This hike leads past the Berglandhaus, which used to be the earlier ski center in Grossarltal. As early as 1932, the Berglandhaus was one of the first houses in the province of Salzburg, which was open to the public.

In the middle of the fifties in the last century (1955-1958), the Berglandhaus experienced a real boom: the then owner was Sepp Forcher. According to Hedi and Sepp Forcher, the time they spent in the mountain hut was the most beautiful in their lives.

The route continues to the Arltörl, which is the deepest incline between Grossarl and Dorfgastein. Directly at the Arltörl is a small chapel.

You desend to the Heumoosalm, where you can taste local delicacies. Then you hike to the middle station of the Fulseckbahn (cable cars), from where you can go very comfortable into the valley.

Back to Grossarl, you go by train to St. Johann im Pongau and further by public bus into the Grossarltal.

Author’s recommendation

There is a swimming pool near the valley station of the cable cars.
