There are numerous trails leading up the mountain from various points around its base. Most merge to eventually end up at the summit, which for Schneeberg is named Klosterwappen. Along each trail is a hut for food and drink, with one or two also offering lodging.

The Ferdinand Mayer Weg, which begins on the south side of the mountain, takes about 2 hours to reach the summit (2076 m / 6811 ft). As mentioned, there are several trails around the base of the mountain, but the Ferdinand Mayer Weg provides an intermediate-level hike that at times requires some moderate rock-climbing and use of your hands.

For a more leisure hike, there is a rail line that leads up the mountain from the town of Puchberg am Schneeberg in the east-lying valley. The hike to the summit is approx. 1 hour from the train station.

Weichtalhaus is the starting point for accessing the Höllental (Hell Valley), which is home to the Stadelwandgraben. Located on the south side of Schneeberg, Stadelwandgraben contains the following climbs: Plattensymphonie (first climbed Aug. 2007), Des Kessels neue Kleider (first climbed Oct. 2006), Neuer Zimmerweg (first climb in Stadelwandgraben - 1906 - reopened with bolts, etc. Oct. 2005), Bruderherz (first climbed 2004), and Richterkante (first climbed in 1929, cleaned and bolted in 2005).

Climbing on this mountain may not be well-suited to beginners; however, moderate to expert (as you can see from the only-recently-ventured climbs listed above) climbs are abundant and provide great challenges as well as beautiful panoramas of the eastern most 2000-meter elevations of the Alps.




There are no points within 15 miles of this point.
