From Russbach you can reach wonderful alpine pastures in a relatively short time. The circular route takes you first to the Traunwandalm, then via the Angerkaralm to the Rinnbergalm. On the way you will learn all sorts of interesting things about life on the alpine pasture. The management of the pastures was once a hard and deprived work. We should imagine them less romantic and relaxing than today may seem to arouse the appearance. In addition to the supervision of the cattle, the cultivation of butter-malt, scotch and cheese was the focus of the farms.Fortunately, cheese production on the pastures has recently undergone a renaissance in the course of tourism and all hikers are well advised to try it.

Author’s recommendation

The alpine huts are open from the end of June to September and the dairy farmers serve excellent, homemade cheese specialties.

Destination

Village Square

Turn-by-turn directions

Beautiful, scenic hike, a central section through forest is a hard hike and demands surefootedness, but is not dangerous. Past the village hall and head left (north) on Rinnbachstrasse to the Rinnbach bridge . After ca. 150 m, turn right onto the paved Fallenegg supply lane and, before a bridge, make a left, taking you uphill through a short stretch of forest. After crossing a small stream, the path leads on a moderate climb through a series of zigzags across hillside pastures until you reach the Traunwandalm (1330 m, no facilities). Now to the left of the mountain huts, cross the hillside until you reach a sparse forest of spruce. Follow the narrow path along the mountainside, and after about 45 mins. you will come to a forestry road below the Angerkaralm (1416 m). Option here to hike down path 32a back to Russbach (ca. 1 hrs.). A gently downhill forestry road brings you in around ½ hour to the Rinnbergalm (1249 m). Here, follow path No. 32 down to the valley (ca. 1 hr.).
