At the beginning we hike on this stage of the hiking route "From glacier to wine" to the valley station of the summit cable car Hochwurzen, which brings us within a few minutes with a magnificent view of the Dachstein massif on the Hochwurzen. The rest of the way leads us to a ridge, which we follow until we reach the Giglachseen lakes. The first peak that greets us is the Rossfeld at an altitude of 1,919 m above sea level. The next stop on our journey into the Tauern is the Guschen at 1,982 m above sea level, whose summit is certainly one of the most beautiful viewpoints along the tour.
The rest of the way takes us to over 2,000 meters above sea level with the peaks of the Schneider, Hochfeld (with the distinctive Hochfeldmandl) and Schiedeck before we head east past the Kampspitze and Brettersee to descend to the Ignaz Mattis Hut (Tel. 43 664 4233823) at Unterer Giglachsee. As an alternative to the Ignaz Mattis Hut, the Giglachsee Hut (tel. 43 664 9088188) is also available for overnight stays. Tip: we get tips and a weather forecast for the next few days from the hut keepers, such as for the next stage to the Keinprechthütte.
Stay overnight in Schladming or Rohrmoos in a business that is a Sommercard business. By staying overnight, you receive the Sommercard, with which you can take the ascent with the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen free of charge.
Tip: In the spring of 2018, in the course of a casting, a jury and the readers of a major Austrian daily newspaper chose Martina Traisch from the Enns Valley and Manfred Polansky from the Mürz Valley as 2 "super hikers" who hiked the north and south routes in the summer. You can read about their experiences and adventures at www.steiermark.com/superwanderer: From ideal photo spots to hidden wine cellars in mountain huts. Do you want to follow in the footsteps of Martina and Manfred and also become a "super hiker"? It's easy: Register at www.steiermark.com/superwanderer and then post your experiences, videos and comments along the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine" - regardless of whether you hike the entire route or just one section. Every 5 stages also beckons a small reward!
