From the car park at the “Achenseeschiffahrt” (shipping company) the trail starts as a wide lakeside path first and then turns into a steep path in direction “Gaisalm”. After crossing some gravel plains you will reach the “Gaisalm” mountain hut. From there, a well-maintained steep path leads through the rocky area to the neighbouring village of Achenkirch. The northern lakeshore is not accessible but via a little detour you can walk to the jetty “Scholastika”. Sure-footedness and a good head for heights are essential for this hike!
