- About Radstadt
Whoever embarks on the "Trail of the Blue Gentian", finds happiness
directly along the way: in 120 Alpine huts, with overnights in the hay or
when eating Pongauer delicacies. In doing so, the Salzburger Almenweg
(Salzburger Alpine Trail) and its hut people always tell stories of happiness
and of a supposedly long lost world.
The popular looping hiking trail leads right through the Salzburg Pongau region
with its famous holiday areas such as the Salzburger Sportwelt, Tennengebirge,
Grossarl Valley, the Gastein Valley, the Hochkönig holiday region, the Salzburger
Sun Terrace and Obertauern. There are 25 towns in Salzburg’s Pongau region
and they're all valley locations of the Salzburg Alpine Trail: from anywhere, hikers can head into the 350 kilometre long hiking trails and also descend again into a valley. There are 120 Alpine huts along the way in which you can rest or spend the night. Hikers can, but don't have to, head back into the valley. Whoever longs for a longer break from their daily routine simply remains up above in this summer Alpine meadow world with its people, animals and stories.
The route 27 from Radstadt to Filzmoos is a jewel of the Salzburger Alm trail: If the ascent over the thickly wooded Schwemmberg to the Rossbrand (1,768 m) is a pleasure, the hiker opens up to the summit a 360 ° panorama with a view of 150 marked Alpine summits, which is probably unique. For this, the Radstädter Hütte invites you to take a break below the summit, before embarking on a descent into the charming mountain village of Filzmoos.
