Heulantsch-Round, Teichalm

This round tour of the peaks above the Teichalm is a real alpine tour for the whole family, always with a view and several places to stop for refreshments.

The Heulantsch loop connects the Sommeralm with the Teichalm. The highlight of this beautiful alpine round is the 1,473 m high Heutlantsch summit with its views: from the Plankogel over the Teichalm to the Hochlantsch. The tour is accessible early in the year and can also be done with snowshoes in winter. Several huts and inns along the way invite you to take a break.

The tour starts on the Teichalm, the centre of the nature park. There is a lot to see around the Teichalmsee, for example the landmark of the Almenland: the wooden ox, which stands for the ALMO beef production in the region. Right next to the lake is the moor nature trail, which leads around the Teichalm high moor; display boards explain the formation of the moor and the fauna and flora. The hike can also be combined with a visit to the Almerlebnispark climbing garden or a boat trip on the lake. And of course with a stop at one of the establishments on the lake.

For those who would like to go on a really big tour, the Heulantsch round can be combined with the Siebenkögel Sommeralm trail to form a Teichalm - Sommeralm summit circuit.
