Salzalpensteig – Hiking Trail 2

FROM THE BERCHTESGADENER LAND INTO THE WORLD HERITAGE-REGION SALZKAMMERGUT.

On this hiking tour from Bavaria to Upper Austria, you literally hike the trail of salt! The regions in and around the Salzkammergut were built on this white gold. On the hiking tour you can expect to see breathtaking mountain ranges, lush green forests and meadows, as well as crystal-clear lakes. Anyone who has always wanted to know how salt was mined in the past will certainly get their money’s worth on this tour.

Details of the mountain hiking tour Salzalpensteig 2

You will travel on well-marked hiking trails from the beautiful Königssee in Bavaria, through the Tennengebirge mountains, over the Dachstein region to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hallstatt. After a scenic boat trip to the legendary pilgrimage chapel of St. Bartholomä, the salt mines in Dürrnberg and Hallstatt are next on the agenda. Special panoramic views will be your constant companion on this trip!

Highlights of the cross-border hiking tour:

  • Unique views of the Tennengebirge, the Dachstein Glacier, the Krippenstein and many other imposing mountain ranges.
  • Salt pipeline and salt mines: The historic mines on the Dürrnberg or in Hallstatt – choose one or visit both!

Wandertour mit vielen Highlights
Jeder Tag hatte Highlights zu bieten. Ob das der Stollenweg, die spektakulären Salzachöfen oder der Austriaweg mit traumhaften Fernblick war. Jeder Tag war etwas Besonderes. Obwohl keine Betreuung vor Ort möglich war, waren die Reiseunterlagen so ausführlich, das wir mit der Tourenbeschreibung und dem Kartenmaterial die Touren ohne Probleme wandern konnten. Die Hotels waren sehr unterschiedlich, aber in allen Hotels war das Personal sehr freundlich und das Frühstück war immer sehr gut gewesen. In allen Hotels hatte man sich auf Grund der Corona Pandemie Gedanken über die Büffetform gemacht. Auch hier zeigte sich das Personal sehr kompetent. Und da auch die Gäste alle rücksichtsvoll und vorsichtig waren, habe ich mich immer sicher gefühlt. Als Bergwanderung (drei Berge) war die Tour für mich schon sehr anstrengend, aber auch sehr eindrucksvoll. Ich hoffe, das ich im nächsten Jahr mit der Unterstützung von EUROHIKE erneut eine Wanderung in Angriff nehmen kann.
