You hike from the mountain station of the 4-seater chairban in an easterly direction, past the small mountain church
At the Naturfreundehaus, the trail goes slightly downhill to Lake Tauplitz and from there in a westerly direction to Lake Großsee. Visitors love to linger there to feed the quacking ducks.
Continuing on, you soon come to the romantic Märchensee - an emerald green natural gem. Immediately afterwards you arrive at the Öderntörl, a wide rocky crossing between Schneiderkogel and Traweng. Here you hike on trail no. 272 into a quiet valley and follow the narrow trail downhill to the Ödernalm huts, which are located at 1,210 m above sea level.
Surefootedness is required!
Continue now on the forest road along the Salzabach stream, which slowly rushes downhill and soothes your senses with its murmur. After four kilometers you branch off at the raking place onto another forest road. From here, follow the marked route to Bad Mitterndorf and into the town center.
From Bad Mitterndorf you can get back to Tauplitz by bus or train.
