Mit dem Bus zum Berg - Schneealmüberschreitung

Open
A classic mountain hike over the Schneealmstock in the heart of the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park. One of the most beautiful alpine pasture areas in Styria. The hike is also a part of the High Styrian BergZeitReise as well as the Styria-wide tour "from glacier to wine".
From Altenberg an der Rax (Erlebnisweg Klimawandeln, Montanrundweg, Bergwerksmuseum) over the Almgraben easily to the high plateau of the Schneealm. There enjoyable on wide paths to the alpine pasture area and, somewhat steeper downhill, back to the Mürztal to Neuberg an der Mürz (Neuberger Münster, Kaiserhof glass manufactory, nature museum, numerous inns).

More information

From Altenberg an der Rax first over the Almgraben (variant Blarergrabenanstieg very steep!) to the plateau of Schneealm. Now either a short, recommendable detour to the organic dairy at the Lurgbauer or immediately keeping right to the Windberg summit and then across the plateau (Schneealpenhaus and Michlbauerhütte) to descend to Neuberg an der Mürz. Farfelabsteig at the beginning somewhat rocky and steep!
In the upper Mürztal there are several interesting sights such as the Neuberg Abbey, the glassblowing workshop in the Kaiserhof, the Urani leisure pond, the Neuberg Nature Museum with the Schliefsteiner - collection or the world's largest spinning wheel in Kapellen. Also the new climate change path in Altenberg / Rax, the waterfall to the Dead Woman at Mürzsteg / Frein or the show tunnel at Mürzufer / Krampen are highly recommended as excursion destinations. The Roßlochklamm near Frein is especially suitable for families.
