Description

From Hochstadel bothy at 1780m proceed from the car park in a westerly direction through Unholdalm to the junction at the fountain, where steep path No. 218 (Rudnigweg) proceeds up to the summit of the Hochstadel at 2681m.


The Hochstadel is a summit in the Lienz Dolomites which is relatively easy to tackle. At the Hochstadel summit, a breath-taking panoramic view across Oberes Drautal, Gailtal, the Lienz valley floor, through to the Glockner-, Venediger- and Kreuzeck groups, the Lienz Dolomites, Gailtal Alps and the Carnic Alps in the south, awaits. The panoramic view deems it worthy of its nickname, "King of Oberes Drautal’.
