On Tabor Peak you will find a very interesting high ropes course (http://www.hochhinauf.at)- for those who are not afraid of heights!

Destination

Any point around the lake

Turn-by-turn directions

You can begin this hike from basically any point around Lake Faak.  A decent starting point is the Faak Tourist Information Center, where you can take either the "Fliederweg" or "Kirchenweg" to begin the hike.  Shortly before the main road (Bundesstrasse) leads into a patch of woods, there is a forest path that leads in the direction of Drobollach (always follow the "Seerundweg" signs).   Before Drobollach you come out of the woods again and follow the main road for a short time.  Still before getting to Drobollach, there is a small field path that leads to the lakeview promenade, which you follow further in the direction of “Egg.”  After a short break at “Egger Martel” to enjoy the gorgeous view the path leads you to Egg.  In Egg you can either take a direct path along the main road or you can walk past the Egger Church to meet up with a forest trail that runs parallel to the main road.  With this second route you will walk past “Hotel Sonnblick,” out of the woods and take a right back onto the main road.  After passing the camp-site you walk along the lake back to Faak.
