Austria’s tallest trees in Lammertal Virgin Forest

Mighty treetop in Lammertal Virgin Forest The “Lammertal Watchman”, a 48 m tree that is about 300 years old.

Hike out to our ca. 10-hectare forest nature reserve, in which firs, spruce, beech and larches grow to extraordinary dimensions in a practically virgin setting.

The outstanding soil conditions and the favorable hillside location have allowed the trees to grow in an optimal climate to become the biggest trees in Austria.

The “Lammertal Watchman” is astonishing, a 48-meters-tall pine tree estimated to be about 300 years old.

Enjoy a refreshment break in the Lammertal Virgin Forest
The Spiessalm in St. Martin, located below the Lammertal Virgin Forest.

After a pleasant hike, the Spiessalm, which is located just below the Lammertal Virgin Forest, is an excellent place to stop for refreshments, serving up top-quality homemade products and cheese specialties from their very own dairy.

Here, you can enjoy a well-earned snack and take in the sight of these ancient giants one more time.

How to reach the Lammertal Virgin Forest:
  • Departing from the Seepark in St. Martin, you can follow the Baumwanderweg, a pathway which leads in the direction of Lammertal and to the Lammertal Virgin Forest (about a 2-hour walk).
  • If you prefer, you can also drive up to the Spiessalm car park from Lammertal in Lungötz, and then walk up to the tallest trees in Austria (about a 1-hour walk).
