Salzburg Alpine Path: Werfenweng – Werfen, Section 25

Tour description

From Werfenweng, you first return to Wengerau on the Wengeraustraße (last section of stage 24), where you reach the Gamsblickalm, which is not serviced, after about 800 meters via supply road no. 32. From here the ascent of more than 500 meters to the Elmaualm begins – either via the hiking trail or the forest road. After refreshment at the weekly changing innkeepers, continue on path no. 32 over the Tanzboden in the direction of the Salzach Valley. After another 2.5 kilometers you will reach the Alpengasthof Mahdeggalm. Passing the Alm, you leave the access road and take the footpath down to the right. After crossing a brook, you head down the valley on hiking trail 32 to the Samerhof. Continue across a meadow and a footpath to Lehen and then turn towards Wengergraben. The Almenweg always follows the marked path through the Wengergraben to Pfarrwerfen. Arrived here, it goes downstream on the right bank of the Salzach to Werfen.
