A stunning panorama at your feet: Poserhöhe Circular Trail.

Starting from the Hoteldorf Grüner Baum, a stiff climb takes you across the southern slopes to the Poserhöhe. A measure of sure-footedness, a sense of direction and stamina will certainly come in handy for coping with the larger altitude differences on this tour. However, it is well worth the effort when you behold the spectacular panorama that stretches from the valley head of the Kötschachtal, over the Tischler group’s glacier as far as the head of the valley near Böckstein and into the Gastein Valley. Those who don’t stop for refreshments on the Poserhöhe can do so in Café Gamskar on the way down. From there, a path across meadows and through a wood leads to the Gasteiner Höhenweg that then goes on towards Kötschachtal and the Hoteldorf Grüner Baum.
