Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Katschberg tourist information, the walk leads through the hotel village. When you reach Hotel Cristallo, take the slightly uphill path on the left that doesn’t lead through the tunnel. This takes you over Hüttendorf Landal. After a few hundred metres you’ll see trail no. 19 signposted on the right (large gate) to Gamskogelhütte. Stay on this path (also called Herzerlweg), and you’ll soon reach the Marienkapelle and beyond it to the left is a track that leads past a small pond and up round the mountain to Gontalscharte at 1,911m. From here take trail no.18 downhill towards Pritzhütte or Hanslbauerhütte (chalet). Return via forest path no. 20 from Pritzhütte to Katschberghöhe. If you have chosen the path over Hanslbauerhütte, continue over flat terrain for a short while and then slightly downhill until you reach a gate with a signpost directing to the right. Here a narrow steep track leads to Oberkatschberg. You arrive right back at Gasthof Bacher on asphalted trail no. 20.
