Heart-stirring: Winter hikes on Die Tauplitz


The perfectly maintained winter hiking paths on Die Tauplitz are truly spectacular: 360° panoramic views spanning hundreds of mountain peaks, lots of snow and, if the weather cooperates, brilliant sunshine all day long

Tauplitzalm village is car-free in winter. High in the mountains, the clocks tick to a different beat – in time with the rhythms of nature itself. One day spent on Die Tauplitz can be as beneficial as a long weekend.

Brilliantly sunny, panoramic views, clean air

Our winter hiking paths lie above the tree line – at elevations between 1650 and 1965 m above sea level. If the weather cooperates, you can hike in bright sunshine all day long. Die Tauplitz is also famous for its 360° panoramic views spanning hundreds of Alpine peaks: a truly spectacular sight! The clarity of the ice and snow, endless skies and clean winter air – on Die Tauplitz, your mind is liberated and you sense what freedom truly means. 

2 touring tips for everyone wanting to explore without skis.

Winter hiking on the Lawinenstein summit

You can enjoy unbeatable panoramic views from the Lawinenstein, which rises like a balcony above the Ausseerland - Salzkammergut and marks the center of the region. This easy tour to the summit via a nicely maintained hiking loop treats you to unforgettable landscapes. Here are the facts

Ride the gondola to the top of the Mitterstein

After getting off the lift, follow the blue signs for 2.5 km along a hiking loop leading to the Lawinenstein summit cross. There, at 1965 m, enjoy magnificent scenery that encompasses Dachstein glacier, the mighty Grimming and the mountains of the Totes Gebirge. And then return to the gondola before continuing to the Kriemandlhütte, a very traditional hut (also the highest ski hut in Styria, incidentally) to enjoy well-earned refreshments. 

Round-trip gondola ride*: adults € 24.- children € 16.-
Length: 2.5 km path, well-maintained and signposted
In good mountain weather highly recommended, if in doubt please phone:

Hiking through snowy Tauplitzalm village

The village at 1650 m above sea level is a small world unto itself, a place of incredible charm and authentic energy. Here, you can take a deep breath and sense the power of nature as you explore a 5 km long hiking loop. As you walk from hut to hut, you are likely to be astonished over and over. This small mountain village has grown naturally over the years, a place full of surprises with rustic huts, pleasant restaurants and some 1000 guest beds. Furthermore, Tauplitzalm village is car-free in winter – much to the joy of many guests and children. And here, high up on the mountain, is also a great place to party.

Ride the Tauplitz quad chairlift into the heart of car-free Tauplitzalm village

 Length: 5 km, well-maintained and signposted hiking loop
Round-trip ride on the quad chairlift: adults € 20.- children € 12.-

Tip: the small mountain church on the Tauplitzalm – with colorful stained-glass windows and beautiful reflexes of light inside whenever the sun is shining. Here, you can literally hear the silence. The strikingly steep form of the gable is modeled on the Sturzhahn, a mountain on the edge of the Tauplitzalm. It was first climbed by mountaineering icon Heinrich Harrer and is a popular summertime destination due to its alpine climbing tours.
