 The Tressenstein 1.201m is a wooded rock in front of the impressive mountain Grimming. The snowshoe tour is relatively safe from avalanches, because there a no big mountainsides. If not exactly a bad weather, every day go some hikers on the Tressenstein. Therefore, the path is very well groomed and you must not hike through deep snow and often you can reach the summit without snowshoes. Nonetheless take for your safety crampons, because the steep areas in the upper part can be icy sometimes.

The tour starts at the castle in Trautenfels and up to the top there are 535 vertical meters. The first kilometer past the farm and the church ruins Neuhaus is relatively flat. The foundations of the former evangelical church from the 16th century are now a memorial where people should think about bigotry, hatred and forgiveness. Then in the next section up to km 2,4 the trail through the forest has an average gradient of 14%. The last 600m before hut – Grimminghütte are very flat again (The hut is not cultivated during the winter). Behind the hut we walk first to the north and then east. The last 500m before the summit are pretty steep. Those who are not too loud during the final meters, has the chance to see some of the not too shy chamois. In any case, you’ll have a very good view to the Grimming, the Tauplitzalm and the Enns Valley. On the descent back to the hut - Grimminghütte there is a second unmarked, but also in winter often frequented trail. The remaining way back to the castle Trautenfels you go the same route as at the beginning.
