Really great, well marked trail. Demanding, but worthwhile. On the way you will be rewarded with a great view and cold beer. With waterfalls, a gorge and wonderful views, it is all in all a very varied tour. You should allow around 4 hours for the route.Show more

This route leads over the Himmelspforte to the popular Schafberg and the less visited summit Spinnerin.

A day tour around Lake Hallstatt. In a south-easterly direction, you make your way around the lake. On the east side of the lake you follow the east bank hiking trail, whereas the west side takes you to lofty heights on the brine pipeline route. The path is one of the most beautiful in Austria. The entire brine pipeline route is almost 40 km long, so you only hike here on a section.Show more

A hike to the Schafberg on Lake Wolfgang is an absolute must when visiting the Salzkammergut. This route is very steep and strenuous, but the wonderful views of numerous lakes, such as the Attersee, Mondsee or Wolfgangsee, reward you for the effort. If you don't want to walk, you can also reach the Schafbergspitze in the summer with the Schafbergbahn, the steepest cogwheel railway in Austria.Show more
