Heart rate, sweat and expansive views: TRAIL RUNNING – get your running shoes on and away we go!
Tie your laces and head off down unknown tracks. Start right from the Reiterkogelbahn cable car (300 m). From there, run slightly uphill to the Reiteralm hut and then on up to the Speichersee Lake cross. After you pass the glittering lake and its crystal waters, your calves will be screaming, because you’re now on the steepest part of the trail.
But you’ll be rewarded with views of the magnificent Hinterglemm Alps from the very peak of the Reiterkogel. Run along the ridge, past the Rosswaldhütte restaurant and back to the Reiterkogelbahn lift, which will take you back down the valley.
Feeling your pulse: Kneipp water therapy right outside the door – cool and refreshing for tired legs
Bring yourself completely into the here and now, feel alive and hear your heart beating. The beneficial effects of a Kneipp session are right outside our front door. This ancient healing therapy promotes general wellbeing and strengthens the immune system. Start your daily reinvigoration with the Kneipp path in the family park. The three different pools, lined with rocks and with crystal-clear mountain water, really make your legs tingle. As you’d expect, they’re very cold. But as you wade through the water, you stimulate your circulation and metabolism, promote blood flow and strengthen your veins.
Info: Bring a towel and warm socks.
The crystal clear Hintersee lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park: an adventure for the whole family
Discover a breathtaking natural wonder as you look into the crystal clear waters of Hintersee lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park, surrounded by steep rock faces. The best time to visit this impressive spot is the morning, when the sun’s rays glitter especially beautifully on the surface. A good place for a lunch break or a snack is the Gamsblickhütte hut, which serves regional delicacies such as Alpine cheeses, cured ham and home-made bread.
And another highlight awaits you: Just a few steps from the hut is the head of the valley, and as you walk towards it you’ll see a few little waterfalls along the route, and then a spectacular large waterfall.
Location: Mittersill, around 1 hour by car from the Rosentalerhof. The Hintersee lake lies to the south of Mittersill at the end of the Felber valley and it can be easily reached by car; there is a car park within walking distance.
