The hike starts in Niederthai at the car park Sennhof. From there you follow the always slightly rising forest path along the Horlachbach into the Horlachtal. After about an hour you reach the Larstigalm and walk comfortably past it. The path leads up a little steeper and then flat on to a bridge. There you either follow the forest path past the Klein Horlachalm and Groß Horlachalm or the narrow summer hiking trail directly in front of the bridge on the right through open terrain to the Schweinfurter hut. The hut is a very popular day trip destination, accommodation for hut hikers and starting point for easy and demanding hikes and high mountain tours. Even with the mountain bike the hut is very easy to reach. On the way back you can alternatively hike on Bergmaderweg. For this, you have to switch right over the stream shortly after the Larstigalm - beautiful view!
