Via the Bergeralm snack station (children's playground), you continue on an easily accessible hiking trail to the Kalser Tauernhaus at 1,755 metres. In another 20 min. and after an ascent you reach another viewing pulpit at the Stotzbachfall (offers beautiful photo motifs of the break-offs of Laperwitz- and Fruschnitzkees)

Along the way, the national park administration has set up an educational trail, the Dorfertal Geschichte(n)weg (story trail)), a kind of "audio trail". In so-called “audio trees", voices from mountain farmers, dairymaids, mountain guides, hut owners and other well-informed citizens of Kals tell about life in the alpine valley. Stories taken from life, funny, moving, but also shocking events from many decades. There are also information boards on the nature and culture of Dorfertal. A solid viewing pulpit entices bold views into the roaring depths of the Dabaklamm Gorge — a spectacular highlight especially for children! The path to the Tauernhaus can also be mastered with a robust buggy.
