Wandern zwischen mächtigen Gipfeln und sanften Almen
Up on the summits of our 3,000-meter (9842 feet) peaks, the ice still glistens in the sun even at the height of summer. Soak in the magnificent Alpine vistas as you enjoy a leisurely hike up to one of our mountain inns. Once there, you should definitely stop in for a hearty traditional snack and make sure you sample some of their home-distilled Schnaps! Maishofen itself lies in a broad valley basin. Walkers who'd prefer to remain on the valley floor will discover destinations along their route that are equally interesting and worthwhile.
In addition, July and August are also a time for our popular "music hikes" up to the Stablberg and Kammereggalm: after a gentle hike, enjoy traditional foods accompanied by the tones of a local folk-music group.
During the months of June and September, the community organizes guided hikes into the surrounding countryside every week.
