The meadows on the way to the Blaa Alm are worth a hike especially during the daffodil blossom in May. The quietly located inn on the Blaa Alm enjoys great popularity as a destination for excursions all year round, the alpine ambience with the huts and peacefully grazing cattle contributes significantly to this. The Blaa Alm is also attractive in winter - well-maintained cross-country ski trails and a winter hiking trail off the trails are the highlights.

Destination

is the starting point

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting at the park in Altaussee follow the signpostings in direction to the Blaa Alm. After about 100 meters along the street to the Blaa Alm you have to turn left and cross a bridge slightly upwards. Passing beautiful houses built in the rural, traditional style of the region you will walk upwards until you reach the hill. From then on the path leads via meadows and parts in the forest all the way to the Loser Skiarena, where in winter time is a great skiing resort. Especially in May this area is littered with daffodils. With a beautiful view to the Loser we carry on the last part of this tour first through a small piece of woodlands and then meadows finally reaching the area of the moutain pasture Blaa Alm. Finally you will see already the restaurant and soon reach your aim.

Author’s map recommendations

Hiking maps are available at the information offices in Ausseerland. 

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
