More information

Starting from the Laussabaueralm mountain hostel, you follow the signposts marked ‘Klosterweg’. Once you have crossed the Karbach stream, you enter some woodlands where you climb over a fence stile. Heading left, you follow the forest road in a downstream direction. At the first crossroads, keep right and continue along the forest road. At the Sindlalm cabin bear left, and keep following the road. A bridge will take you over the Laussabach stream. Next, you reach the Hengstpass Road, which you follow for around 1 kilometre, walking in a downstream direction. At the Oberzwiesel car park (located just before the Sagwirt inn, in the hamlet of Oberlaussa) you turn right onto hiking trail no. 633 (towards the ‘Pölztal’ valley). You now find yourself on a gently ascending forest road that runs parallel to the Pölzalmbach stream, leading past several hunters’ cabins and alpine huts. Near the Menggalm pasture, you turn off onto a path which – crossing the forest road several times along the way – takes you to the Klapfboden pasture (997m). From there, the route gets steeper and you will have to navigate a step in the terrain before reaching the Kleiner Seeboden, a slightly wooded alpine pasture. Soon afterwards, the Grosser Seeboden comes into view – an impressive valley basin which you reach after a brief descent. Next, you walk along the even valley floor in a south-westerly direction, before embarking on the ascent to the Admonter Haus mountain hostel. From Admonter Haus, the route once again descends towards the valley: a two-and-a-half-hour hike takes you across alpine pastures, through a woodland area and past the ‘Johannesbründl’ spring, until you reach the villages of Hall and Admont. Even after a taxing trekking day, we highly recommend a visit to the world-famous Admont Abbey (which also houses the National Park exhibition project ‘A Passion for Nature’).
