Tour suggestions


Leisurely, easy, 1-hour hike past 3 snack stations. Winter shoes recommended.

This so-called "snack tour" leads through a side valley of Gerlos - the Krumbachtal. The three staffed huts make this valley an especially tasty experience. From the parking lot of the Isskogel lift, hiking path no. 2 leads past the Krummbachrast – here, you will find the best homemade cheese.


Leisurely, 1-hour hike in the picturesque Schönachtal. Suited for families with children's strollers up to the Lackenalm. Light winter shoes recommended.

Hiking path no. 5, which leads slightly uphill along the Schönachbach in the Schönachtal, begins across from Gasthof Oberwirt. After a short stop at the Stinkmoosalm, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the valley, you will reach the Lackenalm snack station (1,400 m) in around 1 hour. A gorgeous winter panorama is awaiting you on the sunny terrace


1-hour hike along the Schwarzach. Best suited for families with children's strollers. Sturdy winter shoes are recommended.

The Schwarzachtal is the perfect place to get accustomed to the sport of hiking. The hike leads from the Geislerhof past the Gmünd reservoir and continues from here to Gasthof Kühle Rast. The path leads through a small stretch of forest slowly uphill. You will hike around 1 hour along the Schwarzach to the Schwarzachalm snack station. Awaiting you here at an elevation of almost 1,400 m are delicious Kaiserschmarrn pancakes!


1-hour leisurely hike for families with children's strollers. Good winter shoes are recommended. 

The Wimmertal is a place for leisurely hikes. Head straight from the Geislerhof to Hotel Kröller. Across the road on the other side of the valley, a path leads slightly uphill - this is the entrance to the Wimmertal! After ca. 1 hour of easy hiking on path no. 6, you will reach the Wimmtertal snack station. An excellent insider's tip here is the Wiener schnitzel with the gorgeous mountain panorama.
