Back up to the heights: Hiking on the Saualpe, the gentle "antipole" to the rugged Karawanken on the Panoramaweg Südalpen
This stage of the Panoramaweg Südalpen leads from the Griffner Berg along a gentle ridge past the village of Pustritz to the 900-year-old Gasthaus Petuschnig in St. Leonhard on the Saualpe (trail nr. 338). The hike continues over the Kostmannkogel and the blast furnaces to the timberline. Here you leave the ridge and cross below the Speikkogel towards the Wolfsberger Hütte but turn right at a crossroads and soon reach the Pöllinger Hütte.
