3-Summit-tour Eisenerz

Open
This great and challenging mountain tour in the ERZBERG LEOBEN region takes us to the three highest peaks of the Kaiserschild mountain range. 
We start the tour at the Gh. Gemeindealm. We follow trail 683 in the direction of the Kaiserschild. On gravel it goes comfortably along until the path branches off to the right and we reach the turnoff to the Kaiserschild. Through the deciduous forest it goes steeply uphill. We leave the forest and reach the entrance to the Bärenloch climb. The short, partly rope-secured climbing section is also suitable for beginners who are free from giddiness and sure-footed. To the right of us rises the Kaiserschild. If you want, you can do without the Kaiserschild, climb the Hochkogel and save about 1 hour. Those who take the shortcut, however, miss the view of the Erzberg. After about 3 hours we reach the Kaiserschild. Along the ridge we go in the direction of Hochkogel. After 1 hour we reach the Hochkogel summit cross. Via trail 683 we now descend in the direction of Ramsau. The path leads partly along the ridge, through mountain pines and finally through coniferous forest. After about 6 hours walking time we reach the starting point.

More information

Detailed information on how to get there can be found here.
Ascent from the parking lot Gemeindealm into the Bärenloch (forest road) to the Kaiserschild (2084m) is rope-secured - a head for heights and surefootedness are required. 1065 Hm about 3 hours walking time. Descent over the NW ridge to the striking saddle south of the Kaiserwart and further to the Hochkogel (2105m) is not to be underestimated. (Beware of falling rocks on the Kaiserschild, unsecured wall section, steep grass) Duration about 1.5 hours. The descent to the Radmerhals and the starting point at the Gemeindealm parking lot takes another 2.5 hours.

Route: parking lot Gemeindealm - Bärenloch Steig - Kaiserschild - Kaiserwarte - Hochkogel - Radmerhals and back to the starting point.

Total hiking time: about 7 hours and 1340 HM

Very long, demanding tour and requires surefootedness and fitness as well as a head for heights. Partly wire rope protections and unsecured rock steps.

At the starting point there are two good places to stop for refreshments - Gasthaus Gemeindealm and Gasthof Pichlerhof.
