Guided Walking Holidays - Maria Alm

Climb the Hundstein peak with changing perspectives as you walk with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Brilliant views of the peaks and glimpses of marmots, deer and horses along the way. A trip to the amazing gorge at Wießbach. Even an impromptu yodeling session - all memories of Maria Alm which is in the Hochkönig region of Austria, in the Salzburgerland close to the border with Germany.

The valley is dominated by the rocky peaks of the Hochkönig Massif which provide the awesome backdrop for much of the walking in this area. The valley boasts 220 miles of well marked and maintained hiking paths and we cover much of the 45 miles of the Königsweg long distance trail. The rustic mountain huts provide welcome rest stops, with beer, coffee and apple strudel along the way.

Above Maria Alm, the Hundstein peak at 2117m is an achievable target for strong walkers and presents no technical difficulties. We can explore all the postcard perfect villages along the valley including Hinterthal, Dienten and Mühlbach.

Our departure on the 13th June will be at a more leisurely pace to allow time to appreciate the flora.

Why not combine our Maria Alm holiday with our Bad Hofgastein holiday? Please see our Salzburgerland Alps holiday for more details.
