Below the chairlift you hike up a slope to the top station of the chairlift. Here you are already at 1,885 meters above sea level. Continue over a wide ridge, first slightly descending, and then half-left again rising to the highest point of the Lawinenstein.
The 1,965 meter high summit is a flat plateau that rises like a balcony above the Ausseerland Salzkammergut.
Falling down is no danger there, you can look relaxed. And you should, because you don't have such a great nature cinema every day. The mighty Grimming, the glaciated Dachstein massif, the rugged stone walls of the Tote Gebirge, the Niedere Tauern, the Grundlsee and the most beautiful lake plateau of the Tauplitzalm.
From the train station Tauplitz it is about 20 minutes walk to the valley station of the 4-seater chairlift.Directly at the valley station is the bus stop.
By roadThe journey to Tauplitz is best planned with google.at/maps. From there you can take the 4-seater chairlift to the high plateau.
By car, you can get to the Tauplitzalm from Bad Mitterndorf via the Tauplitzalm Alpine Road (toll).
ParkingThere are plenty of free parking spaces available in Tauplitz and on the Tauplitzalm.
