Route: Parking Salzbach (P5) – Almenparadies Gaistal – turnoff Gaistalalm – Gaistalalm

The family-friendly tour to the Gaistalalm is perfect for a brief but wonderful biking adventure: Directly at the starting point near the Salzbach parking lot (P5) you’ll find the entrance to the expansive Almenparadies Gaistal. Follow the signposted (Gaistal-Rotmoosalm Nr. 553) wide gravel road uphill, take the turnoff to the Gaistalalm after the initial uphill section and reach your destination in through shadowy forests, across wide alpine meadows and along the turquoise-blue Leutascher Ache.
The cozy sun terrace of the Gaistalalm will then reward you with a variety of homemade delicacies from the alpine cuisine, while the kids can let off some steam at the playground close-by. After the meal, the Leutascher Ache offers a variety of opportunities for play and refreshment and short hikes through the woods and meadows can easily fill wonderful afternoons here. On the way home, an idyllic natural Kneipp facility awaits tired calves in the forest at the parking lot - eventually dirty kids may also be carefully cleaned here.

Attention pasture cattle, please keep distance and cross the pasture area calmly and quickly.
