Hiking between mighty peaks and gentle pastures

Even in midsummer, the ice of the glaciers still glitters from the peaks of the three-thousanders. The magnificent mountain panorama can be enjoyed on a hike to one of the easily accessible alpine pastures, where you should treat yourself to a hearty alpine snack with a “Selberbrennt’n” stamperl. Maishofen is located in a wide valley basin. Walkers who feel more comfortable on the flat will find worthwhile destinations here as well as those who are drawn higher into the mountains.

Guided hikes are organized weekly from June to September.

Furthermore, in the months of July and August, music hikes take place to the Kammereggalm, where, after a leisurely hike, a folk music group plays for you for a hearty Almjause.


Weißsee Glacier World (mid June – early October)

The Weißsee Gletscherwelt in Uttendorf in Salzburger Land presents itself as an impressive destination for walkers, hikers and mountain professionals in summer. Enjoy the imposing natural scenery of the over 3,000 m high mountains in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park.

During your vacation the Weißsee Gletscherbahn and the Almenwelt Lofer is included 1x free of charge.

Almenwelt Lofer (mid May – early November)

Austria’s most beautiful hiking alpine pasture in Lofer: explore 4 mountain peaks and 7 circular hiking trails amidst impressive 2,000 m high peaks:

  • Waterfall path
  • Secret Santa
  • Alpine adventure playground


Hiking boots and rainwear (always!) are urgently required. Storms can occur in the mountains. Hat, sunscreen and sunglasses – very important. Always take a backpack (preferably everyone, then the individual does not have to carry so much – for families) and take something to eat with you. Drinks should be taken in sufficient quantity. Drinks that are not too sweet will make you even more thirsty.

Please only have breakfast as usual, rather a little less… and take something with you.

The body has to cope with the change and the height, which is unfamiliar to many, and then it has to process the lavish (well-intentioned by landlords) breakfast.
