Route description

Lake Weissensee
Lake Weissensee

From the east end of Neusach you keep following the signs in the direction of Ronacherfels. The first part of the tour is composed of a partially asphalted road and a wide dirt road. Therefore, the path is suitable for families with children or prams (at least until you get to Ronacherfels). After appr. 25 minutes you'll reach Ronacherfels. Here, at the Waterfront Hotel, you'll have the possibility to have a meal and/ or a drink. Leaving the Ronacherfels behind, you'll continue the tour on a forest path. After 35 minutes you'll pass an unstaffed refuge hut. Adjacent to it you'll find a spring (Tschöllankofel), which might come handy on hot days for refreshment. Just after a few minutes you'll reach the final destination of the tour, the Kleine Steinwand. From there you'll head back to the starting point.

Variations

Variant 1: 

From the Kleine Steinwand carry on further eastwards via the Hohe Steinwand, where one can enjoy a wonderful view on the lake and, on the opposite side, the dark Lakawände. Then continue through the camping site along the east lakeside until you reach the Dolomitenblick, which is facilitated with a shipping pier. Both sites will serve meals and drinks. You can hop on a liner and head back to Neusach or Techendorf.

 

Variant 2:

If you do not wish to hike back to Neusach, you'll have the chance to take a liner at Ronacherfels instead. Liners operate the whole day on the lake.
