Hiking in the Hochkönig region.

Vacation between summit happiness and mountain lakes.

At the peak of emotions: We wake up on a wonderful vacation day. The sun hasn’t risen yet, only the high summits of Hochkönig & co. are covered with orange light of the morning. After a substantial breakfast we lace our new mountain boots and grab our rucksack from INTERSPORT Maria Alm and we start our adventure by exploring the most beautiful hiking paths and mountain tracks of the region!

Hiker’s Paradise Hochkönig Region

Step by step into the wonderful nature of the mountains. The air is fresh and clean, the rocky towers rise up high and the meadows and forests are lush. Along cliff faces, mountain lakes and alpine huts, it goes up towards the summit cross, surrounded by breathtaking flora.

We walk along a wonderful hiking path. In total there are over 340 km of marked paths and over 100 different tours to take. The route is well-signposted and it’s easy to orientate ourselves. The Hochkönig offers a top-class hiking route network in summer. Whether long-distance hiking trails or a panoramic hike – everyone will find their perfect hiking trail here.

Families can look forward to theme trails and adventure trails – a portion of summit happiness for young and old. Family hikes show the children the mountain world in a playful way and are decorated with rest areas and experiences – so you always can enjoy a break.

When we stop at a cozy hut, we taste homemade products and enjoy life as hikers. The numerous alpine huts offer a delicious stop on the way back, one or the other alpine pasture also offers overnight stays on the mountain – a very special “mountain hotel”.

Regional delicacies at the mountain huts

The tour goes on and leads us deeper into the alpine landscape. Finally, a rustic alpine hut with a flag in the front comes up on the horizon – not a moment too soon. We are looking forward to a break. Kind people welcome us tired hikers, and present their best and self-made products of the region. CULINARY DELIGHT FROM THE REGION – in the Hochkönig region this is not only a slogan. Try our special dishes such as Bladln, Bauernkrapfen and fresh Kaiserschmarren – that’s how you get back energy for the rest of the way that is still waiting for us.
