Lovely landscape and impressive scenery: Here you can experience Alpine huts close-up – plus they are really easy to get to. Your family will love it! Children will love the animals at Kochelbergalm, lots of rivers for paddling and building dams in hot weather. And then of course, there is lots of healthy and delicious Alm produce, from buttermilk to home-made dumpling soup. Partnachalm hut is situated in an amazing location above Partnachklamm gorge. So if you feel a bit more Wanderlust, why not take a detour through the wild and romantic gorge? (Children can come along – just remember to hold the little ones' hand.)

Habe die Tour als Feierabend-Tour an einem sehr heißen Tag gemacht und bin an der Hausberg Talstation gestartet. Zu Beginn kamen mir noch massig Landwirte und Autos entgegen. Das wurde dann ab der Kochelbergalm besser. Der Ausblick an der Partnachalm ist toll! Der Abstieg über die Hornschlitten-Rennstrecke zum Skistadion hat mir nicht gut gefallen.

Leichte Tour, die auch an einem Sommernachmittag gut machbar ist. Zum einen ist der Weg meist gut beschattet, zum anderen steht die Sonne bei Ankunft an der Partnach Alm dann südwestlich, was den Ausblick nach Süden noch effektvoller macht.
