Salvenbergrunde am Kreuzweg

Start at the tourist office in Westendorf, past the Gemeindeamt building towards Feichten (crossing the main road). Passing the old farmhouses, head across the fields until you reach the fork in to the path for the Außersalvenberg/Hohe Salve. Keep to the right following the signs for the "Hohe Salve". Good shoes are needed on the steeper sections of this route. Make a slight detour to take a look at one of the oldest family farms in the Tyrol, the Rieserhof. Go back to the fork and follow the path uphill to the road. Cross the road, and continue across to the highest point of this hike, at the Thumer- and Ledererhof. Enjoy the views of Westendorf and the Windau Valley. Walk downhill along the road where you will come to the Alpenschule and a number of lovely farmhouses, eventually turning to the left at the Eichtlhof. This road takes you past the Eggerhof and on to a steep path leading to Moosen. Continue into the valley where the Bahnhofstraße will take you back to Westendorf. Alternatively by continuing uphill and keeping left at the first fork you will come to the area of "Straßhäusl". Once in the valley, cross the railway and the main road. A short uphill path will bring you back to the village centre.
