Destination

Toll station of the Tauplitzalm alpine road or valley station Mitterstein gondola lift

Turn-by-turn directions

The ascent to the valley station of the gondola lift is either with your own car or with the ski bus of the Tauplitzalm Alpine Road.

Already the ride with the 8-seater gondola offers the first views into the valley of Bad Mitterndorf, to the Grimming and Dachstein, and over the ski area of the Tauplitzalm.

After getting off at the top station, hike straight down into a hollow and follow the blue signs. Past the valley station of the summit lift, the path leads on the right side of the lift to the summit of the Lawinenstein at 1,965 meters above sea level.

From near the summit cross you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Grundlsee, the Tote Gebirge, the Grimming and the Ennstal.

Afterwards, the same path leads back again.

Past the gondola mountain station and to the left of the T-bar lift, the trail descends into a hollow to the rope connection lift. At the edge of the ski slope the path leads up to the Kriemandlhütte.

After a pleasant stop, return to the gondola lift.
