The Austrian Alps And The Salzkammergut Mountains
The Local Peaks Around Lake Altaussee In Styria
Mighty and ancient, the local peaks Loser and Trisselwand impose on the shores of Lake Altaussee. The Salzkammergut Mountains invite you to dream, hike and ski during your holidays in Austria.
The local peaks of Altaussee are part of the “Tote Gebirge” (Dead Mountains) mountain range, which is a part of the northern Lime Stone Alps. The name hints at the rocky and mostly vegetation less summit area of these lime stone mountains. From your Hotel Seevilla you enjoy an unmatched beautiful view at the Loser with its distinctly formed summit and the legendary Trisselwand summit.
Ausseerland And Salzkammergut Mountains: The Loser Summit Local Peak Of Altaussee
Start directly from your Hotel Seevilla and conquer the Loser summit on foot! If you prefer it less strenuous, drive up on the panorama road to up to 1.600 metres of altitude. Make a stop at the Loser Alm Chalet, before you continue to reach the summit. The effort is well worth it: from the 1.838 metre high summit of the Loser you will have an unparalleled view across the Lower Tauern and the Dachstein Massif and Mount Grossvenediger . The Salzkammergut lies at your feet! Equally worthwhile destinations are the Loser-Krone (Loser-Crown) and the “Loser-Fenster”. (Loser Window). All those especially brave will paraglide down to the valley via tandem paraglide flight or hang glider.
Trisselwand Summit: Impressive Hiking Tours In The Salzkammergut Mountains
If you look across the lake from Hotel Seevilla, you will see a steep imposing wall of stone – the Trisselwand Face. The Trisselwand legend, is telling the tale of the “Wildfrauen” (Wild Women), who hang up their freshly washed laundry at the Trisselwand for drying. You can see these laundry pieces: on those days when small pieces of clouds are captured in the Trisselwand’s rock face.
The Trisselwand summit is reached via a hiking path that starts directly at Hotel Seevilla, letting the hearts of any mountaineering fan skip a beat with the ever so beautiful views across Lake Altaussee and Lake Grundlsee. Once you have arrived at the top, you better be free of Vertigo: its 1.000 altitude metres down to the lake.
