Route Description for Themenwanderung Bergmähderweg Hike

Start your hike across from the Gasthof Thanner, a popular hotel with a good restaurant. Follow the steep small path up through the first field. At this point, you can already see some beautiful wildflowers.

Go through a gate and continue slightly to the right along a road. There are lots of benches along the way, inviting you to take a short break and enjoy the amazing view. Always follow the yellow signs saying “Bergmähderweg” and “Kolmhaus”.

After the last house, the trail leads into the woods, a beautiful sight on hot summer days. Here you can choose if you stay on the gravel road or take some steep shortcuts all the way up to Kolmhaus. Keep an eye out for unique flowers and small rivers along the way up.

The path is steep here, so pace yourself. The last 800 m of the walk, while still steep, feels fairly flat compared to the initial path through the forest.

To return, turn back and follow the way you came, sticking to the signs to Brandberg.
