If you are interested in reaching this particularly beautiful points, you have to go up with the cable railway Brunnalmbahn at first. At the mountain station of the chairlift „Mooserberg I“ you will take notice of the play ground and adventure arena „Wassermythos Ochsenlacke“, which serves as a provider for numerous leisure activities for young and elderly people. From there you have to follow the well signposted hiking trail in the direction of the mountain pass Ochsenlenke. After approximately 4 km you will reach the aforesaid place by letting your gaze wander over the splendid panorama, which also shows the delightful Villgratental. The next highlight is located only a few meters away – the mountain lake Degenhornsee. Situated at more than 2000 meters above the sea level and embedded in a debris trough, the surrounding peaks are reflected in its crystal clear, deep blue water. By passing the edge of the small mountain Degenhorn you will come to the end of your excursion after a 30 minutes‘ walk. At almost 3000 meters alititude you can benefit from an unique panorama. Depending on your preference, the way back may be identical with the way there or you can take the direct route over the ridge to the mountain pass Ochsenlenke. However this alternative is a challenging climbing tour, which should only be done by alpine experienced mountaineers.
