Promising peak hike!
Surprisingly nice is the view from the Ochsenkarhöhe: Pleschnitzzinken, Sattental, Gumpeneck, Hochwildstelle, Bischofsmütze, Dachsteinkette, Totes Gebirge, Ennstaler Alpen, Tauern
Botanical highlights: Almrausblüte in the first half of July, blauer Eisenhut in August, great autumn colors of the surrounding forest in autumn
If you have less time, you can "only" climb the Pleschnitzzinken (2,112 m) - a top-class panoramic mountain that is as easy as it is to reach. Ascent from Bottinghaus am Galsterberg near Pruggern.
good shoes, sticks
Safety on the mountainside: changes in the weather, sudden fall in temperature, thunder storms, wind, fog and snow fields are all objective dangers and require the correct behaviour whilst underway. the landlords of the huts are all very knowledgeable about the mountains and can give you good tips about the weather and the routes. Insufficient equipment, exaggerated opinion of ones capabilities, frivolousness, poor health condition and a false evaluation of the situation can lead to a critical situation. In thunder storms: summits, crest-sites and safety rope aids are to be avoided.
If something should happen call following emergency numbers:
No. 140 - the number for all Alpine Emergencies in all of Austria
No. 112 - European emergency call GSM emergency-call-service
