Hikes for every requirement

You can hike with the family, e.g. on the Koppenrundweg. The Salzburg Almenweg invites you to long-distance hikes and the Arnoweg to pilgrimage hikes. Do you love themed hikes? Then the "Bauernregelweg" and "Mondweg" circular routes as well as the large local circular route are just right. When hiking to the summit, you might conquer Altenmarkt's local mountain, the Lackenkogel (2,051 m). And those who prefer cable car hiking can easily take the Gamskogelbahn I in Zauchensee to alpine heights.
