Description: This snowshoe hike leads us to one of the most magnificent mountain landscapes of Upper Austria. It is awarded as a landscape and nature reserve.

From the mountain station of the Wurzeralmbahn we walk towards Brunnsteinkar and in a big round over the deep-winter peat meadows and mountain pastures. We become aware that terrain formations, such as sinkholes, the stream of the Teichl or moores, shape the landscape in secret. Snow-covered tree giants and animal tracks in the snow draw our attention to the adaptability of plants and animals, which they need to survive the harsh and long mountain winter. We enjoy our brought snack on a view point, from where we can enjoy the winter scenery.
