More information

We start our hike at the parking lot at Lake Erlauf and first follow the circular path around the lake, after a short time we branch off to the right from the circular path of Lake Erlauf and hike over the Wurzenkogel and over the Bodenbauereck to the middle station. Here we already have eye contact with the summit of the Gemeindealpe. On a nicely marked path we reach the Terzerhaus. At the top we walk a short distance to the summit cross, before we fortify ourselves with a well-deserved snack in the Terzerhaus before the descent.

Afterwards we hike the same way back to the middle station and over the Sonnwendkogel to Mitterbach, where we arrive directly at the valley station of the chairlift. To get back on a hiking trail, we march a short distance through the Maierpark to the B 20, here we branch off to the right, follow the B 20 for a few minutes and then branch off to the right onto the hiking trail to Lake Erlaufsee. Here we walk a large part along the Erlauf on a beautiful forest path and reach the parking lot at the Erlaufsee again in about 1 hour.

If we are too tired for the valley hike, we can also take the chairlift down to the valley.

Operating hours of the chairlift: www.gemeindealpe.at

For the very brave among us, the Moutaincarts are waiting! On a 4.6 km long road we drive down from the middle station to the valley!
