The tour starts at the post office, continues along Loretostraße and then Bürgerbergstraße over 4 serpentines until you reach the junction to Bürgerbergweg. There is a large board with a gentian on it that marks the entrance to hiking trail no.462, where you immerse into the shade of the forest. After about 1 hour of hiking, the forest clears and you have reached the Bürgerbergalm. The hiking trail goes on after the Bürgerbergalm well marked and in the shade of the trees until you reach the summit of the Rossbrand with the Radstädter hut. Finally you can enjoy breathtaking panorama from the summit, which has inspired the creator of the large wooden cross to write with deep notches in the crossbeam: "God, home is beautiful!".
A toll-free road leads up to a parking lot that is only a 15-minute walk below the summit, so that everyone can experience this fantastic view. Parallel to the ascent path 461 can be chosen for the descent directly from the Radstädter Hütte via the Gasthof Rohrmoos back to Radstadt. This path crosses the road to the Rossbrand time and time again. This extensive round can be shortened considerably if you drive to the Bürgerbergalm by car and then hike along a forest road towards Gasthof Rohrmoos.
