Enjoy the view as far as Carinthia

In late autumn, by chance, you can already spot a white inconspicuous ptarmigan now and then. An always continuing easy ascent brings you to the Schwarmbrunnhöhe. Arrived at the most prominent point of your hike, the Prankerhöhe, you have earned a real mountain snack. With relish you unpack the delicacies. Hungry, you pounce on the delicacies. The deep blue sky gives you a view as far as Carinthia to the Karawanken and Lienz Dolomites.

Stop, close your eyes and listen to the sounds of nature. The Nockberge mountains are at your feet. The Eisenhut and the Winterthaler show themselves from their most beautiful side. Along the ridge you will continue to the highest peak of your circular hike, the Goldachnock, via the Schattloch . If you cast your gaze northward into the depths, you can discover the gently embedded Hauserersee. Perhaps you will be lucky and catch a glimpse of the countless chamois in the wild. The last three peaks are now only a stone's throw away from you after the Kirbisch you have already reached the Rosenkranzhöhe and reach the Kreischberg summit cross via the ski slope.

The long, but easy to walk tour offers you a stop at the beginning with the Murauer Hütte or at the end with the Rieglerhütte of your round. Enjoy the wonderful 360 degree panoramic view. You reach the valley via the ÖAV trail 130 or TVB trail no. 3 (forest road marked red/yellow).

Tip: Take the comfortable Murtalbahn (narrow-gauge railroad) from St. Lorenzen to Murau.

Depending on the weather, hikeable from May to October.
