Hiking in Zell am See Kaprun


Legend Trail - “Mystical Forest”

An exciting journey into the world of sagas. Numerous stops along the forest path are an incredible experience for the whole family.

The trail starts at the summit station of the Sonnkogelbahn. The path leads for the most part downhill through the forest till the final destination is reached, the Schmiedhof Alm. There, the adventure playground makes the hearts of the kids beat faster.

Maiskogel Hut Tour

This hike across alpine pastures to mountain huts is easy, filled with variety and very suitable for families as well as nature lovers.

From the town center of Kaprun, you will first enjoy a comfortable lift ride on the MK Maiskogelbahn up to the Maiskogel mountain terminal at 1,570 m.

This is where the actual Hut Tour begins: The flat path leads in a westerly direction through mystical forests to the traditional Unterbergalm (1,570 m). Now heading north, you will climb gently to Alpengasthof Glocknerblick (1,670 m), which is also a scenic lookout point. Now dropping in elevation, the path brings you to Maiskogel Alm Ranch (1,540 m) with its petting zoo.

Before returning to the valley, you might wish to treat yourself to one final refreshment break at the Saulochalm (1,570 m), located directly below the Maiskogel mountain terminal.
