Hiking on the Schmittenhöhe - the Highlight
Breathtaking view of the lake Zeller See
A perfect panoramic view is guaranteed!
At about 2,000 m above sea level is the Pinzgauer Walk. It is one of the most beautiful high-altitude trails in the Eastern Alps with breathtaking views of the peaks of the Hohe Tauern. First you take the Schmittenhöhebahn to the top, then the well-marked high-altitude trail leads you in a westerly direction - past Kettingtörl, Kettingkopf, Kesselscharte, Rohrertörl, Kammscharte, Klingler Törl, Medalscharte, Sommertor and over the Murauer Scharte to the Bürglhütte in Stuhlfelden.
Throughout the tour, the Salzach Valley, which is about 1,000 meters lower, spreads out at your feet. Above it, well-known peaks such as the Großglockner, the Kitzsteinhorn, the Granatspitze, the Sonnblick and the Großvenediger rise into the air. The trail is about 25 km long (without descent).
