Countless hiking trails line the Hohe Tauern National Park, each more beautiful and fascinating than the next. Fantastic views and many a challenge lead through magnificent natural scenery and allow you to discover this protected zone, which also serves as a habitat for countless animal and plant species, from various sides. Speaking of habitat: there are also many, often invisible, inhabitants in the water. The magnificent Bach educational trail in the Hollersbachtal is dedicated to them.

All about the creek
The waters of the Hollersbach valley and the surrounding area of Mittersill magically attract animals and plants. They act as a home, as a nesting ground and as a source of food, keeping the ecosystem in balance. This approx. three and a half hour hike is dedicated to them, which stretches over 11.6 km and 334 meters in altitude of medium difficulty through the valley with the car park as the start and end point. There are twelve display boards along the path, which deal with birds, insects, fish and plants, present the special features of the ravine forest and provide information about the magnificent alder population. The goal is the Senningerbräualm at 1,132 m. A small stop is always possible.

Bach educational trail in Hollersbach with extensions
At the serviced alpine pasture, you turn around and go back to the Hollersbachtal car park via the Bachlehrweg. If you still want more hiking fun and are in good physical condition, you will find one or the other expansion option. The detour at the end of the valley in the direction of the Neue Fürtherhütte is particularly popular. However, this is an alpine tour that requires appropriate mountain experience. Alternatively, the Hollidee leisure center is headed for. There is a magnificent natural bathing lake here, which allows you to cool down. Kids feel magically drawn to the eco-pond and the adventure playground.
