Let’s hike up Schmittenhöhe!

Wanna go hiking?

Even Empress Sisi loved to hike here.

In mid-May, the mountain railways open for the summer season. The perfect opportunity to get into hiking mood!

Some of our guests are hikers. And some hikers like to start their adventure with a little help from the mountain lift – and why not? If you’re staying at Lederer, our hotel in Austria, I highly recommend a visit to Schmittenhöhe. It’s the perfect excursion destination for my two- and four-legged friends, for those with short and with long legs.

If you walk along the altitude promenade, you'll happen upon ...

  • panels with interesting information on the many animals and plants that live and grow here on the mountain,
  • 30 majestic three-thousand-metre peaks,
  • stunning views of the most beautiful Pinzgau mountain peaks,
  • telescopes that tell you the name of the mountain you're looking at when you look through them.

Super cool, as my human parents would say.

Let’s head to the valley station of the Schmittenbahn lift, reach new heights, and take a leisurely spring stroll through the colourful landscapes. By the way: Schmittenhöhebahn will start summer operations on 13 May 2023.
