Recommended age 6 Years
Follow the walkway along the Ramsauer Ache upriver past the glacier springs to the Marxenklamm, where the water has cut a deep gorge into the rock over many millennia, to the entrance of the magic forest, which probably bears this name right. About 3,500 years ago, the unimaginable mass of about 15 million cubic meters of rock tumbled down from the Hochkalter mountain, while obstructing the valley, creating lake Hintersee.
The water seeks it's way through the snow-covered magic forest starting at this often with an ice crust covered lake (enter at your own risk). The gurgling mountain stream covers the rocks with ice and creates a magical fairytale landscape with bizarre ice formations. Be enchanted and enjoy this scenic beauty.
You can also make your way back to Ramsau over the Wartstein (hill) and the graceful pilgrimage Kunterweg church, this extends the hike by about an hour. You will probably remember this hikes magic for a long time.
