5630 Bad Hofgastein, AT
Time on trail: appx. 4 hours, gain: 1.250 m
After riding up on the Schlossalmbahn, our hike begins in the direction of the Brandner Hochalm. In this
remote recess of the valley, we are impressed both by the virgin mountain wilderness as well as the avalanche
blasting equipment next to the longest ski run in the Eastern Alps – which must be simply marvelous in winter as well. During a short break at the Brandner Hochalm, we are also able to catch a glimpse of two other huts with opportunities for refreshments – and they’re not far away. Following the Leidalmbach, an old supply lane leads in the direction of the Fundner Heimalm. The rush of this untamed mountain stream is a source of refreshment and inner harmony alike. Our valley descent takes us over the Vogeltenn to Bad Hofgastein. Alternatively, we might select an easier variant leading to the mid-station of the Schlossalmbahn.
Free admission with your Gastein Card! You have to pay for the bus, taxi, cable car and consumption.
