Lake Walking Salzkammergut with Charme

Hiking: Lake Walking Salzkammergut

White Horse Inn, Imperial Summer Residence and UNESCO Heritage.  

‘Most beautiful country in all time’ an old folk song claims and this quote truly applies to the Austrian Salzkammergut. Mountains, lakes and picturesque places belong to one of the most beautiful treasures of the world. This uniqueness has been recognized by UNESCO and the region Hallstatt has been declared UNESCO Heritage of nature and culture. 

Itinerary

From St. Wolfgang on Saddle walk to lake Schwarzensee. Here the lake cabin of Lore is worth a break with its delicious homemade snacks. Via Wirer gorge into the valley and around Bürglstein to the lake promenade of Strobl. By coach to the old Imperial summer residence Bad Ischl.

On the brine pipeline trail to Bad Goisern, the gateway to UNESCO heritage Hallstatt. If you want to walk a little higher, you can hike on the spectacular mountain trail of the “Eternal Wall”.

Sehr Empfehlenswert
Uns allen 4 Personen hat die Wanderung im Salzkammergut sehr gut gefallen. Die Touren waren sehr abwechslungsreich und auch für Schwimmbegeisterte wie wir, ideal! Einzig eine Wanderkarte im gesamtmaterial haben wir vermisst, obschon die Touren ja bildlich hervorragend beschrieben sind, wie auch die Sehenswürdigkeiten. Daumen hoch und das machen wir wieder!! Herzlichen Dank!!!
