Hiking – the Salzkammergut area offers a huge variety to stretch one’s legs after too many weeks at work or in the office.
Mount Zwölferhorn is just around the corner from the apartments. The hike is about 2 hours, but if you want to take it slow, go for the nice little panorama cable-car.
Mount Schafberg welcomes you every time you look out of the apartment window. The hike is a little longer, about 3 hours but you can take the historic rack railway from St. Wolfgang to Schafberg Alm and hike the last bit which is only about one hour. The top of Mount Schafberg offers you stunning views to Lake Fuschl, Lake Mondsee, Lake Attersee and Lake Wolfgangsee. Some recommendations: Hiking, Mount Schafberg
