Near the top station of the 4-seater chairlift, a visit to the mountain church is worthwhile.
By car, you can get to the Tauplitzalm from Bad Mitterndorf via the Tauplitzalm Alpine Road (toll).
On soft alpine meadows the hike continues towards the Steirersee. A short detour to the Steirersee-Bankerl is recommended. From there you have a great view of the Sturzhahn and the Steirersee.
The hike continues, depending on your preference, on the north or south side of the Steirersee. (surefootedness required!)
After the Steirersee you come to the Schwarzensee. From there the trail continues towards Leistalm and Interhütten. Down you go into the Nattern Graben and out of the valley along the idyllic Grimmingbach towards the Gnanitzalm.
After a refreshment in one of the two huts in the Gnanitzalm you follow the gravel road, and then the asphalt road, to Tauplitz.
