On the far shore of the turquoise mountain lake lies the "Apollontempel" (Temple of Apollo), a place of power made using raw rock from the area. This work of art was created without using any binding agent by the artists Robert Tribus and Hinz Triendl and it took 20 years to build.

The path leads along the stream for most of the way and comes to a rest area with a table and benches.

The Larchsteig is a short circular hike on the edge of the village of Obsteig with a focus on "the Larch meadow experience at the historic Herdstein". If you take your time, you can discover lots of interesting information about the larch itself, as well the history of the larch forests, how they are managed and their inhabitants. The highlights include glacial erratics, which are large boulders from the Ice Age, and a large stone with a circle on it, known as the "Kreisstein", which still remains a mystery. The duration of the route depends entirely on who is doing it: runners only need 15 minutes, hikers can complete it in 45 minutes, interested hikers may need two hours and anyone who really wants to savour it should allow half a day.

An alpine-urban ridge hike ​The Olympiabahn funicular takes you quickly and easily up to the sunny Hoadl plateau and the start of this hike. The trail starts to the right of the Hoadl Haus mountain restaurant (at the top of the double chair lift) and first leads downhill along the ski run before turning left at the signpost to follow the trail to Pleisenjöchl at 2,190 m.
