OverviewBaukogel is a 2.224m high summit in Glockner Group, Hohe Tauern. In the lower sections you walk through forest, higher up you have flat Alpine pastures and in the end 3 ridges to the summit (north, east and south). There are no public huts nearby but you can stay in the towns around.
Baukogel is a perfect ski tour as it has slopes with nice declines and is quite secure of avalanches in ‘main winter season’ (December to February).
The area is in the north-east corner of Goldberg Group, on the west side of Rauris Valley with Rauris as main town.
