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