Safety information

-> Prior to each tour, the physical fitness and previous mountaineering experience of all participants  – adults and children – must be assessed. Trekking & mountaineering often require surefootedness and a head for heights.

-> Each mountain tour should be planned and executed using official tour descriptions and hiking maps.  Information from alpine clubs and local experts, such as mountain guides and hut owners, can be especially helpful in this regard.

-> Appropriate equipment and clothing are essential in the mountains. When mountaineering you need solid hiking shoes with non-slip soles. Since the weather in the mountains can be quite changeable, all-weather clothing is advised upon. The pace of the walk must be adjusted to the weakest member of the group. It is especially important at the beginning of the tour to go slowly and be sure to observe other participants, so that exhaustion may be detected in time. 

-> Do not leave the marked hiking paths. To avoid falls, pay close attention to where you walk, even in light terrains. Be careful when walking on steep grassy slopes, especially when wet. It is especially dangerous to cross steep snowfields and glaciers.

-> It is essential to avoid the loss of stones along the route, as this could hurt other hikers. In areas prone to rockfall, pass individually as quickly as possible and without stopping.

-> Hikers wishing to be accompanied by their dog is a sensitive topic of late. In some instances (e.g.  cows with newborn calves), cattle may be particularly aggressive towards dogs, especially those on a leash. It is essential to stay calm in these instances, be careful and trust your instinct, also take note of possible warning signs. Untrained dogs are to kept on a leash at all times!

-> If the weather changes along the way, mist falls, the road becomes too difficult or is in bad shape, you should turn back immeadiately. There is no shame in it, it is always the best thing to do.

-> If an accident should occur, keep calm. In some cases you will be able to help yourself. If not, try to get help by calling someone, yelling, flashing a light or waving large clothes to attract attention. If possible, anyone who is injured should not be left alone.

-> The mountains are a place for everyone, and it is the duty of every climber and hiker to help with their preservation and cleanliness. Please take all waste back with you into the valley and leave the flora and fauna of the mountains untouched.

-> Important telephone numbers:

-> Alpine Emergency Call 140, International Emergency Call 112

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Neue Bonner-Hütte, you first follow a slight downhill to the wide road that leads to the east in the Laußnitztal valley in the direction of Rennweg. After about 800m you come to a junction. Here you stay in the direction of the Ebenwald-Laußnitzer Hütte: at first you walk comfortably up the forest path no. 113 to Ebenwaldhöhe. At the crossroads you stay on your way and go straight downhill first and again a bit steeper uphill to the quaint farmed Laußnitzer Hütte. From here the trail no. 113 leads up to the idyllic Laußnitzsee, which you follow along its eastern shore. Now the trail leads a bit steeper uphill and then gently rising (Take the left way at the junction) up to the Schwarzwand (2.214m), which represents the highest point of the two huts connection path.

You now hike the wonderful ridge (always following the path no. 113) along just below the Gmeinnock (2.130m) past nameless mountain lakes to the beautifully situated lake Anderlesee. Continue with the Kameritzhöhe (2.167m) up till the Gaipahöhe (2.192m). Here you leave the ridge and walk the Wiesensteig about 180 vertical meters down to a track. This path you follow to the left (east) almost without loss of height to the "Blutige Alm Hütte" (1.195m). Here you have the opportunity to inform yourself about the “Speik”, a small inconspicuous plant that only occurs in the Nockberge mountains.

At the hut you choose the path no. 114 down south, hiking past a reservoir lake along the marked trail, which leads west of the cableway to Innerkrems - about 100 meters above Innerkrems you have the opportunity to take the path on the right to the lower district or on the left in the upper district of Innerkrems, depending on the location of your hotel.

How challenging is the Nockberge-Trail hiking route?

Easy to medium. Technically speaking, the Nockberge-Trail hike is not that difficult. There are no rope secured or exposed sections that require a complete head for heights. Even if you often hike at altitudes of up to 2350m and have conquered many peaks, there are no technical difficulties. A certain amount of surefootedness – being able to move safely and quickly in the terrain – is required.
