Hiking in the Glemm valley

A mountain summit for everyone!

Only where you have reached by foot, have you really arrived. Therefore, we would especially recommend that you explore the surroundings of Viehhofen, as well as the Glemm valley in hiking boots. Enjoy the panoramic mountain views as well as the many smaller details of the landscape. The Pinzgauer grass mountains reach an altitude of nearly 2.000 m, attracting both easy-going hikers and ambitious summit stormers. When you eventually reach the summit, the landscape is luscious, with green rolling meadows. With a little effort, nearly every summit can be reached. On the way up to the summit, there are plenty of places to take a break, whether it be by a small, hidden mountain lake, or a stopover in one of the numerous Alpine huts.

Why archery?

Archery is a fascinating sport which balances both body and spirit. Once out in the fresh air and the woodlands, the stresses of everyday life are soon forgotten. The tranquillity and natural surroundings enable you to focus on the targets and experience inner peace.

equipment & timing

As the archery course is in the forest and there are numerous narrow hiking trails, sturdy footwear such as hiking boots are recommended. Good footwear also ensures a safe stand. The path is well signposted and easy to find, but please allow plenty of time! For all 28 stations, a group of four would need approx. 3-4 hours.

A pleasant surprise: At the halfway station, you will find an area with cool drinks and snacks.
