    Alpine experience is not required here.
    Hiking in the mountains can not be compared with this mountain trail!
    BUT, the track is very nice with good view over the lake.
    Attention, also very strong Geschangen😣

  • Fantastic view for a giddiness-free!
    Is often described as a light section, but is by the constant ups and downs quite exhausting. You always have to be absolutely sure-footed, as it is right next to the trail mostly steeply into the lake.

  • Beautifully situated hiking trail above the Achensee with stunning views of the lake. Again and again one comes to beautiful pebble beaches to cool over. My fur nose Luna had a lot of fun! If you are fit enough, you can continue from the Gaisalm via the Marienstig to Achenkirch. From there, a ship goes back to Pertisau. Attention, only in high season. Have fun with Nachwandern.

  • from the Gaisalm to Scholastika the way is called "Mariensteig". It takes about 1 1/2 hours and is really only recommended for courageous and vertigo-free hikers. But for him he is an experience!

  • Often 60 cm wide ways ... but do not be deterred. It is worth seeing.
    In snow or heavy rain, however, danger to life

  • From here you have a wonderful view of the Gasthaus Gaisalm. Just the last part of the Gaisalmsteig from the northern tip of the Achensee here still wants to be mastered ...

  • The Mariensteig is really very slippery in the rain and snow. The "waterfalls" have to be walked through and can keep feet wet.

  • Wonderful path with views along the Achensee to the hosted Gaisalm. You should definitely plan the tour when you are on holiday. :)

  • The path is an absolute highlight and yes, on a beautiful holiday weekend, it can be very crowded on the way. It is feasible for almost everyone. But sturdy shoes should be worn.

  • Rose is sometimes very slippery in rainy weather, and the waterfalls from the Karwendel Mountains don't just keep your feet wet
