Description

Start at the Hiking info point in the centre and follow trail no. 1 to the Faistenbichl district past the famous   “Bergdoktorhaus”, the doctor’s practice in the TV series. Carry on to the “Ehemalige Bergschenke” intersection and continue on trail no. 3, a forest road, to the rustic Rübezahl-Alm mountain hut with a terrace and 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 (1,400 m) mountain inn.
The last part is steeply uphill to the Hartkaiser summit station at a height of 1,530 metres. In Ellmi's Zauberwelt (Magic World), children can go treasure hunting in the Fairytale forest whilst the grown-ups explore the nature trail. To return you can follow trail no. 1 on a forest road and a steep forest trail via the Berggasthaus Hochschwendt refreshment stop back to the valley.

Our tip: of course you can also complete a part of the tour using the gondola lift Hartkaiserbahn.
