Long-Distance Hikes on the Salzburger Almenweg
Trail markings for the Salzburger Almenweg on the Filzmoossattel

The Salzburger Almenweg is a long-distance hike leading through the Pongau district of Salzburg. Extending a total of 350 km, this hiking path is divided into 31 daily stages varying in length, and takes you past over 120 mountain huts. Hikers love the unique concentration of huts in this region, something you encounter practically nowhere else. And no single hut is like another – which means, a good memory is also a must, since each hut has its own name. That said, everywhere you go, you will be greeted by friendly hosts who serve up homemade specialties of the hill country, including fresh milk, cheeses, butter, yogurt, bread, bacon, along with home-distilled schnapps!

You will be accompanied along the length of the Salzburger Almenweg by the picture of a gentian, which you see on trail markings, benches or outside huts. That way, you will never lose track of this delightful long-distance trail.

4 of the 31 total stages of the Salzburger Almenweg lead through Grossarltal, making Grossarl as well as Hüttschlag ideal starting and finishing points for this long-distance trail.

Coming from Bad Gastein, the Salzburger Almenweg leads to Toferscharte Gap. Hikers with the appropriate motivation and stamina should absolutely hike to the top of the Gamskarkogel – at 2,467 m, the highest grass-covered mountain in Europe. Tip: If you want to have the special experience of enjoying a sunrise or sunset on the summit, you should probably spend the night on the mountain, with the Bad Gasteiner Hütte (Gamskarkogelhütte) located right there. Continuing our hike past the Harbachalm, the Salzburger Almenweg takes us to the National Park Village of Hüttschlag, via the Hallmoosalm up to the Karteisalm, then to the Karteistörl.

After a short detour to the Tappenkarsee in Kleinarl, the Salzburger Almenweg leads up to the Draugsteintörl and back to Grossarltal. It then continues to the Draugsteinalmen, Filzmoossattel, Filzmoosalm, Loosbühelalm, Weissalm, Ellmaualm, Grosswildalm, Breitenebenalm, Karseggalm, Unterwandalm, Rothofalm (Muggenfeldalm), Maurachalm and on to St. Johann-Alpendorf  as well as Wagrain.

Alternatively, instead of staying at the same elevation as the huts we have mentioned, you may prefer to take your hike over the nearby ridgelines and summits – as you walk, you will get to enjoy marvelous views of the Tappenkarsee, surrounding mountains and so much more. And of course, from any of the huts along the way, you always have the option of dropping back down to the valley.

After the Salzburger Almenweg leaves Grossarltal, it continues to Wagrain and Kleinarl, then via Obertauern, Filzmoos and Werfenweng to the Hochkönig, via the Salzburger Sonnenterrasse region, and finally through Gastein Valley before returning to Grossarltal yet again.
