Hiking in the Hohe Tauern National Park
Hiking in a paradise where anything is possible!
Enjoy the wonderful natural landscape and the pure mountain air while hiking in the Hohe Tauern National Park region! You will definitely be fascinated by the unique view of the mighty mountain backdrop. During your walking holiday in Fusch am Großglockner, there will be something for every type of hiking enthusiast: leisurely hikes through Alpine pastures, less demanding valley hiking trails and strenuous mountain hikes at heights of up to 3000 metres, which in addition to a good level of fitness also require experience of mountaineering. It is worth mentioning here that we also organise guided mountain hikes – including on the Großglockner – through a native and experienced mountain guide. Information is available and bookings can be made at reception.
If you would like to experience the cliffs at close hand, you will come across any number of exciting fixed-rope routes on your mountain hikes. Professional climbers will definitely be challenged in the Bruck Climbing Garden. Climbing in the hall is completely unaffected by the weather and also constitutes optimum training to prepare for the coming season. Climbing halls are located in Schüttdorf, Zell am See and Saalfelden.

A hike into the Käfertal valley – here even the kids will be amazed!
A hike into the wonderful Käfertal valley is varied and is fun for both young and old hikers. The trail which is suitable for prams leads from the Ferleiten toll station in the direction of the valley head. The many display boards and play stations along the trail are testament to how fun and interesting hiking can also be for children. Everything is on offer here from rock climbing walls to a water park through to a beetle labyrinth just in case the kids get bored. Weary hikers can regain their strength and rest in the serviced Trauneralm hut.
