The Pletzachkogel is actually the only summit cross to be found in the Kramsach municipality. The views over the Inn Valley, the Kramsach lake plateau, Rattenberg, the Alpbach Valley and towards the Wilder Kaiser to the east is breathtaking.

The hike starts at the Sonnwendjochbahn (defunct chairlift) car park in Kramsach. Take the path to the right of the meadow towards Kaltes Wasserl. Turn left, after a few minutes walk you reach the beautiful spot named Herrgottstein. Continue along the path (possibility to branch off to the Postalm) to the Pletzachgatterl. There you leave the forest and reach the beautiful alpine meadows of the Pletzachalm (not managed!). Continue along the trail past the alpine pastures to a hill, where the trail branches off to the right across the meadow towards the Pletzachkogel. Allow approx. 2.5 hours to walk to the top and another 30 minutes for the last few metres to the summit.

Return route:

For the way back, you have a choice. Either via Klosteralm and a trail down to Kaltes Wasserl and from there back to the starting point. Or simply take the same route back down to the valley.

Eat & drink:

At the starting point, there's a refreshment option at Liftstüberl Kramsach. Other nearby options include Hotel Gappen or Hotel Jagdhof in Kramsach.
