On soft alpine meadows the hike continues towards the Steirersee. A short detour to the Steirersee-Bankerl is recommended. From there you have a great view of the Sturzhahn and the Steirersee.
The hike continues, depending on your preference, on the north or south side of the Steirersee. (surefootedness required!)
After the Steirersee you come to the Schwarzensee. From there the trail continues towards Leistalm and Interhütten. Down you go into the Nattern Graben and out of the valley along the idyllic Grimmingbach towards the Gnanitzalm.
After a refreshment in one of the two huts in the Gnanitzalm, you follow the gravel road and then the asphalt road to Tauplitz.
In summer the bus stops directly at the valley station. The 4-seater chairlift can be reached from Tauplitz train station in about 20 minutes on foot.
Getting thereThe 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.
