„Nomen est omen“ - Schönberg is like a pulpit offering a great view in a low mountain range between the peaks of Turnerkamp and Schwarzenstein. Beautiful is the sight of these two higher mountains, beautiful is the path to the alpine pasture, beautiful is the summit and beautiful is the panoramic view of the Ahrntal valley reaching to the Dolomites in the distance. Schönberg is situated at the southernmost point of a lateral mountain range dividing the Schwarzbach and the Mitterbach valleys. Another mountain which is well seen from the peak and is situated a bit higher above in the north is called Schafbretter, a perfect name disclosing the true form of the mountain, which looks like boards descending down to the timber line. Because of the danger of avalanches, mighty barriers were installed above the Schönbergalm.
