On the hike you will encounter the many possibilities on the wintry Tauplitzalm. The groomed hiking trails are also used as feeders to the shelters and self-catering huts, so you can expect to see the odd skidoo or piste machine.

The plateau is very clear, so personal variants can be chosen in the course of the hike.

Author’s recommendation

The hike can be started from the parking lot on the Tauplitzalm or from the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift.

Destination

is the starting point

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.

The hike takes you eastwards along a groomed track for snow groomers. After the Grazerhütte, check whether there is a track leading further in the direction of the Steirerseehütten. 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. The trail leads next to the lift track 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.

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.
