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
