A bench with a magnificent view and a special kind of alpine bush await you on this tour: In early summer, the meadows on the Tauplitzalm are transformed into a sea of alpine flowers, where purple alpine bush blooms by the millions. But also velvety blue gentian, hellebores, rock carnations, globe flowers, anemones and wild thyme peek out from between the stones at the edge of the path. Heartfelt sights await you wherever you look.

Destination

Mountain station 4-seater chairlift Tauplitzalm or parking lot at Tauplitzalm

Turn-by-turn directions

Start at the parking lot or at the 4-seater chairlift. If you start at the parking lot, turn right a few meters after the barrier and follow the meadow path in an easterly direction. At the Tauplitzsee lake you will reach the asphalt road and follow it until you reach the Sterngassl.

There you turn left to the Steirerseebankerl and reach your destination. The popular Bankerl, where a rest is offered. From here you have a great view of the legendary Sturzhahn, the favorite climbing mountain of Heinrich Harrer, who was also the first to climb it - over the 200 m high west face. Also the view to the turquoise blue Steirersee, with its two islands, is simply fantastic.

 

A stop at the Steirersee huts, a little below the Steirerseebankerl, is always worthwhile. Either follow the narrow trail down to the huts, or hike back a short distance and walk along the gravel road to the huts.

You can also return to the starting point via the meadow path, or you can follow the asphalt road.

 

If you walk on the road, the hike is very nice to walk with a stroller.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
