Summary

The climbing areas are located on the way to the beautiful Bärenschütz gorge.

Description

The village of Mixnitz is the starting point for a popular hiking area (including the peaks Hochlantsch and Rote Wand) and a bunch of crags up the valley of the Mixnitzbach (including the well known Bärenschützklamm, a gorge).

Access issues

Some crags (Schwaigerkamm, Brunntal) can only be accessed through the Bärenschützklamm, a gorge with a steep track. It's only opened from 1 May to 31 October, and there is a fee of about €5 for entering the gorge.

Due to a rockfall in 2020 the Bärenschützklamm remains closed for 2022 for renovation work! (see forum entry Bärenschützklamm closed for details and updates)

Approach

🚉 local trains to station Mixnitz-Bärenschützklamm -- follow the yellow hiking guideposts to Bärenschützklamm. It's a walk of about 45min to reach the upper most point of the paved road/parking lot, where the inn GH Zur Bärenschützklamm is located. There starts the actual ascent to the climbing cliffs (variing, depending where you wanna climb).

there is parking lots (47.3333, 15.3692) next to the paved road to Bärenschützklamm . Can be very crowded though on nice summer days.

Where to stay

  • guesthouses "Zum Guten Hirten" and "Steirischer Jockl"
