Well prepared for hiking on the Hochkönig: what mountain equipment and clothing you need. Plus tips for suitable provisions on your hike.

Cosy and indulgent breaks while hiking

Enjoy your break at the mountain inns

The prospect of a well-earned rest break, a drink on the terrace and delicious mountain inn treats is all part and parcel of almost any hike. The Salzburger Land and therefore the Hochkönig region too are famous for their high concentration of catered hill farms. Be indulged, lean back and enjoy the hospitality and socialising on the mountain.

Meeting points for mountain lovers

A cool drink in front of you, the mountain panorama before your eyes and the enticing smells from the kitchen – once you’ve sat down on a cosy bench on the mountain inn terrace you know that the effort of hiking or the mountain bike tour was worth it. Afterwards, loungers invite you to lean back and just gaze at the sky. Hike from inn to inn or choose an inn as the final destination for your hike: the next mountain inn is usually not far away on the Hochkönig.

The mountain inns in the Hochkönig region are open during the summer season from June/July to October.

Hill farm experiences

There is quiet a bit to experience apart from relaxation and indulgence at the mountain inns in the Hochkönig region. Playgrounds for children, Kneipp pools to cool your feet down or herb products made from mountain herbs: while away the time, chat to the hosts and get to know the region’s special features.

Mountain inn treats

Aromatic “Kaiserschmarrn”, hearty “Pinzgauer Kasnocken”, “Kaspressknödel”, “Speckbrot” and much more: the treats made by the mountain inn hosts using fresh ingredients from the region and some even homegrown, are sure to tickle your taste buds.

Vegan and vegetarian options

In the Hochkönig region they even know how to make meat-free gourmets happy with dishes packed with quality: numerous hill farms and mountain inns also have various vegan and vegetarian options on their menus.

These mountain inns await you in the summer with healthy treats with no meat or animal products at all:

  • Maria Alm: Jufenalm, Steinbockalm and Wastlalm
  • Dienten: Zachhofalm
  • Mühlbach: Karbachalm, Pronebenalm, Tiergartenalm and Zapferlalm
