The stage over the Steinerne Meer range is very impressive. Strange karst formations and sparse vegetation are characteristic of this desert-like plateau. Cross the border to Germany and the border to Berchtesgaden National Park at the Baumgartel. The vegetation becomes more verdant upon arriving in the hollow of the Funtensee lake, where many a record for cold temperatures has been broken already.

    Es gibt noch einen anderen Weg der geht links und hat eine blaue Makierung. Man kann dadurch das Steinernde Meer länger genießen.Teilweise gibt es auch rot weiße Stangen. Wenn das Wetter schlecht sein sollte, hat man aber die gleichen Probleme wie auf dem anderen Weg.

    There is another way of going left and has a blue Tag. One can thus Steinernde the sea longer genießen.Teilweise there are also red white rods. If the weather should be bad, but it has the same problems as in the other way.
