Description

You set off from the hiking info point in Ellmau to Faistenbichl where you can have a look at the famous “Bergdoktorhaus”, the doctor’s practice in the TV series. Hike on trail no. 1 to the “Ehemalige Bergschenke” intersection and continue on trail no. 3, a forest road, to the rustic Rübezahl-Alm mountain hut with a terrace with spectacular views of the Wilder Kaiser. This is the start of Austria's longest Schnitzfigurenweg (a sculpture trail with carved figures) (no. 3a) to the Jägerhütte mountain inn.
The last part is steeply uphill to the Hartkaiser summit station at a height of 1,520 metres. At Ellmi's Zauberwelt (Magic World) children can go treasure hunting in the fairy tale forest whilst the adults explore the nature trail. To return you can follow trail no. 1 on a forest road and a steep forest trail via the Hochschwendt refreshment stop back to the hiking info point in the village.

Our tip: if your feet are aching you can also use the new Hartkaiser gondola lift to return into the valley.
