Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Beautiful via ferrata is the victory of the Prince Luipold House also beautiful in the shade.
Probably more climbing than a via ferrata, at least experienced alpinists can confidently do without taking along the via ferrata set, but ultimately everyone has to rate it for themselves. In ascent more beautiful than in the descent, but so it is with most climbing. Alternatively, you can descend via the Balkenscharte (inquire beforehand about the state of the snowfield in the Kaltenwinkel at the hut host!)

The ascent to the Hochvogel can be done via the cold angle or the Kreuzspitze. I chose the ascent via Kalter Winkel and back over the Kreuzspitze. Whether via ferrata or not, I saw no difference in difficulty in either variant. There are exposed spots even via the Cold Angle, but there are no fuses and the snow field is not without. Of course, I didn't have a backup with me, but I didn't find it to be mandatory. For beginners and inexperienced, everything about Kreuzspitze and Hochvogel is probably a no-go and some safety and experience in the alpine should be available.
