Long-distance hikes – indulging your wanderlust

pure freedom, clear air, soothing green countryside

The clear mountain air, verdant alpine meadows that soothe the soul, broad expanses of sky above your head: On a hike spanning multiple days, with every step you take you leave the daily grind farther and farther behind, while drawing ever closer to who you truly are, simultaneously able to enjoy life to the full in the midst of pristine nature

The liberating mountain feeling already begins in the valley. Leave your vehicle on the car park in Tauplitz, then enjoy an eco-friendly ride on the quad chairlift all the way up to idyllic Tauplitzalm village. As mountain personalities such as the Lawinenstein, Schneiderkogel, Traweng, Sturzhahn, Tragln and Totes Gebirge float past you, you will quickly sense: In this world high above the commonplace, the clocks tick more heedfully and in time with nature. And once you have hit the trail, leaving the high-tech, high-speed outside world far behind, you will gradually rediscover who you truly are. Physical, mental and spiritual regeneration all set in very quickly in the mountains and you will note that even just a few days here will be every bit as effective as a two-week vacation spent in some far-flung country. We are delighted to present the following four tours to you: 

Alpenblumen

Tauplitzalm – Hochmölbinghütte – Wurzeralm

The Tauplitzalm, with its six lakes, is the biggest lake plateau in Central Europe. It is here that you will begin your hike – across meadows where, in early summer, the purple rhododendron, velvety blue gentian, Carthusian pink and other alpine flowers bloom. 

  Beautiful alpine pastures and sparse larch forests alternate along this path. Imposing panoramic views spanning hundreds of alpine peaks, clean air and feelings of total freedom included. We recommend spending the night at the Hochmölbinghütte: Nestled in a sheltered cirque, it treats you to wonderful views of the Tauplitzalm. Well rested, the next morning you will be able to continue your hike to the Wurzeralm

Bergsee

Tauplitzalm – Salzsteigjoch – Hinterstoder

You will begin your hike next to the mountain terminal of the quad chairlift at the Tauplitzalm: Follow the path leading to the Steirersee and make a detour to the popular Steirersee-Bankerl, where you will be treated to a magnificent view of the legendary Sturzhahn, a peak first climbed by mountaineering icon Heinrich Harrer.

Northern Route: Bad Mitterndorf - Tauplitzalm

This hike begins in Bad Mitterndorf, taking you past Krungl and the famous “Kulm” ski jumping hill, to the village of Tauplitz (for refreshment opportunity). If your leg muscles need a bit of a break, simply hop on the quad chairlift (check the lift schedule ahead of time) and ride up to the high pastures.

– Stage 05

Tauplitzalm - Hochmölbinghütte

Your hike continues across the Tauplitzalm, the biggest lake plateau in Central Europe, home to six different lakes. Turn east, which will bring you to the Steirersee – passing through meadows where, in early summer, purple rhododendron, velvety blue gentian, Carthusian pink and other alpine flowers are in full bloom.

Next you will come to the Schwarzensee – its crystal-clear water and flat shoreline inviting you to refresh body, mind and soul. Your path will now lead you to the Totes Gebirge – with its karst landscapes, rocky crags and countless sinkholes, it represents quite a stark and beautiful contrast. At elevations ranging between 1400 and 1600 m above sea level, you will also hike through forests, a mix of pine, larch and spruce trees. We recommend overnighting at one of the hotels or huts on the Tauplitzalm, or at the Hochmölbinghütte...

Bad Mitterndorf – Tauplitzalm

This hike begins in Bad Mitterndorf, taking you past Krungl and the famous “Kulm” ski jumping hill, to the village of Tauplitz (for refreshment opportunity). If your leg muscles need a bit of a break, simply hop on the quad chairlift (check the lift schedule ahead of time) and ride up to the high pastures. 

Otherwise, hike past the swimming pool on path 275, across the Niederblas and through stretches of forest, until you reach the alpine saddle – from there, you are able to enjoy a beautiful view of the Steirersee. Continue to the left, somewhat downhill to the Steirerseehütten, huts that serve refreshments to hikers. Keeping in the same direction, you will now hike to the Tauplitzalm. A left turn will bring you to the Linzerhaus or continue straight, leading you to the village center and church – with its stained-glass windows and colorful reflexes of light, it provides a perfect place for inner reflection. From there, you are within quick reach of hotels providing overnight accommodations, dining establishments as well as the mountain terminal of the quad chairlift.

Mountain Lakes Trail
– Stage 16

Tauplitzalm - Gössl on Grundlsee

Continue from the church on the Tauplitzalm in an easterly direction, dropping down to the small Tauplitzsee, where you will make a left across flat alpine meadows to the Großsee, continuing to the small Märchensee, then to the Öderntörl, a wide alpine saddle between the Schneiderkogel (to the west) and the Traweng (to the east)

From the Öderntörl, a narrow trail now leads through sparse forested terrain down to the huts of the Ödernalm (elev. approximately 1250 m). From the Ödernalm, walk along the forestry road towards the mouth of the valley and next to the Salza until, after 4 km, you will come to a hut at the so-called “Rechenplatz”, where a forestry road branches off to the right. Now another 250 m towards the mouth of the valley, then slightly uphill on the forestry road which branches off to the right, taking you through an extended curve to the end of the road, where you are joined by the marked hiking path from Bad Mitterndorf which comes up from the left. Follow this path uphill to the right, bringing you to the Schneckenalm in 20 minutes

At the highest hut, you find the start of a wider path leading north, initially flat, then steeper, taking you down to the Gösslwiesen, crossing a forestry road twice along the way. From the Gösslwiesen, it is not much farther to the first houses and the Grundlsee. Keep right and it won’t take you long to reach the center of Gössl.
