Hiking holiday in Faistenau
The Alte Post your hiking hotel in the Salzkammergut
A Rucksack and hiking boots, a snack for in-between what more do you need to be happy. When hiking in the Salzkammergut you will forget everyday problems and experience the pure beauty of the mountains of the Salzburger Land. The mountain pastures around Faistenau are full of magical Places of Happiness which are waiting to be discovered.
And when you have found your Place of Happiness, then stretch out, take a break and enjoy the beauty of Nature all around you. A hiking holiday in Faistenau is not charging up mountains with a camera, but well-being for body and soul. Back in the valley, head for one of the nearby lakes for a refreshing dip to complete a great day´s hike.
Hiking with your host
Twice a week, your host of the Alte Post, Andreas Teufl himself, will accompany you on his favourite tours into the mountains of the Salzburger Land. Over mountain pastures ablaze with wild flowers, to the pastures of the Salzburger Pasture Path, where mountain farmers will serve hearty snacks of produce from the region: mountain butter, smoked ham and fresh milk from the cattle – a true highlight during your hiking holiday in Faistenau.
When the morning dew glitters on the meadows, you are already on foot and hiking in the Salzburger Land. The pleasant cool summer night is not over, but when dawn breaks, one experiences the first rays of morning sunshine. Then the golden morning sun breaks through from behind the mountain peak, lighting up the mountains and valley for you and your guide. Andreas Teufl takes you to the summit of the Faistenauer Schafberg where as a reward you will enjoy a hearty mountain breakfast, before the easy march down to the valley.
