Hiking Tour "Maurerkogel"
The Maurerkogel is a neighbour peak of the Schmittenhöhe. You follow the Pinzgau Stroll for a couple of minutes until you get to the crossing "Maurerkogel". From now on you just follow the sign until you get to the peak and there you enjoy a breathtaking view over the peaks of the Hohe Tauern and the Wilder Kaiser.
On the returning way you can stop at Hochsonnbergalm, a very traditional and typical Pinzgau hut with homemade products. Your way back to the top of Schmittenhöhe leads over some parts of the Pinzgau Stroll - have fun!
