Length: 8.7 mi • Est. 5 h 27 m
The Zittauer Hütte is located at 2,328 m above the Wildgerlostal in the Pinzgau region of Salzburg. Located at the foot of the Reichenspitz group, the hut is an ideal starting point for hiking and mountain tours in the westernmost area of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Popular destinations are the Wildkarspitze (3,073 m, 3.5 h), the Rosskopf (2,845 m, 1.5 h) and the Wildgerlosspitze (3,276 m, 5 h). Sometimes the path leads steeply up the rocks over stone steps with safety ropes. The exertion is worth it, because after overcoming this last key point it is only about 100 hm to the Zittauer Hütte and the cool water of the Lower WildgerlosseeShow more

Austria's highest view: an experience for young and old. The Großglöckner high alpine road enjoys unbroken enthusiasm and fascination. Since the street opened in 1935, it has become wider, safer, and more comfortable. What was once reserved for experienced mountaineers can now be explored by car or bike. A diverse mountain world, fascinating views, museums, huts and mountain inns make the route a varied experience.Show more

This route leads to the four highest peaks of the hiking paradise Zauchensee. It goes to the Gamskogel, the Arche, the Tagweideck and the Schwarzkopf. From there you have wonderful views of the surrounding area of Niedere Tauern, Hohe Tauern, the Tennengebirge and Radstädter Tauern. From mid-June to mid-September you can take the 6-seater Gamskogel I chairlift to the Gamskogelhütte at an altitude of almost 1,900m. This is open during the same period and invites you to stop. It is also the starting point for the 4.5-hour long 4-peak tour. The route can be hiked in either direction. To "warm up" it is recommended to go towards the ark first.Show more

Gaisberg features many steep switchbacks snaking their way up the mountain. There is plenty of shade, and even some benches on the way up. From the bottom of the trailhead, expect about 2 hours to the peak. On a clear day, the views are gorgeous! There are several restaurants at the top and the 151 bus stops quite often at the top. Tickets are roughly 3.50 for the ride back down. Show more

The route begins at the parking lot on the Berchtesgadener Ache. Surrounded by illuminated beech forest, you climb up quickly. Slightly lower down, the creek ditch and the hole ditch with pools and waterfalls follow the route. From about halfway along the route, the trees become fewer, the shade diminishes and the views better. Soon you pass the Toni-Lenz-Hütte, where you can take a refreshing break. Then it goes on to the summit.Show more
