The 7 most beautiful peaks in the Salzburger Sportwelt
From spring 2018 one of the largest and most exciting hiking adventures in the Austrian Alps - the ‘7 most beautiful peaks in the Salzburger Sportwelt’ - awaits nature and outdoor enthusiasts. The 7 resorts of Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl, St. Johann, Radstadt, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Eben and Filzmoos are all very different, yet united in their alpine beauty and create a world of opposites, in which each individual can experience the exact downtime he needs. This region is entwined with its many mountains and peaks, which seem omnipresent and have stimulated people’s longing forever. Those wishing to get to know this area in the heart of the SalzburgerLand more closely whilst enjoying moments of a special nature, should conquer the ‘7 most beautiful peaks in the Salzburger Sportwelt’.
The Hohe Tauern with the first 3,000 m peak on the one side, the Tennengebirge and Hagengebirge mountain ranges on the other and the Hochkönig taking centre stage. The view from the Penkkopf (2,011 m) couldn’t be more impressive. A sea of 300 peaks awaits you at the Hochgründeck (1,827 m). Before undertaking the descent back down to St. Johann, a stop for refreshment at the Heinrich-Kiener-Haus is recommended.
Here you can find the route to the Penkkopf and to the Hochgründeck.
The trail up to the Spirzinger (2,066 m) leads from Flachau to the Südwienerhütte and onward over a ridge to the very peak. There unbelievable views of the surrounding Radstädter Tauern mountain range are guaranteed. If you hike further along the ridge you come to the Spatzeck. The Rossbrand - Radstadt’s local mountain - is somewhat unique, as the 1,768 m high panorama mountain can not only be reached by mountain bike and on foot, but by car and wanderbus too. The panoramic view of the Dachstein, Bischofsmütze, Grossglockner and Grossvenediger from here is equally as priceless.

The Gerzkopf is an absolute natural gem, and due to its unique alpine flora and fauna has been declared a European Nature Reserve. As well as ringing the bell at the peak you can enjoy a splendid view of the Bischofsmütze. The imposing Lackenkogel gets its name from the ponds (Lacken) which are centrally located on the Lackenalm. Ascent is either from Altenmarkt/Zauchensee or Flachau.
Here you can find the route to the Gerzkopf and to the Lackenkogel.
The highlight of the ‘7 most beautiful peaks’ is surely the Bischofsmütze (2,458 m). To ensure a safe and enjoyable ascent from Filzmoos, you should certainly take advantage of the knowledge and experience of a mountain guide.
