There are several possibilities how you can reach the Bichlalm: The easiest possibility starts in the Ellmautal, above the Hotel Lammwirt. There you hike quite comforable along the forestry road through the forest. The sportier option starts at the Finsterwald farm (or directly in the village center of Grossarl - approx. 1 h from Grossarl to the Finsterwald farm). You reach the Bichlalm via the Himmelsleiter. The name of this hiking paths gives information about the nature of this path. How else could you get faster to heaven? This hiking path is relatively steep.

Just at the point where you reach the forestry road, you shoudl stop for a while. The panorama view is simply unique.

You continue along the forestry road to the Bichlalm. Here you are spoiled with self-made delicacies such as bread, butter, bacon or cheese. For the children there is a small playground.

Above the Bichlalm, there is a cross.

Author’s recommendation

The benches at the Bichlalm invite you to relax.
