Natterriegel via Mittagskogel

Open
Ascent from Buchauer Sattel via Grabneralm and Admonterhaus to the Mittagskogel (2041m) and on to the Natterriegel (2065m)
At the Buchauer Sattel, we first hike leisurely across the large meadow until we reach the forest, which leads us uphill partly on  path (trail 636),through the forest, until we finally reach a forest road. We follow this and below the hut the theme path "Almlehrpfad Grabnerstein" begins, the first signs can be read and admired as far as the Grabneralm.

After the Grabneralm we follow the path 636 to the Admonterhaus (1 hour walking time). From there we follow trail 634 first up the Mittagskogel. The path, partly secured with ropes, has alpine character and requires surefootedness.

The easy and short way from there to the summit of the Natterriegel should not be missed.

More information

Coming from Admont: at the Ennsbrücke roundabout, take the Altenmarkt exit and drive approx. 8 km up the Buchauer Sattel, turn left at the top of the pass, parking after 100 m

 

Coming from St. Gallen: Drive towards Admont for about 12 km on the Buchauer Sattel, turn right at the top of the pass, parking after 100 m

We start at the Buchauer Sattel and hike on a meadow path, then on a forest path and a hollow path until we meet a forest road. Soon we reach the basic border, where the area of the Grabnerhof Agricultural College begins.

From here on, at regular intervals, you will come across information boards depicting past and present alpine pasture farming. This is an entertaining way to get to the Grabneralm.

When we are already tired, hungry and thirsty from the 1 1/2 hour hike, we stop to eat in the cosy garden or in the parlour.

But then we still have an hour's climb ahead of us. A path winds its way uphill until we finally see the Admonter's house majestically enthroned in the embrasure. We have reached our first destination - we might want to spend the night here and then the next morning join the Mittagskogel and Natterriegel (easy hike) or the Hexenturm (only for sure-footed and vertigo-free or via ferrata climbers).

Combinable with Admonter Warte(15min., Grabnerstein and Jungfernsteig(1 1/2h)

For climbers the via ferrata to the Hexenturm is worthwhile(1 1/2h.)

The best thing is to staya night in one of the huts!
