We hiked from Fuschl through the wooded mountainside to the path to the castle ruins.
We did not ascend to the highest part of the summit as it was becoming increasingly steep.
There is a small cafe open from 12:00 at the start of the...More
This us great for the views but don't expect it to be easy. The top section is on agree type paths and at the very top there is a lot of climbing over rock, a bit scary definitely not for the faint hearted. We were...More
The climb up for most part of it is really easy, and the great views of the lakes keep you entertained. The green of the pastures and the blue of the water is so beautiful high up from the trail and the top of the...More

The way to the top of the Schober and Frauenkopf Mountain was quite an adventure. During the last part of the journey you have rather to climb than to hike. Only for experienced persons with good physical condition.
My wife and I successfully climbed it, but it sure wasn't easy for us. I'm still perplexed as to how we were constantly passed by old Austrian folks with trekking poles! It was foggy at the top (which is a rocky peak with a wooden...More
This got lost in translation for us a little as we were expecting a waterfall when in fact the Wartenfel ruins are a ruin or folly with no waterfall in sight - our fault entirely !!
This was as far as we got as the...More
