At the Naturfreundehaus, the trail goes slightly downhill to Lake Tauplitz and from there in a westerly direction to Lake Großsee. Visitors love to linger there to feed the quacking ducks.
Continuing on, you soon come to the romantic Märchensee - an emerald green natural gem. Immediately afterwards you arrive at the Öderntörl, a wide rocky crossing between Schneiderkogel and Traweng. Here you hike on trail no. 272 into a quiet valley and follow the narrow trail downhill to the Ödernalm huts, which are located at 1,210 m above sea level.
Surefootedness is required!
Continue now on the forest road along the Salzabach stream, which slowly rushes downhill and soothes your senses with its murmur. After four kilometers you branch off at the raking place onto another forest road. From here, follow the marked route to Bad Mitterndorf and into the town center.
From Bad Mitterndorf you can get back to Tauplitz by bus or train.
From Tauplitz train station to the valley station of the 4-seater chairlift is about a 20-minute walk.The bus stop is located directly at the valley station.
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).
