Eisenerzer Reichenstein from the Präbichl

Open
Wonderful mountain hike in the adventure and sports region ERZBERG LEOBEN.
A very scenic climb along the well-known north-south long-distance hiking trail, with magnificent views of the Erzberg and Eisenerz mountains and the Vordernberger Valley.

High above the pass of the Präbichl, the Hochschwab, the Eisenerz Alps, the Gesäuseberge and large parts of the Niedere Tauern lie at the feet of the mountain hiker.

From the inn "Präbichlerhof" through the Grübl (3 steep steps) to the Rösselhals. There you change to the Eisenerz side and cross a steep grassy slope. Soon you reach a fork in the road. Follow the path until you reach the rocks, from here the path leads up a few meters on a rocky head, secured by ladders. Over several hairpin bends you reach the summit (only for sure-footed mountain hikers).

ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

From the junction, take the right path and thus bypass the rocky upswing. Over several hairpin bends you reach the summit. The tour to the Eisenerzer Reichenstein from the Präbichl, offers wonderful views and a challenging mountain pleasure.
