Elevation Profile


The tour begins to the left of the car park Seespitz. Follow the road for a few metres, at the restaurant Peter’s Grill walk across the road and from the car park, climb the narrow trail to the panorama trail. Turn left, follow the trail straight on, then turn right at the next junction and follow the asphalt road to the last houses of the Lärchenwiese. A forest road branches off from the road and leads to the Weißenbachtal. After a short hike, walk across the stream bed of the Weißenbach which is generally dry. Continue along the forest road which climbs gradually to the mountain huts Weißenbachhütte (not serviced) and Weißenbachalm. From here, walk to the Weißenbachsattel and through the forest to the  Bärenbadalm (time 3 hours 30 minutes). The route leads back to Lake Achensee in an easterly direction. Continue along the forest road below the steep slope and walk back to the valley. Walk to the next signpost and take the panorama trail back to Maurach.
