Relaxation and enjoyment are, so to speak, included in the hiking tours in Mittersill. The best example of this is the approx. 6 km long circular Sonnenrundweg, which gives you a particularly beautiful, unforgettable view of the city. From the hotel you go into the city to the Volksbank, from where you take hiking trail 71A towards Unterwimm. After a seamless transition to hiking trail 63, turn left towards Rettenbach. On clear, sunny days, the panoramic view of Mittersill and the Hohe Tauern is particularly beautiful. You get back to the hotel via Achleiten.

The Felbertaler high mountain lakes

The various hiking trails in Mittersill also bring some challenges with them. The circular hiking trail to the high mountain lakes of the Felbertal is suitable for experienced hikers. Let the free hiking shuttle take you to the Hintersee car park and take a walk to the lake. Via the Trudental you can take hiking trail 917 to the Naßfeld, cross the Tauernbach and after 2.5-3 hours you will reach the Plattachsee. If you still have enough energy in your tank, you can extend the tour towards Tauernsee.

The viewing path now becomes a little steeper and leads to the topmost waterfall level. At the various viewing platforms you can enjoy the panoramic view of the roaring water.

About the Mittersill hiking area

The location of Mittersill and our Hotel Bräurup is a real stroke of luck, especially for hikers, walkers and mountain enthusiasts. Numerous three-thousand-meter peaks frame the region in a charming way and form the backdrop for exciting excursions on two legs. Rugged mountain shapes alternate with lush green, cultivated alpine pastures. Around 200 huts and inns provide you with hearty snacks and vitality during the hiking season. Many roads lead to real places of amazement that are equipped with a “throne” – a slightly different seat that offers incredibly beautiful views of the nature of the region. That will certainly make hikers’ hearts beat faster.
