Salzalpensteig – Hiking Trail 1

On ancient Salt Paths from Lake Chiemsee to Ruhpolding.

The new extensive hiking path ‚Salzalpensteig’ takes you along old former paths, on which salt was transported, commencing from the pretty banks of Lake Chiemsee, the ‚Bavarian Sea’, all the way to Ruhpolding, the ‚Bavarian Fjord’. Walk along idyllic forest and rural tracks through a quaint but also charming landscape with small villages, characteristic farm houses and cow pastures. Not only popular holiday destinations such as Bergen, known for the cable car on the panorama mountain Hochfelln, the famous biathlon village of Ruhpolding and the historic salt/saline village Bad Reichenhall await on your hiking week, but also unique high-altitude hikes with magnificent views onto the ‚Wilder Kaiser’ mountain, the Chiemgauer Alps and last but not least the ‚Steinerne Meer’-mountain range with the two summits Watzmann and Hochkönig. In the course of your tour you come across plenty of huts and alps for a well-earned break and to sample some of the regional delicacies. During your hiking week through the ‚Bavarian Salt-Alps’, you will also learn many things worth knowing about the four Bavarian brine pipelines, about culture, history and traditions of the Salt Alps population.

Tolle Auszeit
Für uns war die "kurze" Tour am Salzalpensteig eine tolle Auszeit im Corona-Jahr. Buchung und Organisation vor Ort waren perfekt, obwohl aufgrund Pandemie kein persönlicher Ansprechpartner vor Ort war. Wir konnten uns voll aufs Wandern konzentrieren und die tolle Landschaft, die Herbstsonne und die schönen Unterkünfte genießen. Ansonsten eine tolle, entspannte Tour, die wir gerne einmal fortsetzen würden!

Eine spannende Wandertour über viele Pfade und Almen
Uns haben sehr die Ausblicke von erklimmten Bergen und die Almen mit Einkehrmöglichkeiten gefallen. Das Highlight war jeden Tag das Ziel zu erreichen, obwohl man oft vor oder während der Wanderung gedacht hat... Wie soll man das nur schaffen... Und es hat sich jedes Mal am Ende gelohnt. Ein tolles Gefühl. Wir hatten super angenehmes Wetter Mitte September und auch fast täglich sehr gute Unterkünfte.

Wunderschön
Eine Wanderung über 6 Tage war eine wunderbare Erfahrung, die wir zum erstmal gemacht haben und sicherlich nicht zum letzten mal. Alles top organisiert und ausgearbeitet. Die Wegbeschreibung beinhaltet auch meistens eine Alternative für eine kürzere Strecke oder den ÖPNV. Wir sind trotz vielen Regens die Strecke komplett gelaufen und waren überwältigt von den fantastischen Erlebnissen und Eindrücken. Zu dem Punkt „Betreuung vor Ort“ können wir leider keine Angaben machen, da nicht mitbekommen.
