WHERE CAN YOU DO THAT? On the Riesneralm, of course. More precisely, up to the summit cross on the Riesner Krispen. Not only your toes will feel a very special sense of freedom when you reach your first summit without shoes.

During this hike over a length of 700 m you can feel the mountain with your feet and enjoy a wonderful foot reflex massage. Spruce cones, wood chips, bark mulch, mud and earth hollows, stone types from granite slabs to torrent boulders, wood in all variations or the natural alpine pasture soil - everything is integrated. The trail leads from the HochSEEsitz in flat serpentines with a total of 19 stations directly to the summit of the Riesnerkrispen at 1,922 m.

Safety information

  • Let others know where you are going.
  • Turn back in good time if the weather deteriorates. If you get caught in a thunderstorm, stay away from individual trees. Wait out the storm, if possible in a crouching position.
  • Stay on marked trails and remember to close pasture fences.In case of emergency, keep calm and call the mountain rescue on 140. If you have no reception, take out the sim card and dial 112.
  • If you encounter cows: It is best to pass above the herd with at least 50 meters distance. Stay calm, don't make any frantic movements and don't run away. Do not imitate cow sounds and do not try to pet the animals. A stick and loud shouting can often make the animals turn back in an emergency.
  • If you are a dog owner: Clarify before the hike if you have to cross a pasture. Keep your dog on a leash and make sure he stays calm. If a cow attacks, let the dog off the leash immediately. Never pick him up to defend him.
