The Alps are a region which have this mountainous massif in common, but differ in so many other ways. What means: there is so much to see, to visit, to experience. Places we love to go from Slovenia to Switzerland, sights we love to visit, we will share it with you in this category.
Wolfschwang: Deer Feeding, Salzburg
In the mood for a walk with the whole family? At the foot of Untersberg, Salzburg? There, where stags and roes kiss themselves good night and where there is no mobile phone reception, and not only electric smog, but noise is missing as well.
Winter Wonderland in Großgmain, Untersberg close to Salzburg
Then, we would highly recommend a walk to Wolfschwang.
You either start by car: drive from Salzburg to direction Großgmain and after the open-air museum Großgmain take the next bend to the left to Grödig, up the hill and then right to the parking at Latschenwirt: 47 ° 44'9 .52 "N, 12 ° 56'53 .85 "O
Who does not want to take the car and is very athletic, can take the bike to Latschenwirt, a mountain bike at best.
Those using public transport can use a longer, but also wonderful walk – starting from Wartberg. To Wartberg use the local bus 180. Bus 180 starts in Salzburg at Mirabellplatz (mirabell square), but also stops at the main railway station, or Airport. The ride from the city takes only about 20 minutes.
Snow Landscape in March
The walk starting Latschenwirt lasts depending on your walking speed between 30 min to 1 hr, light gradients and straight paths alternate. In winter, it is wonderful to walk between snow covered trees, through some snow balls and watch the landscape.
In summer you can do some Kneipp Hydrotherapy stations or have a look at the forest quiz and read information about plants, trees, rocks and animals.
You can use pushchairs and buggies on the path, as long as the tires large and well-filled with air (the cross-country version).
The motivation for the walk is usually high with children - at the end of the trail there is not only a great view of the mountains, but also a deer park. The deer are fed there, and you can see them very close. And the plus for brave children: there is a vending machine for animal food and one can feed the stags and hinds. It is an incredible experience to see the animals from such a close-up.
Stags and Hinds in the Deer Park
Deer enclosure: 47 ° 43'7 .51 "N, 12 ° 55'42 .66" O
The way back is usually quite quick and after so much fresh air your appetite might be quite well.
There are two restaurants on the way the one in Wolfschwang and Latschenwirt itself. Latschenwirt ist currently closed and only open for events. Wolfschwang reopend in March 09 and is the higlight for the grown-ups on this way, be i for some coffee and cake other a traditional Brettljause (opened daily, except monday closed).
There are three restaurants in the vicinity: one is in direction of the city: the quaint inn Wartberg, or in direction of Großgmain, there ist the district Hinterreit: Steinerwirt or a little hidden and further down the way the inn Häfei in Großgmain.
