Nestled in the foothills of the Wiener Alps, the Hohe Wand derives its name, meaning "High Wall", from the steep rock faces on its southern side. You can trek along an 8km high plateau stretching from the Plackles peak in the southwest to the Wandeck in the northeast. The plateau boasts pleasant mountain inns and Alpine huts, as well as a spectacular "Skywalk" observation platform jutting out from the rocks.
