Auf die Hohe Veitsch

Open
This popular hike from the Brunnalm to the Hohe Veitsch leads us on a moderately difficult path. Wonderful panoramic views are included on this hike!
From the Brunnalm (Alpengasthof Scheikl) we go up the Sonnkogel. Here we follow the path with the marking number 465 to the Graf Meran-Haus. Another short stretch and we reach the summit cross of the Hohe Veitsch. We hike back the same way.

- Descent via the Teufelssteig to the Rotsohl-Alm and further to the parking lot Brunnalm.

- Hike over the plateau and descent over the Goassteig to the parking lot Brunnalm

- Hike over the plateau to the Kleinveitsch hut and descent over the Steinbachgraben

More information

S6 Semmering expressway, exit Mitterdorf. At the traffic circle exit Veitsch. Now follow the road into the Veitsch valley to the Brunnalm.
The starting point of our hike is the parking lot at the Brunnalm. We hike past the valley station of the lift and then cross the lift line to the forest road. Now we continue to the fork, where we turn left past the Scheikl alpine inn to the signpost Graf Meran-Haus - Hohe Veitsch. We follow the marking - the ski slope uphill - to the top station of the Sonnkogel lift. We continue on trail 465, which leads us in serpentines directly to the Graf Meran-Haus. From here it is not far for us to the summit of the Hohe Veitsch - in about 30 minutes we reach it. From the parking lot to the summit cross we need about 2:15h.
