Pinzgauer Spaziergang (2000)

Definitely one of the most beautiful hikes I have done in my three (almost) years in Austria. We began our journey on a Sunday morning at the Pinzgauer Hütte, where we also spent the night before. The hut itself was very nice – extremely clean showers with warm water, cosy bedrooms, delicious (yet heavy) dinner…

Tappenkarsee (1762)

Tappenkarsee had been on my hiking wishlist for quite a while. Luckily enough, the weekend before my birthday turned out to be a perfect opportunity to finally realize this plan. The drive from Salzburg to Kleinarl took me around an hour and a half. (Theoretically, it should take less than that, but I am a…

Schober (1328)

Not gonna lie – Schober is my personal favourite. This is where I did my first birthday sunrise hike this year. I am pretty sure this is the best spot for 360 view of the Salzkammergut lakes. Schober is a little tricky – a rather steep hike through the forest evolves into a bit of…

Untersberg (1972)

I have a love-hate relationship with Untersberg. I tested the mountain for first time on a sunny Saturday at the end of May. I opted for the famous Dopplersteig – a chain of rather steep and exposed staircases that made my heart beat a little faster. The total hike took 3.5 hours and was quite…

Nockstein (955)

I like Nockstein a lot. Short yet intense – but only if you pick the steep route #70  starting on Wolfgangseestraße. It is a good after-work or morning hike, as the mountain is located just outside of Salzburg (15 min by car from the city center or 20 min by bus #150). The total ascent…

Schoberstein (1037)

Schoberstein was the first hike I have  ever done in the Salzkammergut area. I was quite excited to see what the lake fuss is all about. After suggesting the route to my friend, we decided it would be a good opportunity to see the lakes from above while getting some workout done. We drove to…

Gaisberg (1288)

Gaisberg has a special meaning to me, as the mountain of my many “firsts”: first time exploring the region outside of the city, first proper hike in Austria, first opportunity to make new friends, and the first decent view from an apartment I can call my own. Situated just outside of the city center, Gaisberg…
