SStarting from the Kanzelbahn mountain station, follow the signs (path no. 31) after a few meters, passing a reservoir in the direction of the Steinwenderhütte. The wide forest path leads to the Steinwenderhütte without any notable differences in altitude and is also suitable for families with prams.

From the Steinwenderhütte the further path (path no. 177) leads over a picturesque alpine meadow, ascending into the surrounding forests before the panoramic Schlossbauer Alm den view of the Villach - framed by the mountain ranges to the south such as the Karawanken and the Julian Alps. Alternatively, if you want, you can also climb up from the Steinwenderhütte to the "Steinernen Tisch" - once a resting place for hunters, forest workers and keepers - and then hike to the Schlossbauer Alm.

After the Schlossbauer Alm you cross another pasture - the Baumgartner Alm - which is used by cows in summer is besieged. A few minutes later you reach the Kammerhütte.

Follow the road below the Kammerhütte (trail no. 41), descending slightly towards the Kanzelbahn mountain station until you reach the Turnerhütte junction. Over a few wooden steps you now descend somewhat more steeply to the Turnerhütte (path no. 43), which is no longer used as a refreshment stop. Continue along the road until you reach a large crossroads and then continue slightly uphill to the Pöllinger Hütte, the highest point of the tour.

The suggested tour leads on the right edge of the piste over a meadow trail to the Waldtratte and from there to the Sunn Alm the last stop at the Kanzelbahn mountain station.
