Distance 49.2 km
The "Salzkammerweg" adventure trail leads around the "Hoher Sarstein". The cross-regional circular hiking trail presents itself with a lot of variety. On its approximately 48-kilometer-long route, marked adventure points provide information about agricultural, geological, historical and prehistoric features. Due to the good connection to public transportation, the trail allows for interruptions and later continuation. The hike can be started in the Ausseerland as well as in the Inner Salzkammergut and is suitable for all ages. A good addition is the boat trip on the Hallstättersee.
The stages are described according to historical epochs or traditional use:
- From Koppenrast to Hotel Wasnerin the "path through the wilderness".
- From Hotel Wasnerin to Waldgraben the "Historic Salt Trail" stage
- From Waldgraben to Kriemoos the "Roman Trail
- From Kriemoos to Au the "Goiserer Almweg" (alpine path) From Au to Koppenrast the "World Heritage".

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
