Löckernmoos Gosau - 10km
One way to reacht the quarries is by „Gosau Land Train“. There are departures every week, during the summer months, from the Tourist Information in Gosau. We can admire views, along the way, of a beautiful natural landscape before reaching our destination at 1340 m above sea level: the gritstone huts. Our walk from here takes us via the wild, romantic „Löckernmoos“. This is an area of moss-covered high mountain moorland, in the midst of which there is a little lake. A visit to this area is a highlight for visitors of all ages.
