Winter hiking trail Three Lakes View on the Bürgeralpe

Open
The Drei-Seen-Blick circular hiking trail was created in the fall of 2015 directly at the summit of the Mariazell Bürgeralpe and can be walked with snowshoes in winter.
Crystal lake view

The crystal lake was built in 2011 as an extension of the snowmaking system. The pond comprises a volume of 40,000 m³ of water. Thus, together with the adjacent forest lake, the Bürgeralpe has a total of 60,000 m3 of water storage at its disposal.

Lake Erlaufsee view

Lake Erlaufsee is located 3 km northwest of Mariazell at 827 m above sea level on the border between Styria and Lower Austria. This clear mountain lake with drinking water quality provides a special excursion pleasure with many leisure activities.

Hubertussee view

Created by the Krupp family, the lake is a popular excursion destination and a fishing water rich in fish. The Hubertussee is located about 15 kilometers northeast of Mariazell on the Lower Austrian-Styrian border in the "Walstern".

More information

You can ascend the Bürgeralpe quite comfortably with the cable car - you can find the exact operating times at: www.buergeralpe.at

You can also climb the Bürgeralpe on foot: the walking time from the center of Mariazell is about 1-1.5 hrs.

The ascent by car is unfortunately not possible!

Along the way you have an impressive view of the mountain panorama as well as the 3 lakes: Kristallsee, Erlaufsee and Hubertussee.

From the top station we hike past the lookout to the Kristallseeblick - then on to the Erlaufseeblick and finally to the Hubertusseeblick until we return to our starting point.

For the ascent or descent to the Mariazell Bürgeralpe we can use the new 8-seater gondola "Bürgeralpe Express" -

information at www.buergeralpe.at

The hiking trail is not groomed in winter, but the beautiful winter landscape can be explored on snowshoes.

Here you can find a blog report by Fred Lindmoser from the hike incl. video!

At the beginning or at the end of the tour a detour at the cozy Edelweißhütte should not be missed!
