This easy tour is also walkable when the weather is bad.

Starting at the Gosauschmied, this circular walk is also possible in bad weather in proper walking boots. Follow the road up to the lower Gosau lake for about 1km and then bear left along a gravel track. The route continues over several small bridges.

The streams you cross are known as the "Brunnbaeche". The streams are fed mostly by water from the Dachstein plateau and even the Dachstein glacier itself, which is why these streams do not dry out even in long, hot, dry spells. The water from each little "spring" has its own individual taste. Try it out!

As you continue through the woods you get a glimpse of the Stausee lake every now and then. After a relatively steep stretch you should not re-join the road, but continue along the "Panoramawegerl"("Panoramic Route") running parallel with the edge of the woods. This brings you to the "Gasthof Gamsjaeger" (100m from the starting point).
