The tour
The first part of the walk takes you through Talbachklamm gorge, which has a special charm in winter. The small rivulets entering the gorge from the side form bizarre ice sculptures. From Untertal-Dorf you then walk up to the sunny plateau of Rohrmoos. Along the route there are several opportunities to stop for a refreshment.
