Useful information about the panoramic hiking tour in Pinzgau

After your arrival in Maishofen, also known as the ‘castle village’, you start your seven-day hiking tour. Over the following days you will hike through dreamlike mountain scenery with unforgettable views – on average ten kilometres per day. The route leads over alpine trails and well-developed secondary forest roads. Day four and five require a bit more fitness – that’s when the Pinzgau Kasnockn taste better after a hike.

Angenehme Wanderrouten im schönen Pinzgau
Die Wanderwoche im Pinzgau mit der Unterkunft im Schloss Kammer war wunderschön. Gut geplante und einfach zu findende Wanderrouten. Tolles reichhaltiges Essen im Schloss Kammer. Am Besten hat uns die Rundwanderung Lindlingalm & Saalalm und Rundwanderung Zeller See gefallen. Es war grundsätzlich immer toll, Blick auf die verschneiten Berge zu haben.
