8-day Self-guided Walking Tour in Salzalpensteig

Highlights of this picturesque walking tour from lake Chiemsee to lake Konigsee (Trail 2):

  • Lake Chiemsee, the ‚Bavarian Sea’
  • Famous holiday resorts Ruhpolding
  • Panoramic cable car rides
  • Walking along alp paths with great views
  • Lake Königgssee amidst the Berchtesgaden National Park

The new extensive hiking path ‚Salzalpensteig’ takes you along old former paths, on which salt was transported, commencing from the pretty banks of Lake Chiemsee,the ‚Bavarian Sea’, all the way to Lake Königssee,the ‚Bavarian Fjord’.Walk along idyllic forest and rural tracks through a quaint but also charming landscape with small villages, characteristic farm houses and cow pastures. Not only popular holiday destinations such as Bergen, known for the cable car on the panorama mountain Hochfelln, the famous biathlon village of Ruhpolding and the historic salt/saline village Bad Reichenhall await you on your hiking week, but also unique high-altitude hikes with magnificent views onto the ‚WilderKaiser’ mountain,the Chiemgauer Alps and last but not least the ‚Steinerne Meer’-mountain range with the two summits Watzmann and Hochkönig. In the course of your tour you come across plenty of huts and alps for a well-earned break and to sample some of the regional delicacies. During your hiking week through the ‚Bavarian Salt-Alps’, you will also learn many things worth knowing about the four Bavarian brine pipelines, about culture, history and traditions of the Salt Alps population.
