Summit Hike
Hintere Goinger Halt (2,192 Metres)

The Hintere Goinger Halt is considered the easiest to climb of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains. This means that it can get pretty busy when the weather is good. From the top you will be able to see several of the most well-known mountains in the region, including Fleischbank (2,168 metres), Christaturm (2,170 metres), Totenkirchl (2,190 metres), Predigtstuhl (2,118 metres) and many more. The first half of the climb is relatvely easy, but the second half is more demanding and requires good fitness as well as sure-footedness and a good head for heights. There are several sections where hikers can use steel ropes anchored into the rock to hold onto. This hike is rated intermediate to difficult.

Trail description

It is possible to reach the Wochenbrunner Alm (1,080 metres) by car, where there is a large car park. However, access is via a toll road. This is the starting point of the hike. First, follow a wide farm track to the Gaudeamushütte at 1,263 metres above sea level. From there, signposts and good markings guide you towards the Ellmauer Tor. The trail leads through mountain pines and over scree slopes towards a peak known ass the Vordere Karlsspitze. There are two very steep sections where steel ropes have been anchored into the rock for extra safety.

Continue to the Ellmauer Tor at just under 2,000 metres, then turn right onto the marked trail heading in a north-easterly direction. After around half an hour you will reach the summit of Hintere Goinger Halt (2,192 metres). The descent follows the same route as the ascent. The route is just under nine kilometres long in total and has a good 1,100 vertical metres of uphill and downhill, with a number of passages that are steep and/or on loose terrain.
