340 km hiking freedom in the Salzburger Land

Hochkönig - the natural jewel in the Austrian mountains

Whether in spring, summer, or autumn, every step taken while hiking in the Hochkönig region leads into nature. Clean mountain air, towering cliffs, idyllic alpine pastures, fresh pastures, and fabulous views of the surrounding mountain world – that's pure relaxation during the holidays. The 340 km long trail network is well signposted and distinguished with the Austrian Hiking Quality Seal.

In addition to herbal hiking and the culinary "Königstouren Bike & Hike" tours, the "Königsweg" and the Green Nine are hiking highlights where you can hike carefree and without luggage, climbing one mountain after another. An additional advantage of the hiking and vacation region is the weekly guided hikes offered in all three locations by trained hiking guides. Another top highlight is definitely the six summer cable cars that effortlessly take you from the valley to the mountain, ensuring your summit victory. What should not be forgotten in the summer is the historical Bartholomä pilgrimage from Maria Alm across the Steinerne Meer to the Königssee.
