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

Parking and public transport:

P3-5 "Salzbach parking lot.

The fastest public connection to the starting point can be found directly in our route planner. You can find all connections in real time with the Mobility-App "wegfinder".

Directions:

This short and family-friendly winter hike leads either from the information booth at the entrance to the Gaistal over the Leutascher Ache and upstream to the signposting Hämmermoosalm, or from the last (with fees) hiking parking lot at the Salzbach (P3-5) directly to the hut ascent. Downhill the route can also be sledded, so bring your own sled if you like.

The ascent is relaxed and leads along a wide hiking trail to the cosy Hämmermoosalm at 1.417 meters above sea level. There, the delicious traditional cuisine serves all kinds of delicacies and seasonal specialties, while aromatic house fires warm the heart on request. Afterwards you can go tobogganing or hiking back down to the valley, alternatively you can hike even further to the Gaistalalm (1.366m) and only then back.
