Hiking and Nordic walking in Austria

Experience Aussee during your holiday

Hiking in the Salzkammergut is a wonderful way to discover the natural and cultural landscape step by step. Mountains, lakes and forests ensure varied and relaxing hours when hiking and walking.

Hiking trails in Aussee

  • A hiking tour up the Loser Summit:
    (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

  • Stroll through Altaussee:
    Discover your holiday resort Altaussee with a nice walk through town. The old church, the Kurhaus, the salt water graduation tower, the old villas, all this and so much more is part of the unique flair of Altaussee.
  • A round walk around Lake Altaussee:
    The 7 kilometre walking path around the lake, which will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete will open one spectacular view across the lake after another. 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.
  • A walk to the Blaa Alm Chalet:
    The path leads you via blooming flower meadows and through forests until you reach the idyllically located Blaa Alm Chalet, where you will be able to taste regional and Styrian specialities and titbits. Seevilla Tip: During May the meadows around the Blaa Alm are dotted with wild, fragrant Narcissus – a truly magical experience.

Autumn hiking in Salzkammergut

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.

Comfortable walks

A comfortable autumn walk in Aussee offers peace and happiness. Discover the valley, take your time to take in the landscape. Along the way various inns invite you to stay for a snack.

On the water you will best find recreation. The Lake Altaussee is perfect for a circular walk with 6.3km. You will walk about 2.5 hours around the wonderful lake and will discover several lovely spots, which serve as nice places for a break.

Advanced hiking

Climb the local mountain – take a hike on the Loser! The hike to the summit takes about 2.5 hours, you can choose from various levels according to your experience and stamina. Choose your own pace and your own path.

Climbing like the pros

If you have good stamina and experience we recommend a hike on the 1,953m high Sarstein. You will manage an altitude of 1,000 metres in 5 hours. Don’t forget to bring warm clothes for the summit with you. In autumn it can get quite chilly at this altitiudes.
