Description

Above the Wochenbrunner Alm is the Ellmau Stone Circle, a natural energy field in the form of a giant mandala. This easy tour starts at the Wochenbrunner Alm. With your back to the mountain hut, turn left and follow path no. 14 up a slight incline. After around 30 minutes, you will come to the clearing with the Ellmau Stone Circle.
Having boosted your energy reserves, you should turn around and follow the same route back. Alternatively, you can follow the forest trail that runs above the route you took to reach the Stone Circle. The root-covered trail marked with the number “13” features a series of ascents and descents (slippery when wet – please take care). Shortly before reaching the Hausbach stream, the trail makes a sharp right turn and runs parallel to the stream as it leads you back to the starting point. Here, you can round off the hike with a relaxed refreshment stop.

Tip: on the way to the Stone Circle, look for a small stone and take this with you as a token of energy. This ensures that you will always have the spirit of the Wilder Kaiser with you at home.
