Austria Platzertal

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Unique alp with many peat bogs and old silver mine,
Location heavily endangered by planned pumped storage power plant.
Pictures are taken around in different places of the valley. So this time I skip the exact photo locations and set the exact spot direct to the Platzeralm building.

Photography Tips

Best overview and location pictures can be made at the old Miners house, as long as this industrial green battery project has not been approved.
Experience the nature walk along the river and when at the height of the Miner's house steep up pathless to the old silver mine place. For walking back to Platzeralm you can use the old Miners street and you will have a great overview along the way about the complete valley.

Travel Information

Drive to Landeck and continue to village Pfunds. Take the small and windy mountain road up to village Pfunds/Greit and car park at Pfundser Tscheyl├╝cke. From here you can walk 2.5 h to Platzeralm or you take your mountain bike and circle up to Platzer Alm about 600 hm, partly very steep. E-Bike recommanded.
