The Königsweg in the Hochkönig region is one of the excellent hiking trails. However, the centre of a good hiking region is the hiking village as the starting point for the hiking experience. Excellent hiking villages are Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach. As you can see, the entire Hochkönig region is an excellent hiking region!
The nature around the Hochkönig is full of herbal treasures. During the herb hike you will learn everything you need to know about these plants. You can hike with experienced herb teachers or go on the herb trail on your own.
On the 13 herbal alms you will find dishes, teas, ointments or spirits made from herbs on the menu. At herbal workshops, the knowledge is put into practice.
Recently, the Hochkönig region has also started offering herbal hikes for children, which are all about amazement, learning and collecting.
Follow in the footsteps of ancient knowledge in the Hochkönig region during your hiking holiday and family summer!
Right behind the wood a wooden roof appears - an alpine hut. At the 71 alpine pastures and huts in Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach the hiking breaks taste really good. Fresh mountain air and exercise make you hungry. At the hut you will be welcomed with a hearty "Grias Di". From the kitchen Gröstl and Kaiserschmarrn smell up to the terrace. The view is magnificent. Warm rays of sunshine and regional delicacies create a good atmosphere. You can endure it here.
Fans of meatless cuisine will also get their money's worth. On numerous alpine pastures and huts you will be spoiled with delicacies - completely vegan and vegetarian.
Hike from hut to hut, it will do you good!
