Winter hiking paths:

A winter hike from the Gnadenalm to the Südwiener hut.

Setting off from the front of the Gnadenalm, you follow the winter hiking trail from the parking area towards the back of the Gnadenalm. Then you come to the ascent to the Südwiener hut. And if you don’t fancy tackling the return journey on foot, you can always take a toboggan back down the slope. Toboggans can be hired on site.
