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

A visit to the Museum "Fossilienkabinett" at the parish hall is very rewarding.

Destination

Village Square Russbach

Turn-by-turn directions

From the village square follow the trail description for the “Panorama Tour” via the Franzlalm to the Hornbahn mountain station, and on to the Edtalm. There, at the Edtalmhütte, take the path up across alpine pastures. At the top, you will be treated to glorious views of the Dachstein Massif and Gosausee. The trail now leads downhill, and left onto the Herrenweg (path No. 611), where your hike leads primarily through high forest. Follow signs for the “Panorama Rundweg” until you reach Pass Gschütt road, then left towards Pass Gschütt for ca. 300 m until you reach the stop for the post bus. There, either take the post bus (consult timetable), or make your way briefly on foot along the Pass Gschütt road, then left on the Alte Pass Gschütt road back to the village square.
