PillerseeTal - Berge - Blumen

Educational flower trail - Buchensteinwand

Circular trail on one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in the PillerseeTal

Starting from the mountain station, the Bergbahn Pillersee, the romantic circular trail passes the Jakobskreuz, along the ridge to the reservoir and back again. Along the ridge you'll be spoilt for choice by the countless number of dreamlike photo points, which provide the perfect pictures for your holiday journal. The tour can also be completed with small children, as a children's playground is located halfway along the picturesque reservoir. You should at least take the chance to pull out your phone or camera at this spot, as the Loferer Steinberge are perfectly reflected on the lake's surface. The starting point is reached again by following a forest trail.
