The tour

The further we drive into the Kleinsölktal, the more imposingly the steep forested hillsides ascend towards the peaks above.  From the Breitlahn Hütte, a broad path takes us on an almost flat walk alongside the Kleinsölk stream to the Schwarzensee. Three sides of this lake are surrounded by dark forest, standing along the shore are a number of enormous, ancient alpine maples. And in good weather, whenever we come to a clearing, we can enjoy enchanting reflections off the lake. 

In spring and early summer, a veil of waterfalls cloaks the cliffs of the cirque, rhododendron are in bloom and, by the end of June, the cows have already been driven up here and the cowherds are working hard.  Gigantic blocks of rock serve as protection for these rustic alpine huts, each roofed with wooden shingles and blending perfectly into the surrounding countryside.  

Turn-by-turn directions

The Breitlahn hut in the Kleinsölktal is the starting point of the hike. Here you can find a wide path almost flat along the Kleinsölk stream till the Schwarzensee.
