Klosterhof

Our hikes

An excursion into the work of art that is the Alps.

From short, lively afternoon walks to the most powerful mountain experiences, the possibilities are almost unlimited.

Artwork Alps

Guests will experience nature’s work of art on a daily basis thanks to the location of the hotel and its surroundings:

Surrounded by lush meadows and impressive forests, the grand panoramic view of the Predigtstuhl - Bavarian Gmain’s local mountain – the sleeping witch and the Lattengebirge with the impressive Untersberg mountain massif.

On the other side you can enjoy the view of Hochstaufen and the Loferer Steinberge, covered with snow until summer.

The sleeping witch and crossing the Lattengebirge

Crossing Lattengebirge - 4 peaks from Hallthurm to Predigtstuhl

From the Hallthurm parking lot (travel time about 5 minutes from Klosterhof) a short way on the panorama path. After about 15 min. turn right, up to the Rotofensattel. Follow the signs towards Hochschlegel - Predigtstuhl - Dreisesselberg - Karkopf up to Steinerne Agnes. Follow the hiking trail to the ruins of Steinbergalm. Keep right and go up the ascent to the hollow between Dreisesselberg and Karkopf. Turn right after about 15 minutes to the peak of Dreisesselberg. Return to the hollow where the ascent begins. Continue straight here along an easy ridge path to the Karkopf. Go back, keeping left until the summit of the Hochschlegel. Descent past the summit to Schlegelmulde-Alm, continuing to the peak of Predigtstuhl (AV-Weg 469/404A).

From there to the Predigtstuhl mountain station, from where you take the cable car into the valley. From the valley station walk five minutes to the stop for buses back to Hallthurm.

Duration approx. 6 hours, distance: 9.75 km, elevation: ascent 1,150 m, descent 300 m

Hochstaufen - Bad Reichenhall’s highest mountain

Start at the Padingeralm parking lot (travel time about 10 minutes from Klosterhof). Follow the passing road and continue uphill until it ends and changes into a trail. A long stretch of woods is followed by a treeless, rocky passage. Just after a long left bend we reach a lookout bench, inviting us to rest, with a great panorama to the left of the road.

Now the path leads above the tree line through stony, largely barren sections. At Bartlmahd it becomes a little greener for a short time, then we climb up towards the west side of Hochstaufen. The path across its back is not technically difficult to walk, but it has some quite exposed passages.

These require a certain degree of surefootedness and a head for heights. Around the back we are rewarded for the effort of the ascent with further beautiful views. The path then leads less exposed to Reichenhaller Haus, the highest mountain hut of the Chiemgau Alps, and is open during the summer months. Directly beside it, the Staufenkapelle was cut into the rock. Now it is only a few meters to the summit.

For the descent, choose the same path as in the ascent.

Duration: 5-6 hours, distance: 10 km, altitude: 1,330 m

From Großgmain to the Untersberg

Start at the Bruchhäusl (the name refers to an old stone quarry) in Großgmain (about 5 minutes’ drive from the Klosterhof) at the foot of the Untersberg. Here a marked trail leads to the ruins of Vierkaser Alm in about 2 hours.

The path is not used by hikers, you rarely meet people - so you can really enjoy nature in peace. From there, head across the Ochsenkopf to Mitterberg and continue to the Stöhrhaus on the Untersberg.

The view from here spans far across Salzburgerland.

Duration: approx. 5 - 7 hours, 8 km, altitude: 1,500 m ascent, 314 m descent
