Tour II – Family tour with the Schafberg cogwheel train at lakes Wolfgangsee, Mondsee und Fuschlsee

The newly established long distance trail links these hotspots in a never seen before, comprehensive way. On 19 stages or 337 km, plus several regional circuits, a new walking experience takes form. Discover lush Alpine meadows, fairy-tale forests and invigorating waters in a cultural landscape of outstanding authenticity.
