There, leave the road and, along the stream, climb on the paved path uphill until you reach the Lettner Hof after several bends. Once there, following the sign number 39, turn right and then keep straight and hike through the forest. After a short hike you get to the signpost for the “Gailer Hof” which is the endpoint of your ascent on path number 39.
