August 6, 2019
It is one of the most popular house mountains in the Höllengebirge: the Schoberstein. From its summit at 1,037 meters altitude you have a breathtaking view over the Attersee - even the ascent is very promising. The start of the six-kilometer tour is in Weißenbach, at the beginning of the Weißenbach valley.The narrow trail leads you in continuouslySerpentines up to the tree line. The last section then runs on rocky ground. The ascent to the mountain is classified as moderate, a wire rope gives you in some places security. Nevertheless, do not be distracted too much from the sensational view. Then you have enough time on the summit. The panoramic view from there is just fantastic.Then it goes back the same way. In Weißenbach you will find several restaurants to stop by.Option on extensions: If you still have not enough after climbing the Schoberstein, you can continue hiking to Mahdlgupf at 1,261 meters. Then you have the opportunity to extend the tour on the Mahdlschneid continue to Brennerin (1,602 altitude difference) again.
