The Hochschwab is the highest mountain in the Hochschwab Group in Styria, in the east of Gesäuse National park. The Hochschwab group is a karstified plateau, mostly without vegetation. The Plateau drops down to the south with a steep approximately 300 meter tall and two kilometer wide rock face. Typical for a karstic rock formation are its caves all over the massif, the most famous one being the Rauenmauerhöhle.
