Arrival in Altmünster and check-in at the hotel. Use the day for a stroll through Gmunden and a boat trip on Lake Traunsee.

Hotel example: Panoramahotel Traunstein in Altmünster

 

To get in the mood for the hiking week, climb the Grünberg, the Gmunden local mountain. At an altitude of around 1.000 meters, a natural landscape with a recreational factor opens up. You can reach Lake Laudachsee in a short time via comfortable walking paths. Return to Gmunden and travel by train to Bad Ischl.
Hotel example: Hotel Goldener Ochs in Bad Ischl

Today you hike across Nussensee to Strobl and on to St. Wolfgang. This stage includes the Bürglsteig, an extremely romantic path that leads around a rocky outcrop directly on the shore of Lake Wolfgangsee. Bus return to Bad Ischl.
Hotel example: Hotel Goldener Ochs in Bad Ischl

Katrin is on your hiking agenda today. This mountain is a popular destination for hikers and ski tourers in Bad Ischl. When the weather is good, 7 lakes can be seen on your way to the summit cross. Descent from the Katrin Alm to Weißenbach and further into the center of Bad Goisern.
Hotel example: Landhotel Agathawirt in Bad Goisern

 

Our advice: Book an additional night in Bad Goisern after day 4. On the one hand, a rest day is an advantage, on the other hand, this day is perfect for a trip to the 2.042 meter high Krippenstein. Probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps offers a breathtaking view over Lake Hallstatt at a depth of 400 meters. We recommend a boat trip to Obertraun, ascent and descent with the Krippenstein cable car, return trip to Bad Goisern by train.

Train ride from Bad Goisern to Hallstatt/Bahnhof.
Option 1: Take your time on a ferry ride to Hallstatt and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then follow the lakeshore to Obertraun and continue along the Koppentraun to Bad Aussee.
Variant 2: You walk along the east bank hiking trail to Obertraun and along the wild Koppentraun into the Ausseerland to Bad Aussee. The path through the “wilderness” turns out to be a pleasant hiking trail and is good and easy to walk.
Hotel example: Hotel Erzherzog Johann in Bad Aussee

On flat hiking trails and forest roads you reach Bad Mitterndorf, the end of the Salzkammergut lake hike, via the romantic Ödensee and the Steinitzalm.
Hotel example: Hotel Kogler

Return by train to Gmunden and individual journey home.
