For Little Climbers and Mountain Goats – the Litzlkogel
Salzburger Saalachtal Tourismus Verified partner Explorers Choice

In brief: The hike is mainly on hiking paths or wide trails across the alpine pasture. In the last section you follow a relatively steep mountain path where sure-footedness and a head for heights is needed. There is a rope to hold on to attached to the rock. Therefore the tour is more suitable for little mountain goats with some previous experience. The return to the Litzlalm follows the same trail and from there along the forest road back to Hirschbichl. Refreshments are available at the Litzlalm as well as at the end of the tour at the Alpengasthof Hirschbichl.
Tour highlights: The Litzlalm with the Jausenstation, the alm huts and cows... and of course the summit experience on the Litzlkogel. Don't forget a summit photo and an entry in the summit book ;)
The tour is part of “Hiking with Kids” in the Salzburger Saalachtal. The duration and difficulty are suitable for children/families.
