Through a sea of orange: Autumn hiking in Salzkammergut
Walks, hiking tours and summit experiences during your holiday
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.
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.
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.
