This mountain tour starts in the village center of Hüttschlag. You cross the river and hike relatively steep to the Hundegg. At the beginning, you have a view to the Hüttschlager Wand. There are some via ferratas.

Then you hike through beautiful alpine meadows to the Hundegg. The panorama view is simply unique.

Back on the same route.
