On this stage of the long-distance trail around Lake Attersee you discover the beauty of the eastern side of the Lake. It will come as no surprise, that the region was declared a natural park: Naturpark Attersee-Traunsee.

From the tourist office in Steinbach am Attersee you set out to the nearby parish church. At the parish house (No  1) right behind the church, walk rightwards across the meadow and then left. That way, you arrive at the Seefeld community (472 m), where you take to the right to get to the sports centre and the Bierschmiede brewery. From there, follow the Großalm-Landesstraße for about 120 m into the valley until you turn left into the asphalted country road leading to Blümingen – you are now hiking up the Attersee-Ostwanderweg. From the upper meadows you continue on forest roads to the right on path No  1 passing below the tree nursery and then across a wooded  ridge to arrive at a fork.

Take the right path for a short detour to a wooden sign in the middle of the forest indicating the summit Bramhosen (960 m) (in some maps also ‘Bramosen’). The path on the left takes you in northwestern direction into a forest and to the Seeleitenstüberl inn. From there, you walk down the path, which, further down, cuts short a forest road to Alexenau.  To the left of the small settlement, there is the federal road and a bus stop. At the nearby lakeshore there is a pier of the boat service of Atterseeschifffahrt.

What follows is a flat stretch northwards on Dr.-Gleißner-Weg  branching off on the right hand side – at first on gravel, then asphalt you walk through meadows and wooded slopes below Wachtberg and above the federal road. Enjoy the wonderful views over the lake and the Höllengebirge mountain range. In Weyregg turn left into Weyregger Straße before you get to the parish church. You arrive at the tourist office (No. 69) just before the restaurant Kaisergasthof Zur Post.

After crossing the street you continue along the lakeshore to the Lido (Strandbad), through Jubiläumsallee (parking) to the bridge across the Weyregger Bach stream and then straight ahead on a walkway to the northern end of the village. Before you reach the Guesthaus Staudinger (next to the restaurant Landeroith) you get back to Weyregger Straße on the right which you follow for about 350 metres to the plant shop Hemetsberger. There, you turn left into Plötzingerweg. The power line pole marks the beginning of the Brandsteig path, No. 5, up to the Gahberg mountain. It winds up to the Gahberg ridge through forested slopes and meadows passing by Brandnerhof. Terrific view across the lake and all the way to Schafberg mountain! Take to the right to pass by a farmhouse, continue on the asphalted access road taking you to the nearby Gahbergstraße which you follow leftwards across the entire ridge.

After a stretch of forest you pass by the observatory on Hintergahberg and the shingled Gahbergkapelle. A few metres further, you turn left into the marked hiking path to Kreuzingalm. It runs across the ridge to Schickermahd, passing Kreuzingalm inn (short but rewarding detour). About 3 km after the alpine pasture, you corss the forested Alpenberg and after a short descent you arrive at a fork, where a representation of St. Mary commemorates a bomb attack in 1945. Continue straight ahead and after the ‘Hongar‘ sign you reach the alpine inn Schwarz.

Walk back along the forested ridge to the fork and the representation of St. Mary. After the sign ‘Looh, Halbmoos‘ walk down the path and on rugged forest roads (No. 6) through the forested northern side of Alpenberg to the idyllic Loitzenwies (hunter’s house). Arriving there, you turn left and cross the wooded ridge of the Schörflinger Trattberg mountain on forest road No 3 until you get to the neighbourhood Oberhehenfeld am Sickingbach. The country inn Schneiderwirt will be happy to help you regain strength.

Walk left on the asphalted Sickinger Straße into the valley passing by the fire department and the renovated Poinerhaus building. At the next junction, take to the right onto Bachbauernstraße, then Marktwaldstraße across a forested saddle (560 m). When you get to open meadows, turn left towards Waldvilla. There, you turn right into Karl-Hausjell-Allee. Cross the bridge over the bypass road and continue into Kammer-Schörfling. The tourist office is in Hauptstraße (No. 7). Continue to the right across the bridge over Ager river and turn left into Seewalchen am Attersee.
