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