One of Austrias best kept secrets, Maria Alm is in the Hochknig region of Austria, in the Salzburgerland close to the border with Germany. The valley is dominated by the rocky peaks of the Hochknig Massif which provide the awesome backdrop for much of the walking. The main and side valleys boast 220 miles of hiking paths which are well marked and well maintained. The variety of walking is excellent, including forest paths, pastureland and higher mountain trails. Trails throughout the valley will appeal to those interested in butterflies and flowers. The rustic mountain huts are one of the areas particular charms, these are magical places which provide welcome rest stops along the way with beer, coffee and apple strudel. One of our regular clients says this is the best moderate grade alpine holiday we have ever run and has returned every summer since 2015. There is a wealth of walking, from strolls through flower-filled meadows to more challenging walks to peaks over 2000m. We cover much of the 45 miles of the Knigsweg long distance trail. We use the local Wanderbus which travels along the valley throughout the day and stops at all major walking trails and in all the villages. There are a number of ski lifts open throughout the summer, offering further possibilities to extend the walking to higher levels and with the opportunity to reach peaks such as Klingspitz at 1988m, Schneeberg at 1938m and Hundstein at 2117m. The local transport pass is included. Why not combine our Maria Alm holiday with our Bad Hofgastein holiday? Please see our Salzburgerland Alps holiday for more details.
