The walk up from the last parking lot is easy. Maximum 1 1/2 hours. The way isnt to steep and when you arrive at the top you will see, it was definitely worth it! Amazing view. Also very nice for sunset and sunrise!

Ideal for hiking in hot summer days. The path is quite easy, so it's not a problem to go with small children. In winter there is heaven. And the air is always clear!

This is a fabulous attraction with stunning views of Austria, Slovenia, and Italy. The Southern trail to the top follows the face of the cliff and offers beautiful views of Italy. It is steep and rocky in many places and requires care when crossing rockslides....More

We did it in a bit less than 90 minutes and we did not hurry at all. Quite easy, it goes up but never too abruptly, and the path is quite comfortable.
