will  have time for a coffe and cake,  taxi pick up (about 16:00). 

We will need to use a taxi from Kapfenberg to Seewiesen and also back to the Railwaystation . The taxi will cost about 30 Euro per person if we are 8. If less than 8 hikers assign we need to discuss if we go for an alternative route or take the bus on Saturday. 

By signing up, you accept that the taxi fee will be required to be paid ahead as a deposit, which in case of  last minute cancelateion will not be refunded (only if you do not find anybody to replace you) You will receive further information about payment details via e-mail after signing up. The registration is first fixed once your deposit is in my account.
