This hike leads you from the summit of the Gerlitzen alps down to Neugarten Almsee and its beautiful world of water.  From there it goes past the Kammer hut to the gondola middle station.  Here you can decide if you would like to immediately take the gondola back to the valley, or if you want to take the chairlift back to the summit to once again enjoy the majestic view.

Author’s recommendation

The Costal hike is also interesting- with this route you can take a route past three different restaurant-huts with different Carinthian specialties offered at each.  Relevant information can be found at the Summit house, the Almsee hut, the Pöllinger hut or the cashier's desk at the gondola valley station.
