EITHER, OR. Direttissima via the steeper path from the mountain rescue house or leisurely from the Grimmingblick inn over soft alpine pastures distillery and Neues Plannerkreuz. Just as you like. The goal is always THE LAKE. And that is always magical.
Also you can go to the old Plannersummit or to the Summit Plannerknot.

Plan your tour in advance, taking into account walking time, route length, altitude difference, danger spots and weather forecast.Together is much more beautiful and at the same time safer in the mountains.
Do not go alone, if possible, and adapt the tour to the ability of your group.
Let them know where you are going and when you want to be back. Also sign hut or summit books.
Turn back in good time if the weather deteriorates. If you get caught in a thunderstorm, do not stay on the summit or ridge and stay away from individual trees. Wait out the storm, if possible in a crouching position.
Stay on the marked trails and remember to close pasture fences again.
Getting up the trail is only half the battle. Stay alert, especially on the descents, to make it back to the valley safely.In case of emergency, keep calm and call the mountain rescue on 140. If you have no reception, take out the sim card and dial 112.
If you encounter cows: It is best to pass above the herd with at least 50 meters distance. Stay calm, don't make any frantic movements and don't run away. Do not imitate cow sounds and do not try to pet the animals. A stick and loud shouting can often make the animals turn back in an emergency.
If you are a dog owner: Clarify before the hike if you have to cross a pasture. Keep your dog on a leash and make sure he stays calm. If a cow attacks, let the dog off the leash immediately. Never pick him up to defend him.
You can get detailed information on "Safe Mountain Hiking" from the Alpine Club. At www.alpenverein.at you can inform yourself comprehensively about it.
Garbage on meadows and paths can not smell mountain and valley. Please take it with you. Agriculture and forestry are important partners for Berg und Tal. They allow you to walk and drive on many of their paths. Be aware that only good cooperation will guarantee your recreational enjoyment in the future.

Start from the mountain rescue house on a steeper ascent, where flowers line the path and spruce and pine stand side by side. Halfway up, turn left to a pond. The detour is worthwhile. Take a deep breath and gather strength for the final spurt, because after about 10 minutes you will reach the Plannersee.
If you prefer the more leisurely route, then start at Gasthof Grimmingblick and hike along the new gravel path in the direction of Panoramasee. Shortly before you reach the lake, turn left onto a path that leads past the New Planner Cross and up to the Planner Lake. Once you have arrived at your destination, you will find enchanting places for an enjoyable rest, directly at the clear mountain lake. Linger and enjoy and then perhaps hike further up to the ridge.
