Tour III – World heritage tour with the Goiserer hut in Bad Goisern and Gosau

+ Delicious Discoveries: products from the Alm hut

The defining feature of the Salzkammergut has always been the visual drama between the countless small and large lakes nestling in the abruptly rising mountains of the Northern Alps. The newly established long distance trail links these hotspots in a never seen before, comprehensive way. On 19 stages or 337 km, plus several regional circuits, a new walking experience takes form. Discover lush Alpine meadows, fairy-tale forests and invigorating waters in a cultural landscape of outstanding authenticity.

General information:

Daily stages are moderate to challenging; hiking distances in the valley can be adjusted easily by public transport. A reasonable fitness level and basic hiking equipment like good hiking shoes, rucksack, rain and sun protection, functional clothing and also a warmer jacket or pullover are necessary to enjoy your trip.


This tour follows the middle stages of the S-Trail and leads into the heart of UNESCO World Heritage region Hallstatt-Dachstein-Salzkammergut!
