Access to the starting point:
a) Drive to Dravograd, then continue to Maribor. When you arrive in Radlje ob Dravi, turn left at the junction between the Hofer and Lidl stores in the direction of the Radelj Pass and the centre of Radelj ob Dravi. Continue along the road that leads through the centre of the town (left Austria via Radlje Pass) and follow it to the parish church of St. Michael, where you will see red mountain signs along the road. Park in one of the car parks in Radlje ob Dravi, but be careful, as some car parks only allow parking for up to 2 hours.

b) From Maribor, follow the Drava Valley towards Dravograd, leaving the main road before Radlje ob Dravi, where the signs for this place direct you to the right. Continue past the cemetery, the health centre and the police station, and then you will see the red mountain signs on the right near the parish church. Park in one of the car parks in Radlje ob Dravi, but be careful as some car parks only allow parking for up to 2 hours.
Path description:
From the starting point, take the path in the direction of Župank and Kapunar, where you will first pass a signboard and the parish church of St. Michael, and a little further on you will pass the Rosenhof. The road you are climbing soon turns left, and just a few steps further on the signs direct you to a sharp right onto a narrower road, and from there you will immediately turn left onto the originally marked path. After a few minutes of climbing, we reach a dirt road, and we follow it to the right, bypassing the water tower on the lower right-hand side.

Continue towards Župank and Kapunar (slightly left unmarked path to Kapunar, leading west from Perkolica (600 m), a steeper marked path), where we quickly change from the dirt road to the asphalt road, and climb up it until we reach the NOB (National Liberation) memorial at the homestead Župank.

From the monument we return to the chapel, and then continue along the marked macadam road, from which we can enjoy beautiful views that stretch across the Drava to Pohorje and Karawanks, and with good visibility we can also see the Kamniško Savinjske Alps. Slightly higher up, a slightly shorter path joins us at the right turn from the left, which went straight into the forest at the water tower, and we continue along the road, where we are also guided by the signs for Kapunar.

The road quickly leads to the Ižek farm, from where we have a beautiful view of the still quite distant Kapunar. When the road passes a little further into the lane of a forest, it turns sharp left, and at a small crossroads it goes straight ahead. Go around the Pavli farm on the right hand side, and a few 10 steps further on, take a slight right onto cart track, which takes you into the forest. In the woods, take the cart track right onto a footpath, which will take you up to a dirt road in a few minutes.

Follow the road to the right, and at the next crossroads follow the signs for Kapunar. It is a relatively long walk along a dirt road, which you follow to a former guardhouse, now used by radio amateurs. From the guardhouse, where the registration box is located, continue sharp left in the direction of hut Kapunerhütte. Continue along the initially winding path, which crosses the slopes to the left, and then climbs crosswise to the western ridge of Kapunar, from where a fine view opens up towards Austria.
Continue left (right peak Kapunar 2 minutes) and descend along the boundary ridge to a small saddle between the two peaks of Kapunar.
From the saddle, where a slightly shorter path joins the border ridge before the radio-amateurs' hut, continue in the direction of hut Kapunerhütte. From the saddle, initially still walking along the ridge, the path then turns right to the Austrian side and descends in a few minutes to the aforementioned hut.
