The easiest climb to the summit of Hochkönig ( 2941 m ) leads on the road no. 430 from Arthurhaus on a gravel road to the Mitterfeldalm. We continue on a marked trail to the edge of the glacier Übergossene Alm. Next on the flat snow field to the summit structure which is mounted on a steep, with ladder and ropes, how secure a stretch. On the Hochkönig summit awaits the Matrashaus and a wonderful panorama. Suitable for well-equipped and experienced hikers, a mountain guide is recommended. Please note the current weather situation.
Safe hiking requires advance information and preparation. Please follow the rules for correct behaviour in the mountains. Because your safety is very important to us. And don't forget: Drink plenty of fluids during the tour! Bring litter down to the valley. Conserve the flora and fauna. Behavior with animals on the mountain pastures: Do not stroke or irritate cows, calves, sheep, horses, etc., but behave "normally" and do not show fear. Do not leave ways on alpine pastures and avoid animals with large distance. The dog must not chase on the pasture animals under any circumstances, especially mother cows fear for their calves. If a grazing animal should attack the dog, however, simply let it run for its own protection.
