From the district of Bach, you hike along the forestry road to the Bachalm. After your break, you hike upwards through the forest. Then you hike through alpine meadows where you pass lots of small mountain lakes. Finally, you reach the Frauenkogel. This mountain is like a pyramid, watching over the valley.

On the Frauenkogel, there is particularly beautiful summit cross and the view is magnificient.

Back on the same route or to the Aigenalmen.

Author’s recommendation

If you hike down to the Aigenalmen, you have a great round trip.
