From Lake Königssee to Lake Wörthersee

Crossing the Alps via the Hohe Tauern-mountains into sunny Carinthia.

The silhouette of Mount ‚King Watzmann‘, located at the shimmering Lake Königssee welcomes you in a striking fashion. From here you embark on an impressive crossing of the Alps, packed with diversity and hence can hardly be surpassed: In Berchtesgaden-national park you hike through the Steinberge-mountains into the Salzburg-region of the Pinzgau and across green pastures towards the grand mountain massif of Mount Hochkönig. Via the green Gasteinertal-valley you reach the imposing Hohe Tauern-mountain chain – picture-perfect mountain hiking. An ancient pass-crossing finally leads you into Carinthia, where impressive gorges in the Hohe Tauern-national park guide you into the Mölltal-valley. Past numerous lakes, one more inviting than the next, you discover the hiking paradise around the Nockberge-mountains before you are welcomed by the turquoise-green waters of Lake Wörthersee.
