Panoramic Path Going - Scheffau

Route description

Take the cable car up to the Astberg in Going and experience the scenic beauty of the Astbergsee, an idyllic Alpine lake, which is rightly known as the Kaiser's mirror! The mountain trail takes you to the Brandstadl in Scheffau. Walk uphill amidst untouched natural scenery, then downhill through meadows and woods, until you come to the Jochstubnsee lake. After a short stop for refreshment, you continue to the "KaiserWelt" mountain theme park on the Brandstadl in Scheffau. This is where everyday life ends and a world of fantasy begins as you pass through the castle gates into the KaiserWald forest. Finally, enjoy a comfortable ride back down to the valley on the Brandstadl cable car and then hop on the free "KaiserJet" bus service back to your starting point in Going.
