Gnadenalm: Hiking fun for the whole family
Family hiking fun Alles Alm
At 1275 m above sea level, the Gnadenalm plateau is surrounded by the stunning peaks of the Radstädter Tauern group. Expansive fields, picturesque forestry and unspoilt scenery provide the perfect backdrop for a very special family hiking experience. The circuitous routes are suitable for push-chairs and there are plenty of stops along the way for young trekkers to play in the sun. Kids can try to balance on the super-sized rake and sickle, visit the groundhog family in their den, test their dexterity on the Kuhfleckensprungmeile wobbly platforms, see the giant cow at the Almwasser playground – and much more. The theme stations provide interesting details and fascinating facts about life up on the mountain. The mighty Johannes waterfall is also definitely worth a visit, and can even be inspected from behind. The Gnadenalm is only 15 minutes’ drive from Radstadt.

The waterfall experience
A spectacular extra on this circular trail is the approximately 60 m Johannes Waterfall. There’s a special pathway leading off the kids’ trail. What’s particularly impressive is that the narrow pathway takes visitors round to the back of the waterfall.
How to get to the Johannes Waterfall:
Walk from the front of the Gnadenalm and take the path to the rear part of the Gnadenalm. Turn right by the signpost just after the alpine huts in the direction of Johanneswasserfall. The extra walking time from the kids’ trail to the waterfall is about 40 minutes, and ramblers need to watch their step in certain places.
