After a good hour’s walk you come to the idyllically located Bürgerbergalm and somehow it’s already time for the first reward: alpine toast, cheese gnocchi and apple strudel are just simply too tempting, yet you shouldn’t stop too long. As you only have a third of the route behind you. The three-hour ascent up to the peak offers plenty of time to think and is therefore ideal for preparing for the ritual. The fun oracle game with stones at the summit is supposed to help you make difficult decisions.
The summit plateau of the Rossbrand with peak cross, themed info boards, wooden panorama loungers and extensive meadow area is a spot for lingering. I can hardly get enough of this splendid panoramic view – almost at eye level with the mighty Bischofsmütze and Dachstein mountains: the heavens seem so near, the cloud moods and displays of light are uniquely beautiful and always changing: just like life itself! The Rossbrand is a magical spot offering new perspectives but insights too. The Radstädter Hütte entices you in for rest and refreshment before heading back down into the valley.
