Walking tour to the Steirersee and Schwarzensee lakes
A lovely tour that is not difficult. Enjoy a comfortable ride with the chairlift up to the Tauplitzalm. After your tour on the high plateau of the Tauplitzalm and descent to the Gnanitzalm on the eastern flank, you can arrange to be picked up from the Narzissenjet lift station at the barrier to the Gnanitzalm.
Kampl Circular Tour
Even if the name “Totes Gebirge” (Dead Mountains) conjures up a picture of a bleak landscape without any vegetation, you will be pleasantly surprised by the extent of the soft contours, open mountain woods and colourful alm pastures on the lower slopes around the foot of the mountains, particularly on the Styrian side.
Salzsteigweg -The Salt Trail Route
Starting at the Tauplitzalm in the Ausseerland, this wonderful tour leads you through the Enns Valley in the Lower Tauern (Niedere Tauern) mountains and then via the mountain pass near the Sölkpass into the Mur Valley, ending at the historic town of Murau.
The alpine circular tour on the “home mountain” of Altaussee, offering wonderful views into the distant High Tauern (Hohe Tauern) mountains, as well as to the Dachstein, the Tote Gebirge and the Salzkammergut.
The Six-Lake Tour on the Tauplitzalm
The Six-Lake tour on the Tauplitzalm induces a ‘high’ for mind and soul. You can reach the high plateau with its lakes – the most extensive of its type in Central Europe – effortlessly with the chair lift to the Tauplitzalm, lying at an altitude of 1650m above sea level.
Around the Altaussee Lake
One of the loveliest circular routes in the Salzkammergut is the shore walk around the Altaussee Lake. Splendid views to the Trisselwand, the Loser and the glaciers on the Dachstein massif turns this walk into an unforgettable experience. The large number of benches on the route means that it is ideally suited to families and older people. The water in the Altaussee Lake is also warm enough in high summer to offer the opportunity of a cooling swim and there are plenty of small beaches to entice you to stop and rest.
This is an attractive but demanding mountain tour to an outstanding peak. Inexperienced mountain walkers are likely to be caught out by the steep ascents and descents which are, in part, secured by cable hand holds. Sure-footedness and freedom from vertigo are indispensable requirements for this tour.
Lahngang Lakes and Pühringer Hütte
This is a long day tour in the Tote Gebirge for ‘beginners’. The Pühringer Hütte is also the starting point for extended high alpine tours in the Tote Gebirge, and an overnight stop for crossings from the Ausseerland into the Almtal in Upper Austria or over the Großen Priel into Hinterstoder.
This circular tour around the Dietrichskogel draws you into a fascinating journey through time, from the origins of salt mining in the Salzberg, to the present day in the Aussee region. There are 24 stopping points with sign boards describing features such as age-old mine workings, narrow trails from the Roman era or unusual ruined fortifications.
