From Salzburg drive highway A10, later main road 311 towards Zell am See. In Taxenbach turn left towards Rauris/Raurisertal. Later through Wörth to the end of public road. Here begins the toll road (9 euro or Salzburger Land card), which you can pass by the post bus. You must leave your car at parking Lenzanger, later a short trip by bus, to Kolm Saigurn (the road from Lenzanger parking to Kolm Saigurn is open for public transport and inhabitants only).

Route Description

In Kolm Saigurn (1596 m) go by post bus to the end of its line, at Ammererhof (or get there on foot). Then take the marked route "Arnoweg" to Niedersachsenhaus (2472 m), which is situated in the south ridge. Here begins the nice trail (red marked, good visible path) over the long ridge. You go through Riffelhöhe (2694 m) and Neunerkogel (with summit cross, 2827 m), to the Herzog-Ernst-Spitze (2933 m). On the way you find some steel ropes in most difficult places. Later on east ridge with some small steps and one wall to the summit. The division from Herzog-Ernst-Spitze to the summit is partially secured by steel cable and artificial steps (like via ferrata).

Essential Gear

Via ferrata equipment reccomended. Gloves, sun- and wind protection.
