Ganz netter kleiner Spaziergang bei Riezlern - ist der Burmiweg, der auch schon in einer anderen Strecke beschrieben ist. Haben wir am Abend unserer Anreise gemacht und dafür prima.

Sehr schöne Tour. Haben spontan noch eine Bergfahrt zur Kanzelwand angehangen und dort einen Spaziergang um den See zur Roten Wand.
