SalzAlpenSteig – unlimited hiking pleasure
This long-distance hiking trail runs for 230 km through diverse natural environments and through the centuries-old salt districts of Bavaria and Austria.
Hiking back in time into the history of salt mining. Those wishing to leave their everyday lives behind for a few days and indulge their Wanderlust will find that the 18 daily stages offer a moving experience in beautiful natural surroundings. Each stage is individual, and offers its own special natural treasures. Yet they all have one thing in common: salt. The long-distance trail leads along historic brine pipelines, past the houses of salt miners and into the depths of the exhibition mines.
Berchtesgaden, Hallein and Hallstatt. The route is enriched by three of the loveliest lakes in Europe: Lake Chiemsee, Lake Königssee and Lake Hallstättersee. All the details of the Premium long-distance trail and 25 other SalzAlpen circuits can be found here.
