Eisenerzer Reichenstein starting at Präbichl

This hike is located in ERZBERG LEOBEN and may be combined with the bike tour from Leoben to Präbichl
The tour offers a very scenic ascent along the well-known Nord-Süd Weitwanderweg, a magnificent view of the Erzberg and Eisenerz as well as the Vordernberger Valley.

From the inn Präbichlerhof through the Grübl (3 steep steps) to the Rösselhals. Now you change to the Eisenerz side and cross a steep grassy slope. Soon you reach a fork in the path. Follow the path until you are below the rocks, from here the path leads up a few metres to a rocky head, secured by ladders. You reach the summit via several hairpin bends (only for sure-footed mountain hikers).

ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

From the junction, take the right-hand path and avoid the rocky upturn. You reach the summit via several hairpin bends. The tour to the Eisenerzer Reichenstein from the Präbichl offers wonderful views and a challenging mountain experience.

More information

From the Präbichler Hof along the marked trail through the Grübl upwards and over several steep steps to the Rösselhals (1770m), here in a southerly direction over the upward leading scree ridge to the so-called "Stiege" (iron staircase leading over a rocky steep step). The Stiege can also be bypassed via the trail branching off below the rock walls. After joining the two trails, the path leads upwards over the rugged northern slope, finally keeping to the left to the summit of the Reichenstein.Descent: From the summit downwards to the nearby Reichensteinhütte and continue as ascent
This tour can be perfectly combined with the bike tour "From Leoben to Präbichl".
