Description

The blue jewel below the Kleiner Rettenstein
From Schering car park, follow the signs to the 400-year-old Bruggeralm mountain hut. The route is circular and first leads along the alpine road towards Gaux-Niederalm, Gaux-Hochalm and Gauxjoch. The hike then continues along a hiking trail below the Kleiner Retten­stein mountain and leads to the idyllic Blaue Lacke lake. The route back goes via Talsenhöhe to the 3-S-Bahn cable car and, from there, back to the Bruggeralm mountain hut where you can enjoy a break before hiking the last stretch back to the starting point.
