Winter hiking Hollenauer Kreuz

Description

This exciting yet idyllic winter hike starts at the village square in Going, which is a famous filming location for the German-Austrian TV series “Der Bergdoktor” (The Mountain Doctor). Enjoy the view of the picturesque Wilder Kaiser, a towering sight opposite the church with its rugged and prominent peaks. If you exit the square to the east, you will come directly to Söllnerweg. This merges into a footpath that slowly leads you up the Astberg mountain. Can you see the snow crystals glistening? Do you feel the rays of sunshine tickling your skin? And aside from the sound of your shoes crunching through the snow, can you hear anything except the silence of snow-covered nature? On the way, you will pass the Gabelhof and other rustic farms before reaching the Hollenauer Kreuz intersection. Continue on through the wintry forest where the sun shines between the branches. Upon reaching the small Plattensee lake, you will find a cosy wooden hut with an inviting bench for taking a break. The frozen pond is testament to the sheer cold of the winter. Keep following the signposts in the direction of the Hollenauer Kreuz and enjoy the sense of calm as you make your way towards your destination.

On reaching your destination at 1,030 metres, you will be rewarded with the best natural viewpoint for marvelling at the Wilder Kaiser mountain range, which is within touching distance. Also, don’t miss out on sampling the delicious homemade apple strudel at the Hollenauer Kreuz refreshment stop. It tastes even better from the comfort of a deckchair while soaking up the sun! Tip: as the ski slope runs right past the building, it is a great meeting place for skiers and winter hikers.
