The double peaked Voralpe is striking because of its two main peaks, the wide Tanzboden (1727m) on the Lower Austrian-Styrian border and the steep Stumpfmauer (1770m) on the border of Lower and Upper Austria and because of the "Dreiländereck" (border triangle).

A mountain hike of medium difficulty and demanding physical condition, initially on forest roads then on paths and trails. Sure-footedness and no fear of heights are necessary! Fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.
Walking time: Ascent Tanzboden 3 - 3.5 hours, Tanzboden - Stumpfmauer (Kopetzkysteig) 45 minutes - 1 hour, Stumpfmauer - Tanzboden (Hugo-Zettl-Steig) 45 minutes.

South of Altenmarkt, turn off at the GF (Georg Fischer) factory entrance.
Staying on the forest road to the left, there is a nice parking lot at the Moaralm signposted.
Continue over the alpine meadow and up the steep mountain ridge in a wide right turn. Through a short belt of forest you reach the mountain meadows below the summit ridge with a fork in the path.
Now either cross the mountain ridge to the south on the "Almweg" and below the crest, finally through a hollow to the summit.
Or on the "Kammweg" directly to the east through mountain pines and over slight rugged terrain to the summit cross at the Tanzboden. From the summit, the "Kopetzkysteig" leads steeply down into a dip and one follows the crest, which goes northwards, to the "Lucken", an insured slip through, where the route turns off to the right. Further wire ropes now lead up a graveled path to the summit cross of the Stumpfmauer. From here the "Hugo-Zettl-Steig" leads down to the Schneegrube and in a left turn back to the "Lucken" and the Tanzboden summit. Descent along the same route back to the starting point.
