Attersee-Attergau planned a hike.
August 15, 2019
The Hochlecken is one of the most popular mountains in the Upper Austrian Salzkammergut betweenAttersee and Traunsee. There are several routes that will guide you to the 1,572 meter high mountain. This almost ten kilometers long variant starts at the parking lot at the Kienklause.You walk along the Zwieselbach until you meet hiking trail number 823. This will take you up the mountain in a zigzag course. Initially, you will still walk through the shady forest, later the trees will give way and the path will lead you over free alpine areas. On the way you will pass some nice resting places, where you can breathe deeply and enjoy the great panorama.Soon you will already see the Hochleckenhaus in front of you, which stands on top of the mountain. From here you have a beautiful view of the lake district and the surrounding Höllengebirge. Give yourself a long break with a hearty snack before you walk down the same path to the parking lot again.
