Panorama Walking Tours in the Zell am See District with Charm

7 Days / 6 Nights
Moderate Walking
View of Lake Zell from the Schmittenhöhe with the Hohe Tauern in the background

For those looking to indulge, the hiking region of Pinzgau is ideal. Do you want balance between a hiking experience and enjoyable relaxation? No problem! The mountain pastures, the craggy peaks and countless three-thousand-metre summits contrast with the tranquil, crystal-clear lake Zell and the rustic mountain sauna with its own swimming pond in the Schloss Kammer. A symphony to the senses and true to our special tour section: hiking with charm!

Breathtaking views are guaranteed – it’s in the tour name, panorama tour! Whether on the mountain trail in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, on the Schmittenhöhe or in the Schwalbenwand, the snow-capped peaks, colourful alpine meadows and the lake Zell the landscape will amaze. Pinzgauer delicacies also await you in the alpine huts. Whether you sample Kasnockn, Edelbrände or a hearty jause you will definitely enjoy it! 

  • Take the gondola to the Schmittenhöhe: You exit the gondola at an altitude of 1,965 metres to experience an impressive panoramic view of many three-thousand-metre peaks.
  • Reach the summits: Both the Schwalbenwand and the Maishofner Hausberg are the jewel on the crown of the panoramic hike in Pinzgau. 1,280 metres above sea level and achieved in about five hours and open up the view of the Hohe Tauern and the Steinerne Meer.

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 10 kilometres per day. The route leads over alpine trails and well-developed secondary forest roads. Day 4 and 5 require a bit more fitness – that’s when the Pinzgau Kasnockn taste better after a hike.

Charming nights: You will sleep in the Schloss Kammer. The renovated four-star hotel takes you back in time and leaves nothing to be desired.

On our ‘Hiking Tours with Charm’ you can enjoy the full service of our individual active holidays while staying in very special accommodation with that extra something in the best location. That means you can look forward to luxury furnishings and decor in the local style, as well as cuisine at the highest level. Many of our hotels with charm also offer large pools and a wellness area where you can relax after a lovely day of hiking.

Arrival to Maishofen

Via Maishofen´s ridgeway you walk to mountain guesthouse Mitterberghof, where the comfortable sun terrace is inviting for a break. Enjoy the wonderful panorama view onto the surrounding mountains. Your way leads you downhill to Thumersbach past the Hubertus chapel and on along lake Zell, where a visit to the lido attracts. Via Mayerhofen and the Steinberg mountail you return to the palace Kammer.

By bus from the centre of Maishofen to ‘Sportregion Saalbach’. From Hinterglemm Mitterlengau a beautiful hike leads into the end of the valley. About the Forsthof alp leads the circular route to Saal alp and continue to Lindling alp, via a suspension bridge to the Baumwipfelweg. Return journey by bus to Maishofen.

Journey by bus to Zell am See, your goal is the mountain railway Schmittenbahn. By enclosure you reach the peak of mountain Schmittenhöhe on 1.965m. Enjoy the unique view onto lake Zell as well as an impressing panorama view onto numerous 3.000m peaks. After the visit of Elisabeth chapel you walk down into the valley, first you reach mountain Sonnkogel, then Sonn alp and finally Zell am See. Take your time for a stroll through the city. You return by bus to Maishofen.

Directly from Kammer palace you enter your ‘royal stage’ onto mountain Schwalbenwand, Maishofen´s local mountain (2,011m). Along varied trails you first walk to the peak in Maishofen, and a little later you can also reach the plateau of mountain Schwalbenwand if you want. It is well worth the effort and you will be rewarded with a unique panoramic view onto the snow-covered peaks of Hohe Tauern, the Steinerne Meer and the local grassy mountains. You return via Kammeregg alp where you recharge your batteries with a glass of cider and a bacon sandwich.

A leisurely tour at the end of your hiking week in Maishofen. Follow the young Saalach to Ratzenstein-Höhe on the Stammgäste-Weg. A forested mountain range continues to Neunbrunnen and down to the idyllic Waldsee, on whose banks it is worth resting. Back you hike comfortably across the fields and meadows to Schloss Kammer.
