1st day: Individual arrival at Ebensee and hike to the Riederhütte

After your arrival at Ebensee, the Feuerkogel cable car lifts you up to 1600 meters above sea level. From here you hike along the high plateau up to the Alberfeldkogel with its Europe cross and a wonderful view over the Traunsee lake, the Langbathsee lake and the mountains of the Salzkammergut. Further on, your path leads you through the karst landscape of the Höllengebirge (hell mountainrange) to the Riederhütte.

~ 5 km, 2-3 Std, altitude difference á440 / â250 m

Overnight stay at Riederhütte.


2nd day:Via the Schneekogel to the Kranabethhütte

The highest point of the day is our starting point at 1765 meters above sea level and the lowest is at 1378 meters. The path winds through the wonderful karst landscape, for the most part with leisurely ascents and descents. Initially, it goes in the direction of the Schneekogel. Then you hike along the Kaiserweg over rocky terrain, a flat rock path and a short section over a wire rope secured path to the Kranabethhütte. The phenomenal view from the terrace of the hut offers the perfect opportunity to end the day.

  • Bring your own mouth/nose mask
  • On most huts, card payment is not possible. Take enough cash with you for food and drinks.
  • Due to their location, not all huts can offer running water, hot water or showers. In some cases there is also no flushing system in the toilets.
