Hiking and chalet experience Halserberg-Rittisberg

Open
Relaxing stroll through nature, passing by cozy chalets and inns and lush green meadows.

 

Rittisberg and Halserberg are two of the most wooded hiking areas in front of the south face of the Dachstein. The trail is also suitable for prams (the section from Sonnenalm to Ochsenalm Inn is a bit more difficult, but is also possible with pram). The comfortable huts Halseralm, Sonnenalm and Ochsenalm offer tasty delicacies of the region. The flambéed Kaiserschmarren, the free-range animals to pet, the huge children's playground, where children can climb, jump, drive with a go-kart, … and the nature hunters trail are an experience for all ages!
