The almost square, 15 m high control room has three floors. It was built of larch wood and opened in 2013. A magnificent panoramic view of the entire Ausseerland, the mountains of the Enns Valley, the Dachstein, the Postalm area and the Tote Gebirge is worth the climb to lofty heights. Not far from the lookout, a viewing platform was built in a southerly direction, following the markings. From here you can have a bird's eye view of the town of Bad Aussee.

Magnificent view of Lake Altaussee and Grundlsee, as well as the towns of Altaussee, Bad Aussee and Grundlsee and the surrounding mountains all the way to the Dachstein massif.

Parking lot Gimpelinsel

Turn-by-turn directions

After crossing the small bridge to the Stögermühle, turn left along the houses, then between the houses to the right up to the jump area of the former "Bildstein" ski jump. A metal bridge leads over it.


After the ascent through a somewhat steeper part of the forest, you reach the group of houses on Hanischbühel. Above them, take the promenade path, which leads you to the right to the gravel path "Sattelweg", which you follow uphill. Soon you cross the asphalted "Hennermannwaldstraße" which leads from Grundlsee to Altaussee. Cross this road and continue hiking uphill to the "Gratschner" estate.

Continue uphill to a hairpin bend, hike uphill in the forest and reach the group of houses "Lamesberg", and further up the settlement on the saddle.After having crossed a farmstead, you will find yourself at the end of the Sattel road.Follow it to the left and after about 150 meters you will reach the ascent path to the Tressenstein.

At the beginning the path is easy and later it becomes steeper and takes you to the top of the Tressenstein.

 

Descent: The same way back to the saddle, from Gasthaus Trisselwand either back to Bad Aussee or the saddle trail down to Altaussee, or the asphalt road to Grundlsee.From the villages of Altaussee and Grundlsee a bus transfer to Bad Aussee is possible.

Author’s map recommendations

Hiking maps are available at the information offices in Ausseerland.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
