On the northern edge of the Salzkammergut there are two large lakes - the Irrsee and the Mondsee. And although the two lakes are jointly called 'The gateway to the Salzkammergut', they could not be more different. The more northern Irrsee lies in the middle of a wide hilly landscape, while the Mondsee is framed by steep rock walls. On the Irrsee, not a single motorboat touches the water, while water sports enthusiasts flock to the Mondsee. The Irrsee is a place of peace and seclusion, while the Mondsee is a lively destination. And the hiking trails around each destination are as varied as you might expect, taking you through comfortably hilly landscapes, past extensive stretches of lake, over summits and across exciting mountains.

We have chosen ten hiking trails between Mondsee and Irrsee. Families can hike comfortably along the Dragonfly Trail, pleasure hikers can circle Lake Irrsee, and ambitious outdoor sports enthusiasts can climb up to Almkogel. Even the toughest Alpinists will find something for them in this region, with the Drachenwand and the famous Schafberg inviting you to accept their challenge.

All you have to do is choose your favorite hike, grab your boots and off you go on your next mountain adventure.

    On the west bank of the Mondsee, the Drachenwand towers almost vertically into the sky. If you stand at the foot of the massive rock face, you can hardly imagine getting to the summit without climbing equipment. However, a narrow and exciting path leads from St. Lorenz up to the summit ridge. For this

    The Irrsee is undoubtedly one of the most scenic lakes in the Salzkammergut. The entire lake is protected today and therefore there are no houses on its shore.

    The Hochalm is an open grazing area on the wooded eastern slope of the Mondseeberg. Once upon a time, the Almsee Monastery stood up here, but today no animals are kept there and the buildings have already been cleared away. Nevertheless, a hike to the beautiful mountain meadow is worthwhile, because
