alpannonia stage Semmering - Hochwechsel

Open
alpannonia is a 100 - 120 km long (depending on the variant chosen) long, continuously marked and signposted high-altitude and panoramic trail. Numerous feeder stations along the entire route make it easier to get started and also enable individual day tours. The entire route leads in five to six daily stages, initially from the alpine area of ​​Peter Rosegger's forest home or from Semmering through the East Styrian Joglland to the Hochwechsel. We continue into the wooded low mountain ranges of the Buckligen Welt as well as the Bernstein and Günser Mountains to the vineyards near Köszeg. Stage 1: Semmering - Hochwechsel Length: 19.5 km Rising time: 6 hours
 

 

The remaining stage of a cross-border hiking trail system between Semmering, Fischbach and Köszeg, consisting of a main trail of around 120 km and several feeder trails from the towns at the foot of the mountain groups, which are also often used as circular trails. Thanks to additional equipment at various sections and points and the integration of existing attractions, you can expect an exciting hiking experience.

More information

From Vienna via the A2 southern motorway and the S6 Semmering expressway to the Semmering exit. Now continue to the marked parking lot at the Zauberberg/cable car valley station. From Graz, Linz and Salzburg/Germany via the Pyhrnautobahn A9 and the Semmeringschnellstrasse S6 to the Spital am Semmering exit. Now take the main road up to the Semmering pass. Continue as above.
The starting signal for the alpannonia® long-distance hiking trail at Semmering begins in an alpine, yet leisurely manner. With the Zauberberg gondola you can overcome the first 300 meters in altitude in an enjoyable way. When you arrive at the summit of the Hirschenkogel, you can immediately enjoy a top-class mountain panorama - even better from the observation tower built right next to the mountain station of the gondola. The Hirschenkogel and the observation tower can of course also be reached via an easily accessible hiking trail from Semmering without using the gondola. The following stage runs up and down to the Feistritzsattel over alpine meadows and through forests, always with beautiful close-up views of Stuhleck, Hochwechsel and the Styrian - Lower Austrian limestone Alps. After the Feistritzsattel you reach the 1,743 m high Hochwechsel with the Wetterkoglerhaus, our first stage end point, over gently rising alpine pastures (so-called “Schwaigen”).
