Bavarian & Salzburg Alps

Lake Koenigssee & hiking paradise Hochkoenig.

Idyllic, mysterious and unique the blue-green waters of Lake Koenigssee nestle in midst of intimidating mountains. Towering peaks and lovely valleys are connected by marvellous crossings. Walk through National Park Berchtesgaden, the only German national park in the Alps. Past flower dotted alpine pastures and through picturesque hamlets you reach the impressive Hochkoenig massif. The glaciers of the National Park Hohe Tauern form a stunning backdrop and alpine cabins with delicious food impress with the unique way of life of this region.

Today one of the most beautiful walking tours on alpine pastures waits for you. Below the steep needle-like towers ‘Mandlwalls’ you walk along the foot of the Hochkoenig massif over to Arthurhouse. Chamois, cattle, horses and countless cabins as well as impressive scenery, you will think you are in the middle of a film set. Overnight if possible in Arthurhouse close to Mandlwalls.

The morning sees you walking up to alpine pasture of the “Hochkönig-Region”. The imposing massif once more opens up to allow stunning views. Walk on the ancient miner’s trail down into the valley of river Salzach and continue to Werfen. There the mighty forest Hohenwerfen is well worth a visit.

One more highlight is in store for you at the very end of this walking week: a long ascent to border crossing Torrener Joch and then to the summit ‘Jenner’ in Berchtesgaden. Transfer into the Bluntautal valley which is closed off by steep rock walls. Climb through the forest and scattered alpine pastures. Once you reach the summit of Jenner you can enjoy the view of the whole walking week as well as lake Koenigssee. Down into the valley by cable car.

Tour character

Beautiful and good walking paths, just a few longer climbs require good basic fitness level and partly surefootedness. If you love alpine pastures, brilliant views and a being high up you will enjoy this tour. The mountain trails with fantastic views of the mountain world and the overnight stays at the foot of Hochkoenig mountain will fascinate you.

Stepping Out Again
Very much enjoyed another walking tour in this lovely part of the Alps. The walk were all achievable within the time scale suggested and quite surprised ourselves with how well we did on day 7 which had a +1388 m ascent arriving reasonably fresh at hotel in Konigssee for 3pm! One of the many highlights was the walk on day 1 that took us down the Seisenberg-Klamm, quite an experience!

Eine wunderschöne Tour, eine tolle Woche
Allein hätten wir das nie organisieren können. Wir hätten uns auch nicht getraut, die Strecke zu bewältigen. Wir haben die Woche sehr genossen.
