You hike from the Sonneggbrücke along the forestry road or on shortcuts through the forest to the Muggenfeldalm (closed) and further to the Maurachalm.

At the Maurachalm you are pampered with delicacies from their own production. The Maurachalm is the most northern mountain hut in Grossarltal and is particularly well-known for the exquisite schnapps. The people on the Maurachalm oft sing and play music.

You ascend via the Wagrainer Höhenweg to the Sonntagskogel, where you have a wonderful view to the Salzachtal as well as to the Hohe Tauern.

You descend via the Auhofalm (closed) around the Grindkogel back to the Maurachalm.

Author’s recommendation

You could go up by the Alpendorf cable cars.
