Salzburger Lungau

Hike, Relax, Enjoy Nature & Reenergize

Awaiting you in this beautiful, pristine recreational area is also an amazingly healthy alpine climate.

Riedingtal Nature Park in  UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg's Lungau is a natural jewel in the Niedere Tauern mountains with mighty peaks and untamed cirques, clear tarns and traditional mountain huts.
A remote, peaceful oasis, the glorious mountain world of Riedingtal is ideal for hiking, relaxation, nature experiences and to discover renewed sources of strength.

"Power of Still Waters" and the "Schlierersee Theme Path".
So that our guests never experience a moment of boredom, here in Riedingtal we also offer theme hikes, out on which you don't only have lots of fun, you can also learn something in the process.

We would like to take this opportunitiy to present our "Alm Hike" to you in a bit more detail:

The Alm Hiking Path  begins at the Nature Park Center, which provides excellent insights into the history of the valley, its flora and fauna,  as well as the network of trails. Starting here, a six kilometers-long theme path leads to eight different mountain huts. Though stations along the path, they also provide excellent refreshment opportunities.

The people who live and work up there serve a wonderful selection of Lungau specialties that are based on traditional recipes. You will hike along the forest's edge, lying to your right, for example, the Untere Eßalm along with the remains of an old smelter and a pile of slag. An info board entitled

"Mining - testimony to days past" recalls the era of copper mining in the uppermost reaches of Riedingtal valley until 1850.

After walking for about 1.5 hours, you will pass the Zauneralm, where your host Heidi is utterly dedicated to the theme "Herbs & Milk". She produces exquisite creams and remedies based on ancient local recipes. The final point of the hike is the Örgenhiasal at the valley head, where fresh butter and buttermilk are produced every day. If you prefer not to walk the whole way, or only one direction on foot, the valley bus will be able to drive you back.

As part of the project conducted by the ECO Institute for Ecology entitled "Certification of theme paths in Austria's nature reserves", our "Alm Hike" in Riedingtal Nature Park was selected as one of the best theme paths in Austria.

Awaiting you in this beautiful, untouched landscape is also the healthy climate of the high mountains. For families as well as individual travelers, a holiday in UNESCO Biospere Reserve Salzburg's Lungau is practically ideal.

Whether summer or winter - you will have plenty of variety and countless activities to choose from.
