This stage of the long-distance trail Attersee-Attergau takes you straight to the South – take  the sweet chestnut forest of Unterach as proof: a small miracle of nature, the only sweet chestnut forest north of the Alps where the spiny cupules shed mature nuts in the autumn. This phenomenon is owed to the mild climate of the Southern Attersee, which also ensures numerous warm days for hiking. There are more natural wonders to discover along the way, like Lake Egelsee which developed from a kettle hole after the end of the last ice age.

Starting out from the tourist office in Dorfstraße, Nußdorf, get back on the Wildholzweg and walk up through the village green and the upper village, turn left towards Pfarrer-Salettl (wonderful view over the village and across the lake to the Höllengebirge mountain range). Continue on the marked Attersee-Westwanderweg taking you through forest slopes and below Reiter Gupf to the restaurant Dachsteinblick. In clear weather, this place keeps what its name promises and you can really see all the way to Dachstein (Upper Austria’s highest mountain and glacier).

Descending leftward you reach the asphalted Limbergstraße on which you continue towards the right and uphill for about 200m. Below the Limberg farm, there is another descent leftwards along Dexelbach stream towards the forest’s edge above the settlement Zell. Continue rightwards, walking up and down above the lake, across the Parschallenbach stream to the scattered farmhouses of Ramsau, above the neighbourhood Stockwinkel. From there, you can make a small detour to the legendary ‘Berimandl Stoa’, where about 100 different nut trees were planted. Continuing on the Westwanderweg you will shortly arrive at another asphalted street and the branch-off to Reiserbauernmühle, a mill dating back to the 17th century (a rewarding detour of 45 minutes to get there and return).

You now walk down for 150m towards the lake and then turn right next to a small gravel pit onto the forest road Promberg (signindicating ‘Egelsee, Unterach’). At the edge of the forest, take to the left, then right onto a path leading into the bed of the Urfangbach stream, across the stream and uphill to the farmhouse Modlinger. Continue downwards on the asphalted access road, turn right towards the farmhouse Hausmann and above that turn into the hiking path to Egelsee branching off to the left.

From the southern banks of the strictly protected bog waters you continue on a gravel road over a meadow to the Holzberg farmhouse. On the way, you take twice to the right, then take the hiking path leftwards to the panoramic hotel and restaurant Druckerhof. Continue on a field path into the forested eastern slope of Hochplettspitze mountain, then downwards to Kohlbauern and into the Menerweg neighbourhood. After a short loop towards the right and across a ditch, you finally arrive and turn right into Atterseestraße which you follow for about 170m (direction Unterach). After the bridge across Schneiderbach stream, the sign ‘Waldlehrpfad‘ (nature trail) points to the right into the sweet chestnut forest of Unterach.

From the first stretch of the nature trail, you take to the left and walk down to the bypass road. Cross it and walk through Leitnergasse into the village centre of Unterach am Attersee.

Vis-à-vis users

PLEASE OBSERVE:

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.

 

The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.

 

The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.

 

We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.

 

Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.

 

The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.

 

2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.

 

The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.

 

The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.

 

3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.

 

We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.

 

4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:

 

Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.

 

a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.
