HIKING HOLIDAY AT THE HOCHKÖNIG

340 KM OF HIKING PATHS & MOUNTAIN HUTS AT ALMOST 3,000 METRES

More than 340 km of hiking paths, all of them with interesting aspects, leading to pretty Alpine huts and high mountain peaks at an altitude of almost 3,000 m make the Hochkönig the best and most popular hiking region in the whole of Salzburg province. The Übergossene Alm nestles in this wonderful hiking area - walkers will love exploring every part of it.

THE RIGHT TOUR FOR EVERY HIKER

You might set off pushing your child's pram, or to conquer a high peak, but whatever you do, the Hochkönig hiking region has something for everyone. All options are open to you, ranging from walks through the valley to an ascent to the highest point of the Berchtesgarden Alps, the 2,941 metre-high Hochkönig. We will be pleased to help you choose and will give you tips about the huts and available leisure options.

The hiking bus will take you part of the way if you wish, stopping directly at the hotel.

Use the Hochkönig region tour portal at www.hochkoenig.at to plan your hiking route. 

PERFECT HIKING AND ALPINE MEADOW NETWORK

A large number of huts are located on the slopes of the Hochkönig, in a closely linked network of hiking paths. Of course, the great advantage is that you don't have to plan ahead, but can simply start your walk, as there is always a hut nearby.

REGIONAL DELICACIES AND SUNNY SPOTS

Whether you're hiking from one hut to the next, or have a definite goal: Pause for a rest on one of the sun terraces. Take a seat on a rustic wooden bench, in the sun or shade, have a refreshing drink and look forward to the tasty delicacies from the region's kitchens and gardens. Some of huts are well-known for their specialities:
