Hiking for everyone
Walk around the Koppenrundweg with the family. Or try one of the long-distance hikes, like the Salzburger Almenweg or the pilgrim’s way, the Arnoweg. Do you like themed hikes? Then why not go on one of the circular hikes “country lore” and “path of the moon” or a long circular walk around the village. And, if you want to bag a summit, then how about Altenmarkt’s own mountain, the Lackenkogel (2,051m)? If you prefer to take the easy way up, then the Gamskogelbahn I in Zauchensee will take you up to Alpine heights and you can hike from there.
