The “Golden Autumn”: warm sunshine, clear skies and colourful leaves.

We have selected eight hikes for you, on which you can explore the valleys and mountains of the PillerseeTal with the whole family.
Do you fancy a little action and variety between your hikes? The PillerseeTal has prepared just the right thing for you: Travel back in time on the Triassic Trail on the Steinplatte and get to know mighty dinosaurs. Visit the largest summit cross of the Alps on the Buchensteinwand, which is even completely accessible. Visit the climbing forest, the game reserve and the summer toboggan run at Lärchfilzkogel. Or you can take the roller coaster and the white water ride in the Familienland Pillerseetal leisure park.

This beautiful hike leads you right at the foot of the Loferer Steinberge up to the cozy Schießlingalm. After a well-deserved break, we will then travel through the wildly romantic Grieseltal with its lively stream back to the starting point of St. Ulrich am Pillersee. If you have enough time for your rest on the alpine pasture and for smaller breaks in the Grieseltal, then the tour is a treat for the whole family.Starting point of the hike is the center of Ortisei at the Pillersee. From here, the trail leads you first without major gradients across meadows along the Lasbach along to the district of Weißleiten. Here you leave the stream and the ascent to the Alm can begin. In some hairpin bends, the trail meanders through rustic mountain forests. When the forest clears, you have a wonderful view of the towering mountains of stone. One last section about mountain meadows and you have reached the Schießlingalm.
The view from the Buchensteinwand above Fieberbrunn is great anyway, but once you've climbed up in the summit cross, the panoramic view will overturn you.

Our tour takes you from St. Jakob in the house on well walkable paths up to the summit. From there you finally float down the mountain railway down to the valley. Of course, if the ascent is too exhausting for you, you can also plan the tour in reverse order.From the starting point of the hike you first stroll along the banks of the Anzentalbach over wide meadows and fields. First you walk here on barely traveled asphalt roads, but soon the ascent route leads you into a cool mountain forest. On beautiful trails it goes steadily uphill.
