Alles Alm



The hiking experience for the whole family in Obertauern

If you turn off the B99 onto Gnadenalmstrasse, halfway between Obertauern and Untertauern in SalzburgerLand, there’s a whole other world just waiting to be discovered. One that seems to come from another era, devoid of noisy traffic or hustle and bustle. An idyllic, gently rising plateau at over 1,250 m above sea level, nestled in the imposing panorama of the Radstädter Tauern mountain range, welcomes visitors with peace and unspoilt nature: Natural alpine pastures full of mountain flowers and herbs, a crystal-clear stream, grazing cows and rustic, old alpine cabins.

“Alles Alm” is the name of the new circular family route created in harmony with nature and provides insights into past and present alpine life. It must have been strenuous, full-on work from first sunlight to nightfall. But certainly happy as well, or there wouldn’t have been so many songs about the beautiful summer on the pasture, would there?

The flat, pushchair-friendly circular route leads to ten themed stops, which present true events, trivia and curiosities from alpine life clearly and let you experience exciting facts about nature, the animal world and history with all the senses. Near a big, old arolla pine, an observation tower with giant slide marks both the start and end of the course. There are also two new stations that complete the circular hiking trail with information about the surrounding plants, animals and trees.

Play stations alternate with rest areas equipped with slides and swings, encounters with animals and entertaining information. For example, there is a large water playground, a cow spot memory game and a cow spot agility course, a puzzle for all the family and a viewing platform. Parents and children can discover what a marmot is at the Marmot House at station 3, while the important work of the bees is shown at station 6.

Depending on how long you spend at each individual station, you and your children will need 1.5 hours for the “Alles Alm” trail. The trail is gravelled throughout and is pushchair-friendly. Entry is free.

“Alles Alm” is an entertaining hiking experience for the whole family. It makes hiking fun!
