This mountain tour starts at the parking space at the inn Talwirt. Here you will find local delicacies and you can buy smoked bacon. On the first floor of the Talwirt is the exhibitation of the mountain forest and an information point from the national park Hohe Tauern. The Hüttschlager Bauernladenstüberl is nearby, where you can also buy products from their own production. Right next door is the valley museum of the Grossarltal.

You hike past the farm Stockham in the direction to the Kreealmen. Right at the beginning of the path to the Kreealmen, there is the Kreealm-Wasserfall.

On the way up, you have the choice whether you prefer the forestry road or the shortcuts through the forest. Just before you reach the mountain huts, there is a small chapel.

There are tow mountain huts on the Kreealm, the Kreealm-Kreehütte is the lower one, the upper one is the Kreealm-Bichlhütte. On both huts, you are spoiled with delicacies from their own production (cheese, butter, bread, bacon or sausages).

After a short rest, you continue upwards through alpine meadows to the Murtörl. Here it is often very windy, so it can happen that you hike the whole day in short sleeves, but you need warm clothes on the Murtörl.

Author’s recommendation

You can hike up to the Mureck, 2,402 m (approx. 20 min in one direction). There is a beautiful summit cross.

Die Aussicht war Traumhaft schön, der Weg ist sehr gut Gekennzeichnet und man kommt an wunderschönen Stellen vorbei wo man Halt machen kann und will. Wir hatten glück und haben sogar Gämse und Murmeltiere gesehen. Jedoch muss man eine gute Kondition mitbringen und so gut wie kein Gepäck, weil es sonnst das letzte Stück zur Qual wird.
