Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Katschberg tourist information and passing 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). Stay on this path (also called Herzerlweg), and you’ll soon reach your destination, first the Marienkapelle and then the comfortable Gamskogelhütte with children’s playground, where you can stop for a rest. From Gamskogelhütte you can then take the Rodelweg, which begins below the hut, downhill until you reach the asphalted road. Down the road on the right you’ll reach Pizzeria Stamperl, go through the tunnel and you’re back at the starting point.
