From Murau over the Stolzalpe to St. Peter am Kammersberg

Open
A popular route with views of the eastern 3,000ers of the Hohen Tauern mountain range; some planning is required in order to get back to the starting point.

This hike over the Stolzalpe is very popular among many locals, either starting out from Murau to St. Peter or vice versa. This route is also part of the long-distance hiking network "Vom Gletscher zum Wein ‒ From Glacier To Wine" (in the opposite direction), which runs throughout the whole of Styria, as well as the Hemma Pilgrim's Trail. Every June, on what is known as Stolzalpl-Sonntag, hikers and pilgrims set off from both towns (Murau and St. Peter) to conquer the summit of the Stolzalpe and celebrate a mass at an altitude of 1,800m, complete with musical accompaniment. This tradition exists at some peaks in the region; it is a vibrant Styrian custom and certainly a unique opportunity for visitors to be part of this extraordinary day.

From the summit of the Stolzalpe, begin the descent to St. Peter am Kammersberg. Plan your return from St. Peter to Murau in advance: either by public transport or taxi.

More information

From the WM-Halle Murau (a world championship venue), we walk approx. 100m west to the pedestrian lights, where we cross the state road. Past the access road to the supermarket Billa, we turn right. After 50m or so, follow the signposts for the Stolzalpe. In the section from 1,060m to the church, you must walk along the road a couple of times. Walk along  the beautifully designed steps to the state hospital/Haus II (1,296m) and then take the gravel road up to the Fernerhütte (mountain hut, not serviced, 1,445m). The route now alternates several times between logging road and forest path. The final short, steep section takes us to the chapel (1,810m), where there is a summit register and stamp. You can access the summit with its summit cross in approx. five minutes after two small counter ascents  (1,817m). Follow the marked descent 909/938 to St. Peter am Kammersberg (830m).
The summit register is not located at the summit cross, but in the chapel a five-minute walk below the summit.
