Rote Wand with Tyrnauer Alm


Hike from the Teichalm via the Tyrnaueralm up to the majestic Rote Wand - with special flora and "our" ibexes.

The hike up to the gentle Tyrnaueralm starts directly at the Teichalmsee. The hike can therefore be easily combined with a round through the Teichalmmoor or a visit to one of the excursion destinations around the lake. Up to the Tyrnauer Alm the trail is quite easy and a path for the whole family. If you don't want to go any further, you can stop at the Tyrnauer Hütte. There the "Alm-Erich" entertains his guests with the accordion and in addition there is a savory snack. The further way to the Rote Wand requires surefootedness and good shoes! The Rote Wand is a rocky outcrop facing southeast, the red coloring of the rock can best be admired in the morning sun. The majestic rock is home to chamois and ibex, which can be observed along the way with a little luck.
