Salzalpensteig-path: Bavaria & Salzkammergut Region

Hike path to St. Barholomä

Hike in Austria & Germany along the salt-route

Once high up in the mountains, once deep down in the valley: the new premium hiking path Salzalpensteig leads you to the most beautiful places of the alpine uplands and the low and high mountain ranges. The long-distance hiking path is open since the early summer of 2015, crossing borders through Upper Austria, Salzburg and Bavaria.

With Eurohike you can rest assured that you will not miss out on any of the highlights. Treasures such as Lake Königssee in the Berchtesgadener Land, Lake Chiemsee, the Salzkammergut region and the most stunning mountain panoramas await.
