4th place: The larch stone
The larch stone is a very special place. A larch lay here many years ago protectively over a large stone, which marks an entrance into the earth. Now it is probably time for the tree and the stone to release the information of the earth. It is a place of cleansing with female energy. When you enter into the energies of this place, you can see the connection to the earth very well. A heart place with the ninefold energy of man.

Author’s recommendation

Stroll along the wonderful circular route from the Oberhofalm over the alpine Almsee lake to the Unterhofalm or vice versa. The alpine Almsee lake, a small, idyllic mountain lake at the foot of the Bischofsmütze.
