Tour information

The tour starts at the summit of Hohe Salve. From there the forestry trail leads us in lovely turns to Alpengasthof Rigi which comes into sight already shortly below the summit. The wide gravel path winds its way past Gasthof Rigi to Kälberalm and further on to a junction. From there we follow the sign “Hochsöll-Hexenwasser” and via a wide forest trail we get to KRAFTalm.
A short stop by the small chapel and the cross is surely worthwhile. The view down to the village of Itter and of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking. After a short halt we continue via the asphalt road downhill to Rinneralm. From there our destination is almost within our grasp. Via a forest trail and past alpine pastures, we wander downhill. As soon as we get to the area of Hexenwasser we are offered a  wide range of possibilities: the barefoot trail, the water path, the witches’ forest, a refreshment stop at the quaint mountain inn  Stöcklalm, ……
The gondola will take us comfortably back to Hohe Salve.. Or, if we want to master the ascent on foot we can walk back via Keatalm and the Salvensee or simply take the same way back we came.
