Author’s recommendation

The starting point of this tour can also be moved upwards according depending on the snow conditions. Take the Gerlitzen road up to the Gasthof Matthiasl (toll-free!) and leave your car there. From there follow the way no. 3 to Winkl Ossiachberg. After approximately 20 minutes you will reach the junction towards Birkenhof.
