On the Edge on an Abyss

If you are looking for peace and silence away from the busy tourist destinations. Seejöchl makes the perfect spot. Up here the world is still a paradise! After a couple of fairly steep ascents towards the viewing platform towering above lake Piburger See, hikers are rewarded with fabulous views of the lake and the majestic mountains in the background. Observe the lively activities some 150hm further down from a bird's eye perspective. Cozy seating facilities on the platform are ideal for a short break. Hikers, mountain bikers and E-bikers share the same trail. However, the last few meters towards the platform can only be covvered on foot.

Depending from which direction you are approaching Seejöchl, the ascent can be quite strenuous. The easiest way to reach the vista point is from the hamlet of Piburg or the hamlet of Haderlehn. Other trails start directly from the southwestern shore of the lake or from Oetz via Kohlstatt.

Starting point: Piburg car park

Walking time (both ways): Piburg loop walk-Seejöchl-Lake Piburger See-Piburg approx. 2 h
