The Tauplitzalm is known for its 360-degree panorama of hundreds of mountain peaks all around. The very best panoramic view is from the Lawinenstein, which rises like a balcony above the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut region and marks its center.
Distance 8 km
On this tour you can expect 360-degree panoramic views of hundreds of mountain peaks all around. You get this incomparable view for relatively little effort: Apart from a slope with 200 meters of altitude, you hike the Lawinenstein with relatively little effort.
What we observe most often at the Avalanche Stone? Open mouths, incredulous amazement, taking photos and smiling. A day on the Tauplitzalm is as effective as a long weekend!
