Circular hike on the Terenbachalm
A great circular hike. The ascent along the ridge path is a little more challenging, but the reward is immediate as we hike along the ridge of the Terenbachalm.
- A2-Südautobahn, Abfahrt Mooskirchen
- Beim Kreisverkehr die 3. Ausfahrt (B70: Richtung Voitsberg, Köflach) nehmen.
- ca. 20 km bis nach Köflach fahren
- bei der ampelgeregelten Kreuzung rechts auf die B77 Richtung Gaberl abbiegen
- Im Ortsteil Krenhof Richtung Graden fahren (rechts halten)
- In Graden: Der Beschilderung zum Sattelhaus (ca. 13km) folgen
Once we reach the bull cross, we enjoy the idyllic alpine landscape before turning sharp right (path no. 547a) towards the Terenbachalm. We hike along the pasture fence on a direct path to the Terenbachalm. Here we have a more difficult ascent ahead of us. This leads us through a shady forest and after about 20 minutes of steep ascent, the path flattens out again and we make rapid progress. We enjoy the idyllic "Kammweg" and after approx. 1 ½ hours from our starting point, we reach the statue of Christ on the Terenbachalm, which is approx. 100m from our path. Here we also meet trail no. 547, which would take us directly back to our starting point.
However, we stay on the ridge path and walk gently uphill over a soft carpet of Gemsheide on the "Schneid" of the Terenbachalm and are accompanied by alpine shrubs. We enjoy the idyllic view here above the tree line and after a short time see the summit cross of the Terenbachalm. After about an hour we come to the descent, which takes us to the Zeißmannhütte. Unfortunately, the hut is not staffed, but we should take a break here and enjoy the view. Good spring water is available from a natural fountain. The route back to the Sattelhaus takes us along the path marked 505. We follow the forest road, which takes us directly back to the starting point of our hike. After about 4 hours of hiking (including breaks and rests), we can end the day at the Sattelhaus.
