Brandstätterkogel

The Brandstätterkogel is a 2000m peak that (almost) anyone can climb. This special mountain is not only characterized by its easy accessibility, but also by the stunning view of the idyllic Ingeringtal valley in the Murtal adventure region.
The tour starts just before the Ingeringsee, which can be reached from Knittelfeld via the Gaal in around 30 minutes. From the P4 car park, you set off in the direction of several peaks - including the path to the Hochreichart, its large neighbour. For the slightly more than five kilometres and 1,000 metres in altitude, you are rewarded with wonderful views of the Großer Ringkogel, the Pletzen and the Kesseleck. The plaque on the summit cross is remarkable: Peter Grillitsch from Zeltweg has climbed the Brandstätterkogel no less than 1,000 times in 20 years and has been immortalised on the summit cross. In 4,000 hours of walking, he gained over a million metres in altitude - incredible! With this outstanding achievement, Grillitsch even made it into the "Guinness Book of Records"!  The Brandstätterkogel can be hiked by pretty much anyone - you won't find any exposed sections or even climbing passages on this tour - but a little fitness is certainly advisable for the five-hour tour.
