Admont

Blueberry Sea

Bent bodies, blue-colored teeth, smacking noises - whatever makes you get carried away on Halloween invites you to join in on the way to the Wagenbänkalm.

The huge blueberry fields on the Lahngangkogel have already brought many hiking groups to a standstill. In front of the impressive backdrop of the Admonter Kaibling repeated stopping is all the easier. If it weren't for the cozy sunny spot that awaits you on the Wagenbänkalm, the nibbling could go on forever.

Walk in the mountains

Since the Klinkehütte is one of the few Gesäuse huts that can be reached via a toll road, the 1484-meter-high mountain world is also accessible to more moderate hikers. An excursion to the Wagenbänkalm is therefore just the right thing for those who want to experience the full mountain panorama but not the full ascent. The alp can be reached via a circular path. While on the way there, the 300 meters of altitude difference of the Langangkogel have to be mastered, the way back meanders almost level along the foot of the mountain.

Dreamworks presents

Arriving at the Wagenbänkalm is like stopping time. The two rustic huts seem to be from a bygone era. Here you can take a deep breath and just be. With a sumptuous snack of Styrian cheese and bacon, you can postpone the way back a little longer. The warm hospitality contributes its part to this. But at the latest when the alpine farmer "Her-do! Her-do!" and the cows trot past the hut towards their night quarters, it is time for the hikers to start their way back. Back to the valley, to the place where you will dream yourself up to this beautiful alpine pasture for a long time.
