Wild waters and quiet lakes

From Schladming to the impressive Riesachsee lake

The water is at the centre of this beautiful and varied hike, which can be walked in stages. The start in Schladming leads along the Talbach into the Untertal. Cool freshness surrounds the visitors along the way and again and again there are huge waterfalls and a pleasant drizzle is welcome refreshment on hot days. The route continues over gentle meadows into a protected moor landscape, which is unique and also offers views of the mountains.

The last stage leads over an exciting path, ladders and paths as well as a suspension bridge through the so-called "Höll" to the Riesachsee - a real jewel of nature - and the name should not deceive, because nature shows itself here from a heavenly beautiful side. This path is simply a blessing for body and soul - you get to know the Talbach as an impressive waterfall as well as a fascinating brook that seeks its way into the valley. A worthwhile destination for the whole family! 

The Riesachsee can also be reached by baby carriage - a wide forest path is ideal for this, leading to this scenic treasure in the Schladminger Tauern.
