Central Alpine Trail 02 through Styria

The highlights of this tour range from crossing the highest elevation on the eastern edge of the Alps, the Stuhleck, to crossing Austria's largest contiguous forest area, Peter Rosegger's forest home in the Fischbacher Alps. Also crossing a unique alpine pasture area around Teichalm and Sommeralm, to crossing the Niedere Tauern on the Schladminger Tauern Höhenweg. Attention: The section through the Bärenschützklamm ravine is closed due to a rockfall! The ravine can be bypassed via the hiking trail leading north of it, from the restaurant Zum guten Hirten to Mautstatt.


The Central Alpine Trail with the number 02 was opened in 1978 and deserves to be called a high-altitude route. The Niedere Tauern in particular require not only suitable equipment but also surefootedness, a head for heights and orientation skills. At the beginning, the tour leads us from Spital am Semmering to a historic peak: in 1892, the Stuhleck was the first Alpine peak to be climbed on skis. We continue our hike across the Fischbach Alps parallel to the hiking route "From the Glacier to the Wine", the long-distance hiking trail in Styria, to the Teich and Sommeralm, the largest contiguous cultivated alpine pasture area in Europe. The trail continues over the northern part of the Koralm into the Mur valley, where we enter the Niedere Tauern via Seckau, famous for its monastery. We cross these from east to west along the well-known Schladminger Tauern Höhenweg trail to finally reach our destination in Schladming in the Ennstal valley.
