Insider Tip: SUN RISING JOURNEY
with the sun train to the SPEIERECK MOUNTAIN
Actually, I am not a supporter of getting up early in the morning. I am more the type who likes to turn off his alarm clock in the morning, but for certain experiences, even I (not a morning person) push myself to get up earlier.
Said and done. At 5:00 o'clock I was ready for the sun train in St. Michael. Everything was dark and surrounded by a certain peace, which you only can experience early in the morning.
By sun train we started our way up to the Speiereck mountain, still surrounded by darkness and quietness. Only the lights of the onnenbahncable car could be recognized.
Arrived at the Speiereck we went to the Peterbauerkreuz (summit cross) while the sun got brighter and brighter from minute to minute. Finally arrived at the Peterbauerkreuz where we all waited patiently for the sun to show up behind the mountains. When the sun finally came up, the whole mountain turned into an orange-golden light, which was unbelievably beautiful.
Even though there were a lot of people it was a very quiet, relaxing feeling and you could feel the energy of the morning glow. Everybody enjoyed the sunrise in his own way.
After this unique experience we went to the Peterbaueralm (mountain hut), where we got a big breakfast with fresh bread, self-made jam, lungauer honey, sausages and cheese, self-made cake and much more.
Saturated and with inner peace, I drove done againg by cable car to St. Michael. While I drove down, I was fascinated by the wonderful and lovely panorama of the Speiereck mountain.
The sun rising journey was an unforgettable experience which I think nobody should miss in their life or at least during a day in our beautiful Lungau region.
