 The 13.4 km long mountain tour of the Wurzeralm up to the Warscheneck 2.388m and Liezener 2.367m is recommended, because of the southeast ridge Warscheneck, only for experienced hikers. Especially the section between Widerlechnerstein 2.107m and the peak Warscheneck is a demanding climb category A / B and I. Less trained and children should use climbing equipment or be secured with a safety rope. Sure-footedness and no fear of heights are essential for this tour. Conditionally, the tour is not so demanding because 450 vertical meters can be covered with the Frauenkar double chairlift. Of course you can also hike of the base station on the slopes up to the mountain station and then on a trail to the mountain station Frauenkar. But we have decided us on this tour for the simpler version.

We start the hike with the funicular railway up to the Wurzeralm. On the Wurzeralm circular hiking path we go cozy 1.2 km long, because usually slightly downhill to the base station of the chairlift - Frauenkar. Of the mountain station you’ll walk on the marked hiking trail to the first mountain Widerlechnerstein 2.107m. There are already very impressive views to the nearby mountains Ramesch and Eisernes Bergl. After a short descent into a basin we hike up to the insured locations. The trail leads us with ropes, foot bolts and clamps along the ridge 500m right up to the peak. The view on the western edge of the mountains – Totes Gebirge is excellent. Particularly those that prefer a quieter rest on the summit, I recommend the short trip to the next mountain - Liezener 2.367m. There and back again we go 1.6 km and about 140 vertical meters.

For the descent you take best the normal route. This leads via a short steep passage to the East down to the mountain meadow – Speikwiese and then just above the saddle – Rote Wand Sattel to the lake - Brunnsteinersee 1.438m. The small lake is home to endangered newts and salamanders. It is also the origin of the creek - Teichl that flows from their through the Moore - Teichlboden. The last two kilometers we go above the Teichlboden on the gravel road to the Wurzeralm mountain station. On the sunny terrace we enjoy the magnificent views before we take the funicular back down into the valley.
