This was a very nice walk! Starting in St Gilgen, this path goes around the lake, up some (steeper than expected) hills, through the woods and then down to St Wolfgang. Very nice scenery and St Wolfgang offers a great stop for lunch when you...More
Did this twice, once from St Gilgen to St Wolfgang and again from Ried Falkenstein to St Gilgen. Pleasant walk but not a stroll, limited views of lake once the path climbs. The path is wide, but loose stones demand decent shoes. Take water as...More
This trek was recommended by the owner of the pension we stayed at. We started at St. Wolfgang and it was one of the best things we did on our 2 week trip to Austria in the last week of December 2017. The hike is...More
Wow. Not only was this hike my favorite thing I did in the Salzkammergut, I genuinely think it was the most memorable experience of my entire two-week trip to Europe. I am so happy and grateful to have learned about it through TripAdvisor!
Glance at a map and this looks like a lakeside walk - but don't be fooled! There's a lot of height to be gained and that means there's quite a bit of uphill to be done (and downhill!).
We walked it from St Wolfgang to...More
We stayed in St Gilgen and hiked from our hotel to St Wolfgang. We are fairly fit (mid 30's) and did it in just under 4 hours. The beginning is flat and easy walking, mostly shaded, around the lake Then the path turns inland and...More
We walked to St Gilpin via the Pilgrims Pathway. It was an attractive walk through the country side and lead us up to a chapel built into the hillside. The healing water looked a bit manky so we gave that a miss but the church...More
Don't be fooled by the idea that this is a "family walk"! You need to be fit to get up the very steep pilgrim path (particularly for seniors) but it is really worth the effort... Interesting information along the way, gives you an excuse to...More
It is possible to walk the path in winter; however it will depend on the amount of snow. If you have good waterproof walking boots and good winter cloths it is a really great walk. The ferry does operate from St Gilgen in... More
It is possible to walk the path in winter; however it will depend on the amount of snow. If you have good waterproof walking boots and good winter cloths it is a really great walk. The ferry does operate from St Gilgen in November / December as it's quite popular with people visiting the advent markets in St Wolfgang.
An excellent walk if you enjoy hiking, is the route from nearby Strobl up Rinnkogel Mountain; however I wouldn't advise doing this with young children or if there is a lot of snow on the ground.
