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.
