“Rittisberg Round”- Halseralm and Sonnenalm

Family attractions, huts and other hiking tours to the mountain experience Rittisberg

Directly from the Hotel Matschner you hike over the Tannenweg in the direction Rittisberg. There the beautiful wide Rittisberg Round trail begins. First slightly uphill, then along picturesque meadows till Halseralm and Sonnenalm.

You walk about 45 minutes to the Halseralm, a 400-year-old farmhouse without electricity – but famous for its flambéed Kaiserschmarrn.

If you hike up a quarter of an hour, you will come to the “Sonnenalm“. On the large sun terrace you can enjoy the view into the Tauern. Your host Gerhard will entertain you, he is one of the funniest landlords in Ennstal. After the cozy stop, you first walk about 20 minutes along a forest path until you come back to a forest road. Walk slightly downhill to the “Ochsenalm” and then again along forest trails passing a fish pond to “Tannenweg”. From here it is a comfortable walk back to the hotel.

Hiking time around 4 hours. Easy walk to warm up at the beginning of the holiday.

Maps are available at the reception of Hotel Matschner
