Tauernteich (Tauern Pond)
From the street, you follow a well-marked path to the east, heading uphill. On this trail you climb alongside a brook. Always remaining near the water you will be hiking up a steep path. At some points there will be wooden steps, and there are steel steps towards the top to assist with the steep climb. Towards the end the climb flattens out and you cross several bridges over a small stream. You then pass the ruins of an old mill on the last part of the hike before reaching amall pond called Tauernteich.
Follow the same route to get back to the starting point.
