The complete Padauner Kogel, seen from Vennspitze.

The Padauner Kogel is one of the classical tours in Padaun. Through hid small altitude difference (481 m) this tour can also be made in the afternoon or before lunch. But the size says notheing about its variation. From mythic forests to cliffs and a nice ridge, you will find all at the Padauner Kogel. With its 3 trails from Padaun, also nice round trips are possible. Only in winter time the Padauner Kogel is too steep and is dangerous through avalanches.
