From the Schattberg to the Schmittenhöhe
The tour will certainly take you to your limits: Two complete meals, bananas or the like and approx. four litres of water should be included in the supplies. Running shoes are absolutely unsuitable! With the Schattberg X-press (be sure to check the operating hours: from Monday to Friday, there is an early-morning journey between 7:30 and 7:40, after which the railway is closed until 9:00) the Pinzgau Walk begins.
Important information concerning the early-morning journey
