Hiking Tips

Hiking-Tour for children

Different play-stations for kids are awaiting you and your family. Here, you may experience wild-life and nature with all senses and finally reach our local hut “Wildbachhütte” which is located on 1806 meters above sea level. Despite a gorgeous view over Lungau’s villages, adults as well as children are awaiting delicious dishes, a playground, a slide and a ropeway. You may also enter the path with a buggy!

Gumma and Kreuzhöhe

From Wildbachhütte it takes you 1 hour to reach the top of Gumma, which is also a mountain for ski-tours and is provided with a very easy hiking tour. Kreuzhöhe is more demanding (2 hours from Wildbachhütte).


Easy, 1 ½ hours up to the first of three lakes (1778 m); time-distance between first to second and second to third lake: 45 minutes. You may also continue your tour up to Schöneck.

Zwerfenberg with Klafferkessel

Beautiful,fairly easy but demanding hiking tour. Departure: from “Laßhoferhütte” towards “Hinteralm”; walking-time up to “Gamsenalm” 2 hours; time-distance to lake “Zwerfenbergsee”: ½ hour; if you continue the path on the left you’ll reach the “Lungauer Klafferkessel

You may also take a view at the “Steirische Klaffer”: therefore, you simply have to continue your way past “Angersee” up to “Waldhorntörl” (time-distance from “Angersee”: 45 mins) This hiking tour is demanding, but definitely worth the effort! 


Only for experienced hikers! From the “Waldhorntörl” we’ve already mentioned earlier, you may follow a small tagged path up to the top (2702 meters above sea level).


Small but beautiful lake with view to the “Hochgolling” – the highest mountain in the “Niedere Tauern”

The tour takes you through Lessach’s small hut-village “Hinteralm” past a waterfall up to “Gollinganger”. From “Gollinganger” you may enjoy the magnificent view up to “Hochgolling”.

If you follow a path that proceeds on the very left you’ll get to “Gralatisee”. Hiking time: 2 ½ hours


Hochgolling - Highest mountaintop in the “Niedere Tauern” (2862 m) .

We recommend to take the path that proceeds from our neighboring village “Göriach”. From “Göriach” you pass Göriach’s hut-village towards a hut named “Landawirseehütte”. After 1 hour turn right towards “Gollingscharte” (about 1 ½ hours hiking-time). It takes you another 1 ½ hours up to the peak. You may descend towards “Gollinghütte”.
