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.

Then, you hike to the Schuhflicker, which is one of three limestone mountains in Grossarltal.

On the Arlspitze, which is the front peak, there are numerous climbing routes.

From the Schuhflicker you have a very nice view of the Schuhflickersee (=a mountain lake).

Downwards, the hike leads to the Aualm, where you can taste self-made delicacies. This mountain hut has been newly built in the last years, but it has remained a real mountain hut.

Author’s recommendation

Direkt unterhalb des Schuhflickers in nördlicher Richtung liegt der kleine, dunkelgrün schimmernde Schuhflickersee. Von der Scharte unterhalb des Gipfels sieht man bereits den Weg dorthin. Ein Abstieg zu diesem See (ca. 20 min.) lohnt sich auf alle Fälle.
