Route: Salzbach parking lot (P5) in the Gaistal - Gaistalalm

The winter hike to the Gaistalalm starts directly from the paid hiking parking lot Salzbach (P3-5) in the Gaistal. Here you follow the signs along a wide hiking trail to the Gaistalalm at 1,366 meters above sea level.

The family-friendly traditional hut has a long history here and is still used as an active alpine pasture in the summer months. In the winter months the landscape in the Gaistal valley transforms into a sparkling mountain panorama, making the alpine pasture a unique experience for all senses with tasty hut food and seasonal specialties. On the sun terrace you can relax afterwards and lose yourself in the winter mountain view. If you haven't had enough of winter hiking on the way back, you can also make a detour to the Hämmermoosalm (1,417m).
