Highlights of the tour

Fantastic hike crossing valleys with wonderful panorama on the surrounding world of mountains which is the Radstädter Tauern.

At the very beginning of the hike you can make a nice detour to the waterfall "Johanneswasserfall" (approximately 10 min. to walk - path Nr. 24).


An alternative to the "Hirschwandsteig" would be the Wildseesteig, path Nr. 702.


Trekking and mountain boots are recommendable because the most of the tour is on a hiking trail. If you want you also can take hiking sticks with you.
