250 meters of ascent, 1700 meters of descent in magnificent surroundings! How does it work? The Ankogel cable car makes it possible, and the return trip to the starting point by rail through the Tauern tunnel adds an extra charm to this great tour.


Analysing terrain data








Comfortable ascent with the cable car, a short ascent, magnificent views of the Ankogel, the "Tauern Queen" Hochalmspitze and the beautiful pyramid of the Säuleck and then the grandiose descent "on the other side" into the Anlauftal - tourer's heart, what more could you ask for?The tour from the Ankogel cable car to the Radeckscharte with the subsequent descent to the Böckstein railway station is one of the great classics around Mallnitz.

The return journey from the north to the south side of the Tauern Main Ridge is by train, the trains run every hour, 20 minutes after the hour (10.20, 11.20 etc.)! Usual ski touring equipment with shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver.

Due to the short ascent also ideal for freeride equipment (Duke or similar).

Ascent without touring binding and skins possible in good conditions.
