The Salzburger Almenweg Regions
The award of the Hiking Seal of Quality has simply confirmed what summertime visitors to the Hochkönig region have known all along: This area is one of the best hiking regions in Austria. This great distinction doesn’t only apply to the 340 km of perfectly marked hiking trails, but also to the wealth of hiking opportunities that constantly excite active vacationers of all ages. Here, every fan of the mountains and nature is certain to discover a tour destined to become their own personal favorite.
With the Hochkönig Card, which you will receive from partner businesses, you can take full advantage of 6 different mountain lifts in the region along with the Hochkönig Hiking Bus, absolutely free of charge, and incorporate them into your tour planning.
Daily from Monday to Friday, guided hikes through the surrounding hill country as well as high-alpine mountaineering expeditions (“Alpine Package”) led by professional mountain guides are offered, for an outdoor activity program that is as varied and enjoyable as you could possibly wish for.
Aside from many different and rewarding destinations, such as the Hundstein (elev. 2,117 m), the Hochkeil and, of course, the Hochkönig (2,941 m), the Königsweg trail is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful hiking tours. Experienced rock climbers and mountaineers also find their own piece of heaven here with us, on the Hochkönig massif/Mandelwände, as well as on fixed-cable climbs known as via ferratas!
