Tour information

From the car park at Gasthof Wegscheid, first follow the forest road. After about 200m, follow the signposted trail (Neue Bamberger Hütte) to the right into the forest. Follow this "winter trail", passing the idyllically situated Kuhwildalm, until you reach the Neue Bamberger Hütte after about 1.5 to 2 hours. 

Be sure to plan a stop at the Bamberger Hütte. The hut also offers a great place to spend the night.

After refreshments, we continue south past the Rosswildalm hut, over several short ascents and wide alpine pastures to the already visible Markkirchl on the Salzachjoch, the border between Tyrol and Salzburg.

The way back is via the same path, past the Bamberger Hütte again and along the winter path back to the starting point, Gasthof Wegscheid.
