Mit dem Bus zum Berg - Überschreitung der Hohen Scheibe

Open
A technically easy, panoramic and not too long tour from the Semmering Railway World Heritage Site to the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park. An enjoyable hike in the northeast of Styria with variants to Mürzzuschlag as well as to the Preiner Gscheid and thus to the Rax.
The route often leads through forests, across meadows and alpine pastures from Spital am Semmering to Kapellen. Access or descent variants to Mürzzuschlag or to the Preiner Gscheid are possible, on weekends a cozy little refuge awaits thirsty hikers on the Hohe Scheibe.

More information

From Spital am Semmering / train station we go over the Zatzkavillen and past the Räuberhöhlen first in the direction of "Saurücken". Passing the Franziskaquelle (wonderful panoramic resting place), we reach the Kampalpe (summit cross slightly east of the highest point) via a climb that is quite steep at the end.

Our path now continues in a westerly direction to the Drahtekogel (here the path from the Preiner Gscheid is added) and, always in a slight up and down, to the Hohe Scheibe (small refuge, summit cross, descent to Mürzzuschlag possible). Still continuing in a westerly direction, we now descend through extensive forests and via forest paths to the so-called Windlöcher (wind holes) and the Bleiweissgrube (cave, visit possible).

Finally we pass the Plodererkreuz (magnificent viewpoint) and our tour ends in Kapellen (at the former Jausenstation train station).

In the upper Mürztal there are several interesting sights such as the Neuberg Abbey, the glassblowing workshop in the Kaiserhof, the Neuberg Nature Museum with the Schliefsteiner collection or the world's largest spinning wheel in Kapellen. Also the new climate change trail 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.
