Hiking on the Hochkönig

Hiking tours in the Hochkönig region

A day full of different opportunities lies ahead of you when you wake up on the Hochkönig early in the morning. After an invigorating breakfast at the Bergheimat Hotel a network of 340 kilometres of hiking paths are at your feet. For a more convenient ascent you will find 5 summer cable cars operating on different days. You just have to choose your favourite trail, pack your backpack and start walking in your hiking boots.

The perfectly sign-posted tours lead you through the Hochkönig region to alpine pastures and huts, past mountain lakes and also to various educational stations. Informative adventure hiking trails show you the Salzburgerland's natural environment from a different angle. We highly recommend these educational trails, especially if you take a hike with your children. From the legend's hike to the forest & butterfly tour and the marmot's path: entertainment and fun is guaranteed.

Hiking on the Hochkönig, as far as you want to go

Take a break

A very special and individual hiking experience awaits you on the Königsweg (King's Path). This long-distance hiking trail with a length of 73km runs past the Bergheimat Hotel. This hiking path can also be taken on stage-by-stage and still makes a beautiful hike: walk through lush meadows and lovely smelling forests, and next to you rough rock formations loom up to the sky. Take a break in one of the rustic huts along the Königsweg.

Salzburger Land Almenweg

The Almenweg leads through most of the Salzburgerland Alps and its first three stages run along the Hochkönig. The mountains' beauty and peacefulness accompany you on this alpine trail and lets you get away from your everyday life and recharge your batteries.

Guided hiking tours

Don't miss out on the mountain world's highlights! During a weekly hike organised by the Bergheimat Hotel and accompanied by your host you will enjoy a relaxed time with other alpinists and can also discover the most beautiful spots around the Hochkönig: to the Hochkeil mountain top with an outdoor alpine buffet, to the Schneeberg mountain top, via the Stegmoosalm to the Königsweg, to Jakob at the Pronebenalm or to the Bürglam, where farmer Gabi will welcome you. A refreshing finish for every hike is a walk through the Kneipp pool at the local mill in Mühlbach. Afterwards the hiking bus will take you back to the Bergheimat Hotel.
