Zdarsky-Berg Muckenkogel (Gipfel)

Mountain summit, Scenic lookout


The 1,248 m high Muckenkogel above the medieval monastery of Lilienfeld attracts with alpine pastures, forest and waterfalls - as well as well-marked hiking trails. If you like, you can take the comfortable chairlift ride to the top station. The best views are guaranteed: From Klösterpunkt - the highest point of the Muckenkogel - the view extends to the four surrounding monasteries of Lilienfeld, Göttweig, Melk and Herzogenburg.

The Lilienfelder Hütte and the Almgasthaus Billensteiner cater to hikers, walkers, climbers and mountain bikers - as does the Traisnerhütte. With its location on the 1,313 m high Hinteralm, it is the highest hut in Lilienfeld.

Gutenstein Alps, Lilienfeld

Good to know:
In 1905, Mathias Zdarsky held the first gate race in alpine skiing history on the Muckenkogel. Until today the mountain reminds of this historic event: On the one hand the Mathias Zdarsky Panorama Trail runs as a circular route from the mountain station via Muckenkogel and Hinteralm and back via Klosteralm. On the other hand, Mathias Zdarsky's most important inventions are presented on the theme trail of the Mathias Zdarsky inventors' path - using models true to the original.
