feelings of freedom on a lake plateau
This area of high pastures isn’t just a treat for the eyes, it also promises a colorful array of sporting challenges: Take a stroll with your pram or dog, splash about in the water, do something to develop those » hiker muscles« in your legs, or perhaps put your courage to the test on a fixed-cable climb.
High above the valley at 1650 m above sea level, the world is still as it should be. Here, you will live amid vibrant nature. Mountain lakes, countless peaks, rare alpine flowers such as daphne, globe daisies, gentian, rhododendron, and magnificent displays of color during the changing seasons.
Quietly pedal across the high plateau, later zoom down to the Bad Mitterndorf valley, ride along the Salzkammergut bike path to the valley station in Tauplitz, then catch a lift together with your bike up to idyllic Tauplitzalm village, arriving without a single bead of sweat on your brow.
At 1600 m above sea level, the Tauplitzalm is free of house dust mites, while pollen levels are exceptionally low. Tip: a timeout from allergens is the most natural form of therapy.
So, are you ready for a truly liberating experience in every regard?
