Turn-by-turn directions

The well-prepared winter hiking trail starts from car park P3 in the direction of Wiesleralmen. You stroll leisurely towards the alpine huts and enjoy the landscape.

After about 20 minutes you pass the first hut: the Wiesler hut. Continue on to the "Wolfgangseeblick", where you have a wonderful view of Lake Wolfgang and the Salzkammergut. Continue along the panoramic winter hiking trail of the Postalm in the direction of the Huber hut, which you reach after about 40 minutes. Head south here to the starting point. 

The winter hiking trail is really easy to master and ideal for families or winter hikers with dogs!
