Author’s recommendation

It is very recommendable to go on a guided tour with an ornithologist in spring.

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the Radweghöhe Domenig Steinhaus, where you turn off into the Panoramaweg and walk along the shore towards Steindorf. Here you walk along the Seestrasse for a few meters in northern direction and then you need to cross a brook on a small bridge. Follow the path along the shore of the lake. There is a playground for children and a public toilet. Through a small connecting path you will reach the path along the beach which you follow in northern direction until you get to the Gasthof Laggner. This is where a dirt road begins. After a few minutes walk the asphalt road turns into a graveled path (path No. 1). Along the embankment there are two observation towers, where you can observe the numerous inhabitants of the Bleistätter bog. At the end of the embankment turn in front of the second bridge towards the direction of Prefelnig (path no. 2) and cross the Landesstraße after a few minutes. Follow the road to Prefelnig or Tiffen / Feldkirchen. The bridge over the Tiebelbach has to be crossed and then turn right again towards Steindorf (route no. 2A). Once again, the Landesstraße needs to be  crossed before you reach the resting place at the beginning of the gravel road. The Domenig Steinhaus can be reached via the cycle path.
