Tamara planned a hike.
February 9, 2021
The 14th stage starts with fantastic views of the Vorderen Gosausee. Right at the beginning you have a steep ascent up to the mountain station of the Gosaukammbahn. Once at the top, you can treat yourself to a second breakfast in one of the two huts.Then you leave Upper Austria and cross the border to the state of Salzburg. Alternating between light forest and wide alpine meadows, you walk in an arc around the Kleiner Donnerkogel. With a view of several 2,000-meter peaks, you continue through the incredibly beautiful mountains to the Stuhlalm, where you can stop off.Afterwards it becomes more demanding, because you walk the promising Schwarzkogelsteig. For the narrow, rocky path you should bring surefootedness. Past the Sulzkarhütte, another refreshment stop, you hike the last section of this day to the Hofpürglhütte. The large hut, clad with wooden shingles, offers different beds and a wonderful sun terrace.
