Hiking in Altenmarkt / Zauchensee

Experience nature by foot

In Altenmarkt / Zauchensee awaits you the unique combination of a cosy familiar and a sporty-demanding hiking area: the lovely village Altenmarkt (842 m) embedded in a wide, open basin, characterized by fascinating forest ridges and simple hiking peaks, surrounded by an impressive mountain scenery and the hotel village Zauchensee in Almhöhe (1.350 m), surrounded by alpine picture book mountains.

The certified hiking village guarantees unforgettable hiking pleasure through unique hiking diversity. More than 20 marked hiking trails over 195 km in length around Lackenkogel and Steinfeldspitze invite you to hike in the hiking paradise Altenmarkt.

Hikes for every requirement are waiting to be explored by you: the Koppenrundweg invites you to a family hike. Go on a long hike up the Salzburger Almenweg or go on a pilgrimage to the Arnoweg. The desire for thematic hikes can be fulfilled on the circular routes “Bauernregeln” and “Mondpfad”.

For example, while hiking on the summit you conquer the Lackenkogel (elev. 2,051 m), Altenmarkt’s local mountain. Cable car hiking is also possible on the Gamskogelbahn I in Zauchensee.

Take a leisurely stroll with the stroller on the Zauchbachweg and the local and Ennsrundweg. Of course you can also join the guided hikes.

For a nice hike in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, a visit to one of the many huts and alpine pastures is just the thing. Stop in, taste local delicacies and be fascinated by the surrounding mountains. The 1 Euro Salzburger Sportwelt-Bus takes you to the starting points and back again.
