The 6-lake hike
is a dreamlike hike to mountain lakes and huts in one of the most beautiful alpine areas in Europe.
At the beginning of the hike you come to the Krallersee, a dark shimmering moor lake that lies at the foot of the Lawinenstein. Then the path continues to the Großsee, below the Schneiderkogel, and to the romantic Märchensee. Further to the east you hike to the Tauplitzsee.
Shortly before the Steirersee, a detour to the "Steirerseebankerl" is recommended. The magnificent view of the Sturzhahn and the blue-green shimmering Steirersee is impressive. By the way, the Sturzhahn was once the climbing mountain of Heinrich Harrer.
After a short rest, we continue past the Steirersee huts in the direction of Steirersee, which you can hike along the south or north shore (surefootedness required!).The last lake is the Schwarzensee, which is not black at all.
Return to the starting point via meadow paths or the asphalt road on the high plateau.
It is not necessary to hike the whole tour. You have the possibility to shorten the hike at any time.
Strollers and wheelchair users:
Due to the asphalted and gravelled plateau road, short hikes on the Tauplitzalm are also suitable for baby carriages and wheelchairs!
