Tour information

Start the tour from the parking lot of the inn  Gh. Wegscheid in the valley Kurzer Grund in Kelchsau. From there walk for a few metres along the forest road  until you get to the well-marked path no.718 leading you moderately uphill through the forest in the direction of Neue Bamberger Hütte .
While the lower part of the path runs through the wood, you can choose between mountain and forest paths in the upper half before following a forest road for the last few kilometres to the mountain hut. The Neue Bamberger Hütte within your reach, the Markkirchl circular walk leads you away to the left from the previous route shortly before Kuhwildalm.
Now follow the signed path no 732 and 734 uphill through amazing mountain scenery. You can choose between a moderately steep forest path or a well-marked mountain path. This way or the other, especially in the spring, the splendour of the alpine roses on that slope will be breathtaking. After a walk of approx. 45 minutes from the fork before the Neue Bamberger Hütte, you now reach Streitfeldalm. From there you enjoy an unparalleled view of the peaks opposite and the high valley below which stretches from the mountain hut to the Salzburg border in the south. Right at the border there is the next stop of our round tour- the chapel Markkirchl. In order to get there, follow path no 719 from Streitfeldalm and via a well-maintained forest road, always accompanied by fantastic views, to the mentioned Markkirchl.

From this little border chapel, you can take in the impressive panorama of the Hohe Tauern and the ice and snow-covered peaks. From Markkirchl, the path leads across lush mountain pastures back to the Neue Bamberger Hütte. And what could be more pleasant than letting the sun shine on your face while enjoying a good snack? From there, you get back on path no 718 which takes you back to your starting point.
