Start is at the top station of the Markbachjoch cable car. Turn right then after a few metres left onto the downhill road towards Penning. Pass the Markbachjoch chapel and the Fleckl and Schlafbichl Farms.
The road takes you to the tiny village of Penningdörfl. Follow signs to Niederau via the Rothenau Farm.
The walks takes approx. 2.5 hrs.
