A wonderful day today invited to a long overdue tour, the crossing of the Petzen from the Luschasattel to the Feistritzerspitze, then on to the Knieps and finally with a valley descent on the slopes of the Petzen ski area.With two cars we first went to the Petzenbergbahnen, which will be our destination in the future. Then we continued by car via Eisenkappel and Lappen up to the Luschasattel. The road is pushed up to the Luschasattel, but can only be reached via Eisenkappel.So the tour can begin, first it goes slightly downhill on the forest road to a prominent farmstead, where we then turn left and follow the Südalpenweg 03, Kärntner Grenzweg. From now on there is a moderate ascent up to the Planina Zgornja Luca. After that it's a little steeper, but in good snow conditions up to the tree line. From now on it will be a bit windy, as is typical for the Petzen. We continue to follow the markings to the Feistritzerspitze with its 2113m.After 2 hours we reach the Feistritzerspitze - the view is tremendous. The view covers half of Carinthia and extends to Slovenia.Despite the fairly blown snow conditions at the summit, an ascent on skis is possible. After a short break, the falls are removed and the first short descent is tackled. After a short descent, it's time to put on skins again in order to be able to cope with the last climb on the Knieps.
Then we finally go down, first we drive off-road until we get to the ski slope of the Petzen Bergbahnen. With perfect slope conditions, we swing down the slope to the valley station, where the car is already waiting for us.
Then we go up to the Luschasattel again by car to pick up the second one.Conclusion:
A wonderful tour away from the hustle and bustle. The ascent of almost 1000 meters in altitude is consistently easy to manage. Personally, I would not recommend the descent back to the Luschasattel. Due to the massive damage to the forest a few years ago, there are too many invisible dangers hidden under the snow. The route further from the Feistritzerspitze to the Knieps and the valley descent along the piste is certainly the better alternative.
Disadvantage, you need two vehicles and it takes some time to transfer the vehicles.
The current slope conditions on the Petzen can be described as fantastic.With this in mind, we wish you a lot of fun with our tour and wish you all the best,

# 6 Ski tour to the border triangle with descent on the toboggan run.
This time, too, we went through the forest of the Petrinjakgraben up to the Dreiländereck, the conditions are still very good, although the track in the upper third in the forest is a bit slippery, but currently everything is manageable without crampons.
For the descent, I decided this time to use or explore the toboggan run. Conclusion: The condition of the toboggan run can be described as perfect, well prepared and hard, for the descent with the toboggan certainly something fun, with the skis rather unspectacular. Slight climbs during the descent slowed down the fun and at the end of the toboggan run the approx. 800m long walk back to the parking lot weren't thrilling either.
Still a perfect day

Sunrise ski tour to the three-country corner in wonderful conditions. Start was shortly after 0500h in the parking lot of the Dreiländereck mountain railways, deserted and lonely it then went up the beginner's hill to the entry into the forest track which leads through the Petrinjakgraben up to the summit. The track through the forest is perfectly groomed, not icy and there is more than enough snow in the forest.When I arrived at the summit, I was rewarded with a wonderful sunrise, which slowly let the mountains shine in 360 degrees in the sunlight.With almost 850 meters in altitude, this tour is perfect for such projects, I can only warmly recommend doing this tour.With this in mind, I wish you a lot of fun and joy with the pictures posted and therefore remain with best regards,

The pretty Sternberg church stands in a very special place. Located on a hill you have a wonderful view of the Karawanken. The food in the former messnerei, a small, very fine restaurant with lovingly prepared dishes, is also special.
We love to come back here again and again.

Since I still had some time after the city hiking trail 12, I thought to myself that I should also take a close look at the city hiking trail 11 that I was missing.
The Vienna city hiking trails show Vienna's green side and offer relaxation for city children who long for country air. But wait: all city hiking trails? No - Stadtwanderweg 11 is out of line. Unlike the other paths, the Urban Community Housing Hiking Trail is not located on the green outskirts, but in the densely built-up areaThe route starts in Bruno-Kreisky-Park, directly at the U4 station Margaretengürtel. Once you have crossed the park, the first section follows the street course of the belt to Matzleinsdorfer Platz. That doesn't sound very inviting at first: depending on the time of day, traffic and noise are sometimes strong, sometimes very strong.
The path is not marked and therefore you should study the map carefully in advance at the starting point. Then you also learn that there are signs on buildings that supposedly promise interesting things. Well, I had read in and also took the tour with GPS with me and so I started looking for something interesting. By chance I discovered here and there these signs described the courtyards, fountains and buildings, I also explored the courtyards with excitement but the enthusiasm was limited. So I finally marched through a rather dreary quarter to the next.When I arrived at Reumanplatz, I was glad that this ghost of Vienna's Stadtwandeweg 11 came to an end.Conclusion, I cannot make a recommendation here either, because there are much nicer tours in urban Vienna.Nevertheless, Roland wishes you a lot of fun reading
