Starting at the Gasthof Baumgartner, follow the hiking path 683. You will pass two springs and come to the first hut - the "Panier Hut". After approx. 30 min. you will reach the "Mitzl-Moitzl-Hütte" at 1,639 m. From this hut you can reach the area between Schwarzkogel and Mallestiger Mittagskogel directly at the state border in about 15 minutes. From there you follow the path 684 westwards to the summit of the Mallestiger Mittagskogel 1,801 m. The last 30 metres are not secured and you need to be free from giddiness be and sure-footed.

The descent follows the same route.

There is a parking area at the Baumgartnerhof - but we would advise you to park at the parking area of the castle Finkenstein below the Baumgartnerhof. However, this adds up 30 minutes of walking time.
