Hiking in summer in Lofer
The Almenwelt Lofer in the Salzburger Saalachtal ranks among the most beautiful Alms in Austria.
Out and About with the Family
The two Almbahn lifts bring you quickly to the Almenwelt Lofer, over a vertical distance of around 700 metres. On arrival at the top, you reach the extensive hiking alm. After a short walk, there is a new alm adventure playground. The extra-large play climbing tower, the salamander slide, the water feature, the zip-wire, the animal rockers and the various loungers are all designed around the theme of flowers and animals of the Almenwelt Lofer. This wonderful stomping group for children further enriches all that is already on offer in the Almenwelt Lofer.
Whether you travel up or down with the gondola, you really must stop by at the mountain station Loderbichl (Almbahn I), where a new circular route with petting zoo awaits you. An absolute top spot for big and small. The best view in the Almenwelt, at the Loferer Steinberge and in the Heutal you can enjoy from the top of the new observation tower at the Schwarzeck. The tower is opened summer and winter and can be reached by a cosy 45 minutes circular hike starting at the top station of Almbahn II.
Experience a special highlight in the Alps. Let yourself be guided to a mountain peak in the Almenwelt Lofer where you can watch the sunrise. Afterwards, there is a delicious hearty alm breakfast. During the summer months, our hiking guide Waltraud leads a weekly sunrise hike in the Almenwelt Lofer.
