Tour description:

Valley station Hochplattenbahn - mountain station - Hochplattenalm - Piesenhauser Hochalm - Hochplattenalm - mountain station - valley station

At the starting point you can decide whether you prefer to take the mountain railway or a 45-minute walk to the mountain station .

From there, continue left on a forest path along the edge of the forest, which leads you through the mountain forest and past a few alpine pastures to the Hochplattenalm . After a while the path splits to the left to the Hochplatten summit and to the right to the Habernspitz . You follow path 66 , which leads you on a very promising, downhill alpine road after a short time to the Piesenhausener Hochalm , which is at 1,350 meters.

The way back is on the same hiking trail or on a climb below the Friedenrath, which, however, requires sure-footedness .
