This snowshoe walk leads through the wild, romantic Tschamintal valley, where the Tschaminbach river babbles happily and the winter’s countryside can be enjoyed to the full. The Rechter Leger clearing is a fabulous place to stop off for a rest in winter, and boasts box-seat views of the Grasleitentürme towers and the Tschaminspitzen peaks.

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour begins in St. Zyprian and leads over the Traunwiesen meadows up to the start of the Tschamin Valley. Carry on to the Rechter Leger, passing the Schwarzer Letten and Hoher Steg springs and the Schaferleger, a particularly beautiful spot to stop off for a break. If you turn off to the left just before the Leger, you will come to a waterfall. The return route leads along  the Tschaminbach river, onto the other side of the valley and back to your set-off point.
