Osser Round Trip around the Teichalm


The ideal tour for all those who also want to take a look at the Teichalm from above. From the Osser summit at 1548 m you have wonderful views.

The trail starts on the Teichalm and leads via the Gerlerkreuz to the Angerwirt. From the Angerwirt, head out to the right in the direction of the Sommeralm. The last stretch to the Osser summit leads quite steeply up the forest. The view down to the Teichalmsee and further out to the Hochlantsch is all the more beautiful. The path down to GH Holzmeister leads steeply downhill in the high forest, now you can already see the "Schwoabauerkreuz", a well-known wayside cross on the Sommeralm.

Now turn left along the forest in the direction of the Teichalmsee lake. On the wide forest road, you reach the Sommeralm road at the Harrerhütte. On the other side of the road, the trail now leads out to the Teichalmsee lake. There, the wooden ox and the Teichalm moor are waiting to be visited and beautiful establishments for a stop.

The trail can be extended to include the descent down to the "Raabursprung".
