Alpine tour: Hochkar - Dürrenstein - Ötscher The last primeval forest in Central Europe is within easy reach and yet inaccessible.
The hike leads from the well-kept ski circus on the Hochkar over alpine meadows and unspoilt countryside into the middle of a rustic landscape: into the retreat of the last Ötscherbären, into forests, where the beetle is still allowed to gnaw with impunity.
Over sharp rock ridges from one alpine authority to another.
From Hochkar to Dürrenstein, both over 1800 metres high.
In between the Tremelsattel as the only vanishing point for the pinching out.
A 30 kilometre long mountain tour experience that is rarely to be found in the entire Northern Limestone Alps.
Finally, conquer the Ötscher (Vaterberg) and the 2-day tour is perfect for all mountain climbers. Landscape great transgression mostly above the tree line.
No climbing spots, but absolute surefootedness required.
The only alternative from the Tremelsattel to the north into the Steinbachtal.
