Schleifsteinbruch Gosau

A wonderful hike

A circular walk-way has been constructed, without a single nail, around the Löckernmoos small mountain lake.

Follow the forest track which you join between Gamsjäger's guest house and the Gosauschmied inn. After approx. 30 min we bear off into the woodland. From here we follow a well-indicated Theme Trail which brings us to the Historic Gritstone Quarries (allow about an hour and a half). From the quarries it is about half an hour further to the "Löckernmoos" mountain moorland from where you can walk on a wooden platform to the romantic Löckernsee mountain lake. Enjoy the wonderful panorama with the Gosaukamm mountain range in the background. Continue via the Grubalm to the "Wildfrauenloch". This is said to be a "lucky spot", and you can lean back and take a well earned rest on an unusual "seat" made from old fir trees.
