More information

The best way to get to Altaussee is to plan with google.at/maps.
Starting from the Loser Alm, you reach the Loser summit (1,838 meters) in about 1.5 hours. On this small plateau plateau you have an almost unlimited panoramic view of the peaks of the Tote Gebirge, almost the entire Salzkammergut, Grimming, Dachstein, Niedere and parts of the Hohe Tauern.

After a short descent to Loserboden and up again through a belt of mountain pines, you reach Hochanger (1,837 meters).

On the way to Greimuth you will probably reach one of the most famous natural phenomena on the Loser - the Loserfenster. The several meters high rock gate forms the picturesque frame for panoramic views of the Schönberg and the landscape around the Gschwandalm and the Schoßboden, which stretches under a huge rocky cliff.

Continue up behind the Augstsee lake to the saddle between Atterkogel and Greimuth. Keeping to the left, you cross a small field of mountain pines before reaching the summit pasture. The Greimuth (1,871 meters) offers views of the mighty and steep north face of the Loser.

From the Greimuth you continue to the Gschwandsattel, here you can already clearly see the summit pyramid covered with many mountain pines. At the Bräuning Zinken (1,899 meters) you are rewarded for the ascent with a magnificent panoramic view. Via the Bräuning Alm you return to the starting point.

This round can also be done in several stages and adapted in its length depending on your condition.

Stop for refreshments at the mountain restaurant Loser-Alm or at the Loserhütte. 
Free parking is available at the Loser Alm.  Please note the toll on the Loser!
