Route description

This hike starts at Pirklalm at the top of Hüttendorf Pruggern (the cabin village above Pruggern). Start the hike by following the hiking path No 100 westwards. This trail is relatively flat and leads you through the forest to beautiful, small alps. From time to time the forest thins out and you can enjoy the panormic view across Ennstal to Dachstein mountain (2995m), the highest mountain of Styria. Make sure to not miss the branch-off to path No 25 to Luitpoldhof.

 

After passing Luitpoldhof, the path narrows until you reach another asphalt road after Seewigtalhütte. Follow this road to the left until you reach lake "Steirischer Bodensee".

 

When you arrive at the lake, you have the choice between two restaurants. "Forellenhof" serves fresh trouts and offers a nice patio where you can enjoy the view across the little lake.

 

In 2012 Lake "Steirischer Bodensee" was rewarded being the second-most beautiful place in Styria.
