Starting point for this challenging hike is Wiesen carpark. Here, you can either take a Hüttentaxi (taxi shuttle) to Johannishütte or walk up the broad driveway for about 2.5 hours. After the Johannishütte a narrow path leads towards "Mullwitzkees" to the Defreggerhaus at 2,964m. This section requires surefootedness and takes about 3 hours. The Defreggerhaus is the ideal starting point for mountain tours to the most 3,000m peaks of the Venediger group and an ideal starting point for guided tours to the Großvenediger (3,658m).
