A relatively flat, comfortable and sunny winter hiking trail on the Gerlitzen. Of course, only sections of the trail can be walked on (e.g. Pöllingerhütte-Steinerner Tisch or Hotel Feuerberg-Kammerhütte etc.).
There are several places where you can start this winter hike. The prepared trail leads from Hotel Feuerberg via Schönfeldsiedlung to Pöllingerhütte and from there to Kammerhütte (both managed). Then it goes on for approx. 1.8 kilometres to the Steinernen Tisch. Enjoy the wonderful winter world on the Gerlitzen Alpe as well as Carinthian delicacies in the huts!

Author’s recommendation

This hike also partly leads along the "Kostale Weg" on which you can try Carinthian Kostalan (small culinary delicacies), for example at the Pöllingerhütte.

You can enter the hiking tour at several different places. If you take the pulpit rail "Kanzelbahn", then we would recommend the Pöllingerhütte as your starting point. There are two ways to get there. You can either walk on the hiking trails No. 4, 34 and No. 33, or you can take the chairlift up to Prinzhütte and then the one to the Pöllingerhütte. (1764 m)

Turn-by-turn directions

From Hotel Feuerberg, the prepared trail leads along hiking trail no. 7 to Schönfeldsiedlung - where you turn right following trail no. 33 towards Pöllingerhütte. Shortly before this you have to cross the piste - please be careful! After a stopover at the Pöllingerhütte, continue north along hiking trail no. 5 to the Kammerhütte. After the Kammerhütte, follow hiking trail no. 45 downhill for approx. 200 metres, then follow hiking trail no. 41 northwest. This leads to the Schlossbauer Alm, after which you follow hiking trail no. 62 to the Steinernen Tisch. The way back leads over the same distance - whereby the Kammerhütte offers itself for a short culinary stop.
