Winding your way

Several scenic hikes in the Murtal region begin in the lofty heights. Three summer cableways lead to the best starting points for mountain pasture and Alpine hut hikes, leisurely walks, peak trails and descents.


In summer, the Kreischberg is a diverse, family-friendly hiking region.From the family-friendly Kreischberg resort, you cross gentle Alpine meadows up to the summit of the Kreischberg (2000 m) or the Rosenkranzhöhe (2118 m). Travelling on the 6-seater chair-lift in Lachtal opens up beautiful views from the hut walk to the ridge walk at 2000 metres above sea level. Discover the magnificent mountain scenery of the Turracherhöhe at around 2,000 m. You can save your energy for the subsequent climb by using the panoramic cable car or the 6-seater Kornock chair-lift.
