Hiking in the Salzburger Land

The Salzburger Land is packed with nature, mountains and adventures. A real playground for mountaineers and anyone who would like to be one. Saying that, things can get very steep and alpine, although they don't have to. The Salzburger Land is so diverse with its beautiful hills, green forests and great mountains that you are sure to find the right thing to suit all tastes.

A hiking paradise - from short and easy to long and difficult

There are plenty of hiking trails. Some of them start very close to the Landgasthof Kirchbichl all around Hallwang, others in turn take you much deeper into the Salzburger Land and Salzkammergut regions. You have a great selection of hikes with different lengths, altitude and difficulty. However, it is important that you see as much as possible of our beautiful Salzburger Land and also take the time for one or two breaks.

4 mountains - 3 lakes: a tour over several days in the Salzkammergut region

Fancy doing something unforgettable? With this magical tour you climb 4 mountain peaks in 4 days and get to see almost everything that the mountains have to offer. The 1st stage leads from Fuschl am See over the peak of the Zwölferhorn to St. Gilgen by Wolfgangsee lake. On the 2nd day starting from St. Gilgen you climb the peak of the Schafberg with great views including an amazing panorama. On the 3rd day you hike from the Fürberg am Wolfangsee shipping pier to Mondsee's town centre. On day 4 you climb up to the Schober's peak, which is situated right between Mondsee and Fuschlsee lakes. After the hike down you reach the tour's starting point again in Fuschl am See.

Do you fancy a bit more of an alpine feeling?

The Salzkammergut region is also famous for a whole range of breathtaking via ferratas. In many places the striking limestone rock faces appear to rise directly out of the lakes' waters and offer unimaginable possibilities for via ferrata fans. Many of these via ferratas are more for experts than for beginners - it's important to be well informed beforehand. Here are a few highlights:

  • The Drachenwand via ferrata - a wonderful climb for experienced climbers
  • Mahdlgupf via ferrata by Attersee lake - a long via ferrata for very fit experts
  • Gosau via ferrata - right over the lake with great views over the Dachstein
  • Hallstatt Echernwand via ferrata - a highlight for experienced climbers, right over the lake

Right to the top of the glacier

As we were just talking about the Dachstein, you can climb it too. Although the region around the Gosausee and Gosaukamm is not just round the corner to Landgasthof Kirchbichl, a trip to the world of the Dachstein & co. always pays off. Crossing the Gosaukamm is an alpine highlight in itself. Anyone who sets off on a tour over the Hallstätter or Gosau glacier will not stop raving about it. This can even be topped though when a climb to the Dachstein peak is on the agenda. A prerequisite for this is a professional guided tour and knowledge of the Alps.

You see there are plenty of hikes and mountain adventures in the Salzburger Land region. We leave it entirely up to you how sporty and alpine the whole thing should be.
