Hike to the Sonnkogel in Leogang


After a hearty breakfast at the family-run AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment Maria Alm, we set off in the direction of the show mine in Leogang. The show mine can be reached from the hotel in 25 minutes by car. Just before the "Knappenstube" or Unterberghaus inn, there are a few free parking spaces. Then walk up to the right at the barrier in the direction of Spielbergalmen/ Scheltaualmen.

The first 45 minutes take you up a beautiful forest road past the Adamalm to the next junction. Unfortunately, the Sonnkogel summit is not directly marked anywhere. There is a small wooden bench at the turn-off and you walk along the road to the right. This ends after approx. 10 minutes and turns into a hiking trail. Then follow the markings to the summit at 1,727 m. Return along the same route.

Altitude difference: 726 m
Walking time ascent: approx. 2 hours
