Best Hikes to Himmelspforte
  • Mitchell_Krix. ⛰

    After the somewhat more strenuous ascent, of course, the view is tough! When the weather is clear, you really have a good view of every surrounding lake and the breathtaking area.

  • Here begins the challenging north descent from Schafberg. The upper part of the crate is partially insured with wire ropes.

  • The Himmelpforte is an impressive destination or the start of a steep hike. Not for toddlers or people who are dizzy. About 600 meters after or before (depending on the direction of travel) the Himmelspforte it is already quite steep uphill or downhill.

  • There is also the self-service hut, which is cheaper than the one with service.

  • Everyone who comes to the summit cross * passes * the Himmelspforte. * Through * the Himmelspforte only those who come up the very beautiful path on the north side step. ;)

  • Wonderful view from the Schafberg on 5 lakes: Wolfgangsee, Fuschlsee, Mondsee, Zellersee and Attersee.

  • Schafberg with a wonderful panorama of the Salzkammergut and its lakes.
    Regardless of whether you climb via Burgauklamm, Eisenaualm and Himmelspforte, via Vormaueralm, Purtschellersteig and Spinnerin, from St. Wolfgang via the Schafberg Alm or from Winkel via the Schafbergalm, the view is magnificent in all directions.
    You can check the weather at the summit beforehand on the 360 ° webcam schafberg.panomax.at, or via the Gahberg webcam terra-hd.de/attersee over the Attersee to the Schafberg look over.

  • The Forte of Heaven is right next to the summit cross. So two highlights at a glance.
