Winter hike to the Bürglalm in Dienten am Hochkönig

No sooner has a delicate, white winter dress draped over the summit of emotions than the three Hochkönig communities transform into designated winter hiking paradises. Several cleared, well-groomed winter hiking trails lead through the snow-covered nature, connect the mountain villages with each other and now and then dare to venture into lofty heights. If you have no problem with long climbs, you should definitely hike the Bürglalm in Dienten. Fantastic views and small delicacies are well worth the effort.

Via the Bürglalm in Dienten

The Bürglalm or “Bürgl”, as it is often called, is located in the heart of the alpine pastures of the Hochkönig massif at 1,597 m above sea level. From here there is a wonderful all-round view of the Dientner Grasberge, the Leoganger Steinberge, the Steinerne Meer and the Hohe Tauern. The managed Alm is open in summer and winter and is one of the most popular gourmet huts in the Salzburg region. Hearty delicacies and sweet temptations from regional cuisine strengthen tired hikers and make stopping off a must on this challenging winter hike on the Hochkönig.

Mountainous winter hiking in Dienten am Hochkönig

Speaking of hikes: the starting point is Haus Dienten in Dienten am Hochkönig. Now it goes uphill almost constantly in about two hours with a total distance of 5.2 km and 546 meters of altitude. The forest path to the Lengthalalm, a prepared winter hiking trail, leads mainly through wooded area until a junction on the left points to the Bürglalm. Now the somewhat steeper part of this route begins, which first leads to the reservoir and finally makes the Alm the destination below the Wastlhöhe valley station. If you want to save yourself the return trip, take the Bürglalmbahn back to Dienten.

These and many other winter hikes inspire Sonnhof guests again and again. You enjoy full living comfort in a pleasant location and many other active tips throughout the year. All that’s missing now is your no-obligation holiday inquiry !
