The Salzburger Almenweg is a 350 km long foray through the Pongauer mountains in Salzburg, Austria, which leads over 120 pastures. No other federal state in Austria has such alpine density as the SalzburgerLand. Each pasture and hut has its own unique charm and none resembles the other.What is the same, however, is the hospitality and warmth with which the hikers are received. You will be served there with g'schmackigen Almspezialitäten as fresh milk, cheese, butter, curd cheese, yogurt, bread, bacon or a homemade schnapps. Maybe something of the good Brettljause falls off your four-legged friend ?!Along the Salzburger Almenweg are huts, like the Buttermilchalm or the Schlossalm, but also lesser known ones like the Weissenhofalm, the Fallhausalm or the Kögerlalm, which are real insider tips under Bergfexen. Although the first leg of the Salzburger Almenweg requires more than 12 kilometers of energy, the fatigue seems to be forgotten at the latest at the stop. Some tourist accommodation even specialize in dogs. The Berghotel Arthurhaus am Hochkönig, for example, has its own dog menu as well as a fenced playground and a dog course. Even a dog whisperer regularly visits the weekends. Dogs stay here for free! Paired with the expansive meadows of the Salzburger Land, your four-legged friend will find the perfect conditions. Promised.
