During these tour, you will drop down to Tauplitz, the charming village right next to the valley station of the quad chairlift, where you will discover hotels, guesthouses, inns, a grocery store, a village bakery as well as a dance paradise. Small, but truly special. There are four different options for hiking from the Tauplitzalm – the biggest lake plateau in Central Europe – down to the valley.

Destination

Tauplitz

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift on the Tauplitzalm. Right next to the station is the small mountain church. A visit is always worthwhile.

The hike continues across the high plateau in the direction of Steirersee. You should take the time for a short break at the Steirerseebankerl. The view of the Sturzhahn and the shining Steirersee is unforgettable.

 

At the Steirersee huts you have to decide whether you prefer to hike along the north side of the Steirersee or rather the south side. Surefootedness is required for all paths.

 

Hidden behind a small hill, you then reach the Schwarzensee. On the eastern shore of the lake, turn south onto trail no. 216. Over the so-called "giant" you go down towards Tauplitz.

Almost at the end of the path you reach the "Sagtümpel", it is a vauclus giant karst spring.

 

At the Gnanitzstraße then turn right in the direction of Tauplitz.

Author’s map recommendations

Hiking maps and free general maps are available in the information offices of the 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!
