Plum cake at the table on the alpine pasture on the Gosaukamm with mountain panorama

With this tour, Eurohike is dedicating itself to a very special region of Austria, the beauty of which already fascinated Empress Sissi: the Salzkammergut. Imposing mountains, glittering lakes and charming towns await you here over five days. In addition, the excellent Austrian cuisine - from schnitzel to pastries - and the special hospitality. You will come home with fully charged batteries and enjoy the grandiose impressions for a long time to come.

The starting point of the trip is the village of Fuschl am See. On the very first day, the stage leads to the Wartenfels ruins and, if desired, to the Schober. The ascent is short and demanding, but the view from the summit will instantly make you forget any effort. Promised!

Don't miss the chance to hop into one (or more) of the crystal-clear lakes of the Salzkammergut. Attersee, Schwarzensee and finally to Wolfgangsee - stage 3 leads from lake to lake and offers lush meadows and peaceful alpine pastures in between. Finally, the imperial city of Bad Ischl is waiting for you, the highlights here include the Imperial Villa, the Katrin cable car and the spa gardens. Enjoy the imperial flair with a longer and a piece of cake (here you can still find a traditional “k.u.k. Hofzuckerbäckerei”) before heading back to Fuschl.

  • Hiking as in a picture book: In terms of landscape, the Salzkammergut simply has it all! The characteristic mountains that offer great (but not too difficult) tours. In between, crystal clear lakes as far as the eye can see and green alpine pastures, where huts invite you to take a break.
  • The most beautiful peaks of the Salzkammergut: From Schober to Schafberg and from Feuerkogel to Grünberg - from the lofty heights you have particularly great views.
  • Blue glittering lakes in abundance: Mondsee, Attersee, Irrsee, Wolfgangsee - you are spoiled for choice. In addition to swimming and bathing, water sports can also be tried. Diving, water skiing and stand-up paddling, the Attersee is known as the Caribbean of the Salzkammergut!
  • Discover the highlights of the Salzkammergut on a hike: The famous White Horse Inn, the imperial town of Bad Ischl, the large Attersee, the famous Schafberg or the idyllic Blinklingmoos nature reserve. On this tour you will find deceleration, but with the many attractions you are guaranteed not to be bored.

The tour is very varied with many great viewpoints along the paths. You should plan around four to six hours for the various stages; a good physical condition makes it easier for you. Ferry trips are included on Lake Wolfgang, the tour can be supplemented with a boat trip.
