Destination

Kanzelbahn - Bergstation

Turn-by-turn directions

SStarting from the Kanzelbahn mountain station, follow the signs (path no. 31) after a few meters, passing a reservoir in the direction of the Steinwenderhütte. The wide forest path leads to the Steinwenderhütte without any notable differences in altitude and is also suitable for families with prams.

From the Steinwenderhütte the further path (path no. 177) leads over a picturesque alpine meadow, ascending into the surrounding forests before the panoramic Schlossbauer Alm den view of the Villach - framed by the mountain ranges to the south such as the Karawanken and the Julian Alps. Alternatively, if you want, you can also climb up from the Steinwenderhütte to the "Steinernen Tisch" - once a resting place for hunters, forest workers and keepers - and then hike to the Schlossbauer Alm.

After the Schlossbauer Alm you cross another pasture - the Baumgartner Alm - which is used by cows in summer is besieged. A few minutes later you reach the Kammerhütte. Follow the road under the Kammerhütte slightly descending in the direction of the Kanzelbahn mountain station to the Turnerhütte junction. Over a few wooden steps you now descend somewhat steeper to the Turnerhütte. After the stop, the short ascent is unfortunately not spared. When you get back to the road, you follow it downhill to a large crossroads and again slightly uphill to reach the Pöllinger Hütte, the highest point of the round.

The suggested tour leads on the right edge of the piste over a meadow trail to the Waldtratte and from there to the Sunn Alm the last stop at the Kanzelbahn mountain station.
