Reiteralm hike – mirror lake

Beautiful panoramic hike at the Reiteralm (1800m) to the mirror lake – Spiegelsee

The hiking bus takes you from the Hotel Matschner to Pichl and on to the Preunegg-Jet cable car. Arriving at the Reiteralm mountain station, the Reiteralm – Spiegelsee hike begins. With a steep ascent of approx. 1 hour you go on a beautiful, varied high-altitude trail to Rippeteck (2,126m). If you like, you can climb to the summit or continue along the path.

You hike on a beautiful varied trail to “Rippeteck” (2,126m). From Rippeteck it goes along a steep section to the Gassl lakes, the lower Gassl lake is called “Spiegelsee – mirror lake” because of the beautiful Dachstein mirroring inside the lake. This is one of the most beautiful and popular photo opportunities in Schladming-Dachstein. The Reiteralm is a lake paradise because there are also the Untersee, the green Waldsee and the Obersee in the immediate vicinity of the Spiegelsee.

The way continues on the newly created trail always along the trail until you get back to the starting point at the large Reiteralm lake and the Preunegg-Jet mountain station. Another highlight is the Stille Wasser theme trail to the Untersee. An easy hike for the whole family and the 1st via ferrata in the Schladminger Tauern.

The Franzi via ferrata, difficulty: C/D, can be ideally combined with the Reiteralm circular hiking trail to the lakes or with a summit ascent to the Rippeteck or Schober. Varied via ferrata through the vertical Gasselwand with a wonderful view of the Untersee.
