Leisurely hikes in the sun, through mountain pine forests, to the next summit, to the hut … the decision how far you want to go and which trail you take will be up to you. It’s your choice! Some also hike from Ebensee to the Feuerkogel summit. You should calculate about 3 hours for this tour. Further tour tips for your inspiration:

The gate to the Höllengebirge

The Höllengebirge lies between Lake Traunsee and Lake Attersee and some use the Feuerkogel as a starting point for crossing the Höllengebirge. An adventure of several hours which is only for very fit hikers but will be a great accomplishment when the destination is reached.

Hiking with children

Even families with children will get their money’s worth on the Feuerkogel. We recommend you to take a back carrier with you so that you can carry the little ones if necessary. Not all trails are suitable for buggies/prams! Good footwear, a second set of clothes, sun screen and rain gear belong to the absolute musts if you go for a tour in the mountains. More tips: Don’t let your family hike get boring! Boulders, viewing platforms and huts are very popular with children and will keep the motivation up. Little games or hiking songs will give boredom no chance. But it has little chance anyway if you concentrate on nature and its discoveries. A highlight is the karst & dolines trail with a mountain pine labyrinth which families should not miss during their hiking holidays.
