Depending on the time of year and how – on foot, by bike or by car – you want to ascend the Rossbrand, it means setting your alarm clock exceedingly early. On the internet there are a number of sites which can tell you exactly what time the sun rises to the very minute and how long you need to reach the peak. Keep an eye on the weather forecast too, as clouds can spoil the view of the sunrise.
Wrapped up in a thick warm blanket with a cushion under my behind and a headband covering my ears, I then sit on a bench by the peak cross. My equipment also includes good walking boots with furry insoles and a thermos flask of hot fruit tea to keep me warm.
A sunrise tour is a very special experience – whether on foot, by bike, car or on a lift (sunrise trips are available in Zauchensee, for example), and well worth getting up early for. Many of you are probably already familiar with our local Radstadt mountain during the bright light of day, yet I can really recommend the adventure of a sunrise at an altitude of almost 1,800 m. Treat yourself and recharge your batteries with a good dose of morning sunshine! ??For all those who aren’t inspired to get up so early – the sunset on the mountain peak is (almost) just as beautiful ??
