Hiking Together

Salzburger Lungau holds a wealth of hiking routes ranging from easy to challenging in store for hiking fans of all ages. 

You can also explore the mountain world of Salzburger Lungau on guided group hikes or accompanied by one of our official hiking guides with expert local knowledge. 

Guided Star Hike

As so often in summer, this community hike begins at dusk, shortly after sunset, meeting at the Ludlalm car park. Especially impressive: seeing the sky grow steadily darker above your head and gradually observing the stars emerge in the night sky. 

In summertime, this hike gives you a spectacular opportunity to look up into the heart of the Milky Way. You will also be able to marvel at the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter.
