Trail to 360 Grad Skytour

That’s the way

Take the chairlift to Hochkar Vorgipfel, then walk to the radio mast and continue to the 60m rope bridge. You are 120m above ground at the top of the viewing platform, continue the loop trail.  

Look forward to an impressive view of Gesäuse and Dachstein mountains. You can also see the 1,808 m peak of Hochkar – the start and the end of the trail.

If you need some refreshments after this unforgettable walk, make a stop at JoSchi Berghaus!

Dive into the alpine world of the Mostviertel and its great scenery!

Tip: Rise and shine – take the chairlift, inhale fresh morning air and be on Hochkar before dawn.

You will never forget this view! Mountain peaks jutting out from a sea of fog, on the horizon the sun is rising.  Fascinating and picturesque!

You want to see that, too? Ride towards the sun on selected days from July to September!

By the way: Is there anything better than having breakfast after watching an amazing sunrise in the mountains? No! – JoSchi Berghaus serves a great breakfast.
