Choose a route that suits your personal preferences and start into an alpine expedition to alpine streams, mountain lakes and breathtaking summit experiences. More than 120 mountain huts offer a variety of possibilities for delicious breaks and charming overnight accommodation.

Discover the Salzburger Almenweg from Wagrain-Kleinarl

3 of the 31 stages of the Salzburger Almenweg can be accessed directly from Wagrain-Kleinarl:

“Broad valley basins, rustic huts and meadows in bloom“: The 17 km long stage 17  leads from the Grafenbergbahn mountain station to Ellmaualm in approx. 7 hours of walking time.

Stage 18, “On the trail of Karl Heinrich Waggerl and Joseph Mohr”, is a little shorter (12 kilometers). In approx. 4.5 hours, it leads from Kleinarl up to the Grafenbergbahn mountain station.

Stage 19 ("scenic alpine hike") takes you from Kleinarl to the Kogelalm at the Flying Mozart cable car mountain station (closed in summer 2021). On this panoramic high-altitude hike, almost 1,500 meters are covered on 13 kilometers, which amounts to about 5.5 of pure hiking pleasure.

All three routes can also be hiked in the opposite direction, with arrivals in Wagrain-Kleinarl.
