Turn-by-turn directions

The hike is started at the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift or at the parking lot on the Tauplitzalm.

We hike in an easterly direction towards the Steirersee. From the Steirerseebankerl you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Sturzhahn and the Steirersee.

Return to the right in the direction of Grazerhütte and at the foot of Traweng to the snow-covered Tauplitzsee. Next to the lift track we go up towards the Naturfreundehaus and back to the starting point.

There are plenty of opportunities to warm up and have a snack on this hike.

General 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!
