This hiking tour starts in the Ellmautal at Grund - parking possibility. You hike up on a path through the forest and then over alpine meadows to the Ellmaualm. From the Ellmaualm you have a great panoramic view to the Hochkönig.

Further you hike along the Salzburger Almenweg without any great rise to the Weißalm. You stay on the same way and hike to the Loosbühelalm, where you can taste besides cheese made out of milk from cows, goat's cheese.

You hike further to the Filzmoosalm. This mountain hut is situated in beautiful alpine surroundings.
