Visit the ancient ruin "Wartenfels" and enjoy the view from the Schober peak.

Look out: alpine experience gained, to not start when the weather is bad or the ground is still wet!

Start at the Forsthaus Wartenfels and turn right immediately onto a sharp increasing forest trail. Climb for about 15 minutes to reach the ruin. This trail is also an experience for kids. From the ruin follow the trail straight ahead until the Schober peak. The trail is made safe with ropes, surefootedness is a pro anyway. After enjoying the view over the Mondsee and Irrsee lakes hike along to the next peak called "Frauenkopf" with another exceptional view over the Fuschlsee lake. The way back is strong decreasing through the forest to the starting point.
