Winter hike

The start of this impressive circular walk, which begins in the settlement of Rauchenbach near Kartitsch, is so high that there are only about 200 vertical metres of altitude difference between the starting point and the highest point at 1,700m. The hike begins by passing through a series of snow-covered meadows towards the Kartitscher Sattel. After just a few minutes of walking there is a bench inviting walkers to sit down and admire the view. The second half of the loop has more forest sections and leads past a number of beautiful huts back to the starting point at the Klammerwirt guesthouse, which serves delicious local food including "Kaiserschmarrn" (thick chopped pancake with raisins topped with icing sugar).
