Teichalm - Round Trip with Moorlehrpfad

A leisurely round on the Teichalm in the Almenland Nature Park in Styria - with the Teichalmsee and with the moor nature trail.

This is the ideal tour for those who don't really want to "hike", but still want to experience the most famous part of the Almenland Nature Park! The tour starts on the Teichalm at the Holzochsen, the landmark of the beef region Almenland. Then it goes out over soft alpine pastures to the GH Holzmeister.  The trail also passes the Harrerhütte, the last alpine dairy in eastern Styria. Finally, a round around the lake and a walk on the newly designed Lärchenplanken-Schauweg through the Teichalmmoor. A beautiful trail without major climbs, but still with beautiful views and always near a place to stop for refreshments!


from the Teichalm to the Harrerhütte and from there back or

only around the Teichalmsee and through the high moor, this path is also suitable for baby carriages and wheelchairs.

ATTENTION: The path through the Teichalm moor is closed in winter, the path is expected to open again in April.
