Hike near Salzburg to the highest grass-covered mountain in Europe with the oldest refuge in the Alps:
You don’t often find a mountain with a view like the Gamskarkogel (2467m), which is also relatively easy to reach: the view not only encompasses the entire Hohe Tauern range, but also the northern Limestone Alps from the Wilder Kaiser to the Dachstein. No wonder Archduke Johann had a shelter built on the summit in 1829: The first hut in the Austrian Alps to serve only mountaineering purposes! The OeAV Bad Gastein section took over the hut and extended it in 1933 – the historic shelter was retained as a kitchen room. The hut was renovated in 2013, but without changing its rustic character. From the Grüner Baum (1066m), the trail first climbs steeply across a meadow. But the path soon becomes more pleasant and the view over the Kötschachtal valley and to the Tischler group even more attractive. Additional motivation is provided by the friendly gnomes along the way with their encouraging sayings. We climb along the sunny south-facing slopes to the Poserhöhe, a magnificent viewpoint over Bad Gastein. From the Poserhöhe, you hike briefly over alpine pastures, then relatively flat through a fairytale mountain forest with gnarled, lichen-covered trees. Only when you cross the tree line do you make a noticeable climb up to the Tofernscharte (2091 m), a crossing to Grossarl. Now in hairpin bends over the summit slope to the highest point with the Badgasteiner Hütte. The view is magnificent, as are the sunrises and sunsets. An overnight stay up there is sure to be an unforgettable mountain experience.

From Gasthof Lackenbauer, the trail leads via the Lafenmahder or from the parking lot at the Angertal ski center along the Angerbach stream to the forester’s lodge. Follow the well-marked forest path to the Gadauner high pastures.

The Graukogel is known for its particularly beautiful and ancient Swiss stone pine population, some trees are 250-300 years old. As the Swiss stone pine was chosen as the tree of the year 2011, you can take a 45-minute walk directly from the mountain station of the Graukogel cable car. Linger in idyllic places, use the individual seating made of Swiss stone pine wood for a short break or try out our large outdoor Swiss stone pine bed! Swiss stone pine also has the effect of lowering the heart rate. This promotes relaxation, because Swiss stone pine truly touches all the senses.

From the Valeriehaus on the Bockhartsee power plant road to the old miners’ houses. From there, the marked footpath branches off to Lake Bockhart. You can also follow the factory road to the last bend before the tunnel and only use the footpath from the bend onwards, the tunnel is closed.
