Hiking trails in Aussee

(2 hours from Altaussee to the Loser Chalet, 2.5 hours to the summit, the path leading via Blaa Alm Chalet is slightly longer)
Get to know the local mountain of Altaussee, and conquer the Loser Summit in Aussee! Start your hiking tour directly in Altaussee or conquer some altitude metres by car on the Loser panorama road (subject to a toll fee) this variety is recommended if you want to undertake a more relaxed walking tour on the Loser Plateau.
- A hiking tour to the Trisselwand: (2.5-3 hours walking time)
From the Seevilla you will reach the hiking path leading up the Trisselwand from the Altaussee lake path. A secure step and being free of vertigo are essential prerequisites for reaching the summit – as well as good mountaineering boots. But it’s all worth it: un-matched views down to Lake Altaussee and Lake Grundlsee will make up for it all.
The perfect places for relaxed walks in Aussee

The path leads you past villas from the 19th century, always along the lake until you reach the "Seewiese" swimming area where you will stop for a break, soaking in the views of Lake Altaussee and the mountains. On your way back you will pass numerous old boat houses, whose dark aged wood is original and homely.

Walking through a sea of orange
Salzkamergut is a true nature paradise, a gem in the middle of Austrian Alps. The true sparkle of the region becomes especially visible when the trees’ leaves change their colour in autumn. Take a hike through a sea of colourful leaves! The rich lake landscape and the surrounding mountains lure every nature lover outdoors, where it never gets boring.
The hottest days are over now and you don’t have to start your hike on the mountains at an unearthly hour, like in the summer to avoid the lunchtime heat.
Autumn promises a milder alpine climate and relaxed hiking tours on peaceful paths as well as secluded hut terraces.
