You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way! ~ Dr. Seuss ~
Is a cross on a mountain top as enticing to you as it is to me? When you see such a cross, do you want to know what the view from up there will be? Then look no further; you have just found the perfect hiking week! This week we do a “crusade in hiking pants”.
In and around the Hohe Tauern National Park you can find many crosses, marking a special place. Usually a mountain top, but also points where one crosses from one valley into the next or places where a particular event is being commemorated.
A summit cross on a mountain top (in German: “Gipfelkreuz”) often can only be reached by mountain climbers, but this rule has some notable exceptions. There are some tops that can also be reached by mountain hikers. This week’s goal is to visit a couple of these crosses and explore their views. During this hiking week I will give you the opportunity to look at 3 summit crosses up close and enjoy the view there.
All hikes are intermediate or difficult (click here for clarification). The “difficult” hike is only so in the sense it is long; technically it falls into the intermediate category. All hikes last ca. 5 – 8 hours per day – experience in mountain hiking gives you an advantage!
