Take the Aupromenade along the stream until you reach the Stanglwirt inn, then head towards the Kaisergebirge mountain range/Hüttling (around 1 hour to reach Hüttling, the starting point of the Kaiserkrone) or you take the "Hiking bus Hüttling" directly to the hiking starting point.
It is a day car park, which means that no ticket can be purchased for several days. The parking ticket is therefore only valid on the day of issue! It is a public car park from May to October. During the winter months from November to April the car park is not attended. During this time the use is at your own risk! Camping and permanent parking is prohibited on this car park. (Vehicles that are parked illegally will be reported to the police and towed.)
