YOUR HIKING HOTEL IN THE SALZKAMMERGUT

Fantastic hikes open up the luxurious splendour of our natural paradise. By car or walk direct from the hotel and you will get to countless managed Alpine inns, ideal starting points for hiking fans and summiteers and enjoyable finales after a successful tour!

The landscape in the Salzkammergut is as varied as the hiking trails which run through it. Hiking at Lake Wolfgangsee is a pleasure for young and old alike.

HIKING AND A BOAT TRIP ON LAKE WOLFGANGSEE

Get to the starting point of your hike by boat - in both Strobl and St. Wolfgang you can board the excursion boat which takes you to Strobl, St. Gilgen or Abersee. You can start out on your hike there at Lake Wolfgangsee or head into the mountains.

ON THE TRAIL OF MYTHS AND LEGENDS

Hiking holiday at the Wolfgangsee: It is obvious to follow the traces of Saint Wolfgang, the legendary founder of your holiday resort, at the Wolfgangsee. Follow the bishop from Regensburg up to the Falkenstein, wash your eyes in the healing water of the "Augenbründl", turn the Wunschstein and wipe off all heaviness in the Celtic slip stone. Don't forget to ring the bell! If the bell rings three times with a single pull on the bell rope, the legend says you have one wish free. Have you become curious?

HIKING ROUTES

The LAKE WAY

In the village Strobl on the road to the Fellmayerbad (community pool), then on a narrow path along the lake through the nature reserve Blinklingmoos past Birkenallee, Waßwiese = large open air bath area. Always a wonderful view to St. Wolfgang! Continue to the "Pitznerbauer" - on the left - beautiful old farm house with direct access to the lake! After approx. 500 m you turn right onto the road to Gschwendt - also a boat station. Here you can follow the road across the car park in the direction of Abersee. One crosses the Zinkenbach, comes through a small wood to the parish church Abersee. Up to here approx. 1 hour walking time!

You can also continue to walk to St. Gilgen - the best way is to follow the cycle path through the forest. Afterwards you take the footpath along the street up to St. Gilgen. One can turn into the small side streets to look past beautiful farm houses and camping sites directly at the lake. In Abersee - Gschwand there are the so-called "Stoffbauer" who sells sheep milk products directly from the farm. These have already been awarded several times!

In St. Gilgen after approx. 2 - 2.5 hours we recommend a refreshment at the Fischerwirt - directly at the lake or in other inns and coffee houses!
