Approach


From Munster take the road D10 to Muhlbach sur Munster and then to the Gaschney on the right after the church.

Route Description


From the Gaschney (park), walk to the startpoint of the chairlift to Little Hohneck (disused lift).
Take the track on the left side and conturn the south face of the little Hohneck. You reach higher the farm-inn of Schiessroth. Continue in NW direction on the path to Schaeffertal.
From the Schaeffertal collar, climb left upright (GR 5) to the summit of the Hohneck (1,5 hours from the Gaschney)
This route is advisable also in winter (with snowshoes). You must then walk back the same way.

In summer, you can walk back by using the path leading from Schaeffertal collar through the north face of Little Hohneck (this route is dangerous in winter : avalanches). You cross some gullies and then the forest and you arrive at Schallern hotel. A nice rocky path leads down to Gaschney.

Essential Gear


In winter, snowshoes
