Alpine huts around Wagrain
Rest at a hut
Now, what would a hike through the wonderful hiking area around the Hotel Edelweiss be, without a hearty rest in one of the rustic alpine huts? There you can find out a lot about the natural and sometimes very tough life on the mountain. You meet your hosts, they take time to sit down and have a chat– shift gears into a different, slower speed.
Take some time for the pure
It is vital part or the hiking experience to regain energy by enjoying regional specialties, most of which were produced right there in the alpine huts. Bacon, cheese, butter and freshly baked bread. Milk from happy mountain cows. You can really taste that nature is still in balance up here.
A hearty yodel as farewell and then we are headed back home to The Edelweiss.
Our hiking guide will show you the most beautiful places – you have only really been where you have been by foot.
Experience the beauty of nature, the silence, the mighty mountains, the gentle alpine meadows – you are never touched as intensely as when you are walking.
