Crystal-clear mountain lakes and powerful waterfalls plunging into the valley, looking around, you see a breathtaking panorama in every direction. Water in the mountains is powerful, no matter which forms it takes. When you stand on the shore of a glittering lake in the midst of the Salzburg mountains, you feel the pristine beauty of nature with your whole body. These seven hikes of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty will take you directly to the shores of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the southern province of Salzburg. No matter which route choose, you will be accompanied by mighty gushing water along the way.
Families stroll around the turquoise blue Jägersee, ambitious weekend hikers climb up to the Bockhart lakes and real mountain goats take on the 1300 meters (4265 feet) climb to Schuhflickersee. The beautiful thing about the crystal-clear mountain waters of the Salzburger region is that they can be found at different altitudes. This makes them the perfect picnic spot after a relaxing stroll, as well as a haven of peace after a long ascent.
The starting points of these seven hikes can all be reached by public transport. We've also picked a few nice huts for you because a hearty meal is the best way to end your adventure. Take a look at our routes and maybe you will soon gaze into your own reflection in the calm mountain waters.
The Jägersee lies in the valley of the Kleinarl valley at an altitude of 1,099 meters and surrounded by the magnificent mountain peaks of the Radstädter Tauern.

The hike to the Lower and Upper Bockhartsee starts relatively steep. A path leads through the forest. But not for too long.

This tour takes you into the legendary world of the Tappenkarsee, the largest mountain lake in the Eastern Alps. Thanks to the steep but easy path, this hike is also suitable for families.

The hike from the valley of the Almen to Schuhflickersee takes several hours and is therefore recommended for endurance hikers. Also a summit - the Schuhflicker with 2,214 meters height - is part of the route. Therefore, you should definitely bring good footwear and the corresponding experience. At the…
The Gasteinertal has so much to offer on fantastic hikes. A real insider tip slumbers in Bad Gastein, at 1,831 meters and at the feet of the carpentry group. The climb is steep, it is important that you wear good footwear and have provisions with you. But the reward follows on the heels: the Reedsee…
No pain no gain. Under this motto, you start your tour from Dorfgastein center towards Paarseen. That makes them relatively long. But the paths are easy to walk on and, as everywhere in the Gastein Valley, wonderful views await you on the way. And a hut to stop off.
