The stages

The 23 classic stages are the basic structure of the BergeSeen Trail. With the alpine (17 stages) and the regional (9 stages) stages it's possible to lengthen the trail or make it more alpine. The alpine stages are only for people which are sure footed, free from giddiness, in good condition and have alpine experience.

On the way on the "BergeSeen Trail" with Jakob Fessler

Since 2017 the "Berge-Seen-Trail" connects the numerous hiking trails in the Salzkammergut to a 350 kilometer long long distance hiking trail. 20 daily stages lead through the Salzkammergut mountains and through the Tote Gebirge, past the numerous large and small lakes of the Salzkammergut. This long-distance hiking trail was realized as a joint project of the tourism associations of the region and the Salzkammergut Tourismus Marketing GmbH, with the Austrian Alpine Association and the Naturfreunde Salzkammergut. 

Jakob Fessler set out last fall and completed two sections of this Salzkammergut - Trail: He hiked together with former forester Gisbert Rabeder from Lake Hallstatt to the spa town of Bad Aussee and then with hiking guide and storyteller Sabina Haslinger from Almsee to Gmunden. He also explored Lake Traunsee with the historic paddle steamer Gisela and its captain, and had Manuel Suchanek explain the history and functioning of the famous laths during a trip on Lake Altaussee.

We hope you enjoy listening to it!
