Tour description:

Alpine magic and lake paradise, this is how the tour over the Röthelmoosalmen can be summarized. Up to the wide, open alpine pasture, the forest road climbs a little steeper for a moment, but the exertion is immediately forgotten when you see the picture-book landscape that spreads out in front of you in the last few meters. The old Röthelmoos-Klause tells of the time of the wood-trift, the Langerbauer- and Dandl Alm invite you to homemade delicacies and the cow bells set the pace. After the stop, it goes through the narrow Wappbachtal along the crystal-clear mountain stream down to the Three Lakes area. A jump into the refreshing water is a must!
