Culinary trail

Culinary trail

Description

Walk from the village centre in the direction of the Hartkaiserbahn. At the junction to the valley station, however, continue straight on uphill. Pass the "Bergdoktor-Praxis" and continue to the Faistenbichl district. Here the forest path branches off to the left towards the Rübezahl-Alm. Hike uphill through the forest until you reach the rustic mountain hut. Culinary delicacies and a fantastic view of the Wilder Kaiser round off the hike. If you are fit enough, you can hike further uphill to the Jägerhütte, where you can enjoy the marvellous panorama on the sun terrace.
Return along the same route to the tarmac road. Here it is worth making a detour to the Hochschwendt mountain inn with its popular cakes and Tyrolean specialities (additional approx. 1 hour walk there and back). A leisurely walk back down the valley and back to the village centre of Ellmau.

Attention! The winter hiking trail between the Hartkaiser mountain station and the Jägerhütte is no longer groomed. Walking on the ski piste is prohibited!
