More information

The journey to Tauplitz is best planned with google.at/maps. From there you can take the 4-seater chairlift to the high plateau.

By car, you can get to the Tauplitzalm from Bad Mitterndorf via the Tauplitzalm Alpine Road (toll).

We start at the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift on the Tauplitzalm. Right next to the station is the small mountain church. A visit is always worthwhile.

The hike continues across the high plateau in the direction of Steirersee. You should take the time for a short break at the Steirerseebankerl. The view of the Sturzhahn and the shining Steirersee is unforgettable.

 

At the Steirersee huts you have to decide whether you prefer to hike along the north side of the Steirersee or rather the south side. Surefootedness is required for all paths.

 

Hidden behind a small hill, you then reach the Schwarzensee. On the eastern shore of the lake, turn south onto trail no. 216. Over the so-called "giant" you go down towards Tauplitz.

Almost at the end of the path you reach the "Sagtümpel", it is a vauclus giant karst spring.

 

At the Gnanitzstraße then turn right in the direction of Tauplitz.

 

The 4-seater chairlift to the Tauplitzalm is open from the end of June to the beginning of September.
There are enough parking spaces directly at the valley station of the 4-seater chairlift.
