Panoramaweg Schlossalmblick – Route description

A must for those who love stunning scenic views: On the 2.2-kilometre hiking trail, you’ll walk through Schlossalm’s picturesque snowy landscape for approximately 1.5 hours, ultimately arriving at the Schlossalmblick viewing platform. Starting from the mountain station of the Schlossalmbahn cable car, your winter hike will lead you past Kleine Scharte mountain restaurant and the identically named mountain saddle at 2,052 metres above sea level. Please note: The Panoramaweg trail intersects the ski slopes on Schlossalm in a few spots – and in these areas, skiers hold the right of way. We kindly request pedestrians to exercise caution. Towards the end of the tour, you’ll also come upon Hofgasteiner Haus, a welcoming hut where you can warm up and refuel.
