Preber summit tour

Open
The Preber summit is a rewarding and very popular tour destination for young and old. It can be hiked from the Styrian side but also from the Salzburger side.
However, the ascent from the Klausnerberg saw to the Grazer Hütte and over the Trogleiteck and the Bockleiteneck to the summit is particularly beautiful. Over the ridge, the tour leads from the hut in 2 hours (850 HM) to the summit. Once at the top, all efforts are rewarded by the fabulous panoramic view!
