Zauberwald –  Hintersee

The Magical Forest

Distance: up to 10 km
Altitude covered: 150 m
Duration: 2 – 3 Hours
Starting point: Ramsau Village

Follow the river upstream, passing by the Gletscherquellen (Glacial springs) and onto the Marxenklamm. This amazing gorge which is sprinkled with icicles, has been formed over thousands of years of water cutting into the underlying rock. At this point you enter the Zauberwald or the well earned name of the magical forest. 

15 million cubic metres of rock fell to the valley from the surrounding mountains  approximately 3500 years ago. It blocked off the whole valley. The water from Hintersee, while searching for a downhill path, formed this fairytale scenery now known as the magical forest (Zauberwald).

Wanderung über den vereisten Hintersee

Allow yourself to be captivated by this magical scenery and escape into the magic forest with its snow covered trees. Take some time to relax at the Hintersee which is usually frozen over in Winter. Depending on the amount of snow lying on the ground, you could consider returning to the village via Kunterweg Kirche.This lenghtens the tours by approximately one hour.

Restaurants along the way: Gasthof Alpenhof, Gasthof Wörndlhof, Wirtshaus im Zauberwald, Gasthaus Seeklause, Cafe Gelfahrt, Gasthof Auzinger.
