WalkersThe numerous marked trails make the area a walker’s paradise. Walks are available for all grades of walkers.
We hope that we can provide you with a taster;
The Echerntal valley with the Malerweg, Glacier Garden and the stunning Waldbach waterfalls – 1.5 to 2 hours.
The picturesque Gosausee, with the Gosau Glacier as a permenant back-drop 1 hour. (Return walk to the Hintersee 3-4 hours)
And of course, the most scenic; Hallstattersee Lake, 25km circular route, first on the Ostoferweg, peaceful and relaxing with views across to Hallstatt, crossing at the far side of the lake to the Solenleitungsweg, the famous ‘salt trail’, through Hallstatt and returning to Obertraun – 5 to 6 hours (there are various points at which you can shorten the walk, using the train or ferry services).
The beautiful Koppental, following the Traun to Bad Aussee (train journey or transfer required) – 3 hours.
Most of these are within the Traun valley and so quite flat – easy to medium grade.
It is also possible to cycle along some of these trails.
Walks on the high Krippenstein Plateau are also possible from mid June to the end of October and would include;
Heilbronner Kreuz circular route – 3 hours.
Gjaidalm, Wiesberg and Simony huts, a circular route in the direction of the Dachstein Glacier – 6 hours.
From the valley to the middle cable-car station at Sonnenalm (3 hours) and onward to the summit – 6 hours
The Sarstein, on the opposite side of the valley, the Sarstein hut provides views across to the Glacier - 6 hours.
Most of these walks are graded medium to hard.
We provide a local walking map and the walks are well marked by way-markers, so making self-guided walking possible.
We will be very happy to assist you in organising a personal itinerary.
