Tour on the Tauplitzalm - Accessible for Prams

Closed
An easy walk for families, children, seniors and all those who are comfortable on the move - on the sunny plateau of the Tauplitzalm, along lakes, through blooming mountain meadows, with magnificent views and yet always safely on well-maintained paths.
On this tour, the diverse alpine experience of the Tauplitzalm awaits you in a light version: you walk along the sunny plateau on well-built and safe paths that can also be mastered with baby carriages and wheelchairs. The natural beauty all around - mountain lakes, magnificent views, meadows full of alpine bushes, gentians, hellebores and rock carnations - can be seen along the way.

If you stop now and then, you can enjoy the unique alpine landscape to your heart's content.

More information

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

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

You walk from the parking lot on the Tauplitzalm in the direction of Hollhaus. In front of the Hollhaus, a gravel path leads west in the direction of Lawinenstein. After going around the Krallersee lake, continue walking east past the Hotel Hierzegger. Stay on the asphalt road and hike across the high plateau past the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift in the direction of Steirersee.

Near the mountain station is a small mountain church. The church's striking gable shape is comparable to a mountain.

Shortly before the Steirersee, the path branches off to the left to the Steirerseebankerl. It is worth taking a break here, because the view of the legendary Sturzhahn, which mountaineering icon Heinrich Harrer first climbed, is magnificent.

If you like, you can walk down to the Steirerseehütten to fortify yourself with a good alpine snack.

Back to the starting point is then again the same way over the plateau.

 

Wer sich in der guten Almluft bewegt, bekommt Appetit – auf der Tauplitzalm gibt es mehrere Einkehrmöglichkeiten mit steirischer Gastfreundschaft.
There are plenty of free parking spaces available at the valley station of the 4-seater chairlift and at the parking lot on the Tauplitzalm.
