This hike along the beautiful and sunny southern slopes of the Kulm is designed as an interesting walk for families – Tree Horoscope theme path.
This is a hiking loop leading to a number of very beautiful lookout points. And for surefooted hikers there is an enticing extra: a hike up the Freienstein, then back along the Tree Horoscope Path. The Freienstein is a forested rocky ridgeline with a beautiful, occasionally exposed alpine trail to the summit cross, where we are greeted by impressive views.
Sturdy shoes, rain shelter
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.
