Go up by the cable car Panoramabahn Großarltal to the panorama plateau. Here you have the opportunity to indulge in some delicacies at the Laireiteralm. The hike uphill is quite leisurely to the Kreuzkogel and continues along a gravel path to the Spiegelsee (= mountain lake). There is also a high-level path for prams, which has been laid out extra flat so that you can also get directly to the Spiegelsee with a pram. A barefoot path and a wiggle stone path await you there. There is also a playground there. Here the children can really let off steam. But the Spiegelsee is always good for refreshment for adults, too. You hike back along the same path.

Author’s recommendation

After about half an hour a great summit climb on the Kreuzkogel awaits you.
