Hochschwab crossing: 1. Day 23.6.2005

After driving to Aflenz and further to the parking ground near Schwabenbartl Inn (814 m) we ascent to Voisthaler Huette (1.670 m), an Alpine lodge, where we sleep this night. Arrival at 20.45 Uhr after 2 1/2 hours walk (no problem in midsummer).


View from Foelz in direction to the Hochschwab massive with Foelzkogel (2.022 m) and Winkelkogel (1.951 m)

Near the parking ground: Common spotted Orchid

Foelz gorge. Under the bridge built of round wood Foelz beck roars
