Especially beautiful is next to the view of the artistic summit cross on the Krummbachstein. Right next to the Schneeberg rises this 1,602-meter-high summit.
The modern Naturfreundehaus Knofeleben on the south side of the Krummbachstein is only an hour away.

The Krummbachstein is a 1602 meter high mountain in Lower Austria. He belongs to the Rax-Schneeberg group and is the highest elevation of the Gahn; it is only separated from the Schneeberg by the Krummbachsattel. From the Krummbachstein opens a beautiful view of the Schneeberg and the Höllental.
150 meters east of the summit cross is the 1909 built and very simply managed Alpenfreundehütte (1568 m). The secondary peak about 500 m east of the summit cross is only slightly lower than the main summit.
On the south side of the Krummbachsteins lies the Naturfreundehaus Knofeleben, from which the summit can be reached in less than an hour via the so-called Schiblsteig (green marking). For the last part of the way there are two variants available, a forest path to the Alpenfreundehütte (not difficult) and the direct summit ascent (rocks, difficulty I-).
The mountain is also accessible by footpaths from Alpleck in the east (yellow mark) and Krummbachsattel in the north.
