Waking up at dawn in a mountain hut, hiking over mountain meadows in the tender blue of the new day, and then having a breathtaking panorama from the summit over the glistening water of Lake Wolfgang—this awaits you on the only two-year-old BergeSeen Trail in the Salzkammergut.

The Salzkammergut has a varied landscape to offer: In the north the hilly foothills of the Alps, large lakes, quiet valleys, the rocky peaks of the Salzkammergut mountains and the impressive karst landscapes of the Dachstein massif and the Dead Mountains. On 23 daily stages and a distance of over 350 kilometers you walk from Gmunden from lake to lake, over mountain pastures and along thundering mountain streams. The tour takes you along the glaciated mountains of the Dachstein massif and at the foot of the Höllengebirge and over the karst plateau of the Dead Mountains. The well signposted path mostly runs along good hiking trails and only a few rocky passages have to be crossed on the way. The stages end in small villages, lonely inns and wildly romantic mountain huts. Thanks to the well-developed bus network, you can also put together your favourite stages as a weekend tour and shorten the ascents with cable cars or hut taxis.

But if the mountains are calling you, you can adapt the long-distance hike with the Alpine variants according to your wishes. The five variants lead you through the mountains of the Höllengebirge, the Dachstein massif and the Dead Mountains. The Alpine sections are especially suitable for experienced mountain hikers and you can plan them in place of certain stages of the main route on your personal hike. In addition, there are three regional variations on which you can explore the hills and lakes of the foothills of the Alps in detail. Both the Regional Variations and the Alpine stages are perfectly suited as an independent tour for a long weekend due to their length.

Just put together your personal tour and hike through the Salzkammergut on the BergeSeen Trail.

    With its quite a few meters in altitude, stage 4 looks like a whole lot of work. So first of all: Using the cog railway to the Schafbergalm (schafbergbahn.at) can save you a bit of time and a lot of ascent. From the Schafbergalm you then go down to the stage destination St. Gilgen with a wonderful view.
