Long-Distance Hiking Tours


Extending some 1200 km, the Arnoweg circumnavigates all of SalzburgerLand. It follows in the footsteps of a rich cultural tradition, also taking hikers to some extraordinary natural wonders.
The longest possible variant requires hikers to take on the challenges of 80,000 vertical meters, while around one half of the tour is above 2,000 meters in elevation.
The Arnoweg traverses all of the province's major climate and vegetation zones, from fields of grain to the rocks and glaciers of the Hohe Tauern mountains. This is the equivalent of a journey from Salzburg to the Arctic.
The many highlights include the famous pilgrimage churches of Maria Plain, Maria Kirchental, Maria Alm and St. Leonhard bei Tamsweg, as well as Krimml Waterfalls and the Zittelhaus on the Sonnblick, at 3,106 meters above sea level, the highest point of the Arnoweg.

St. James' Way

Stage: Eugendorf - Hallwang - Maria Plain - Salzburg
13 km / ca. 3 hours

This stage leads hikers of the St. James' Way into Salzburg City.
From Eugendorf mainly on country paths and side roads through Hallwang in the direction of Salzburg. Our route takes us up the Plainberg, on top of which stands Maria Plain Pilgrimage Basilica, very much the high point of this stage. It invites you to pause and reflect. The walk up and back is via the Stations of the Cross pathway, which was created in 2005.
We now continue to the River Salzach, whose banks we follow upriver into Salzburg City. Soon we are treated to beautiful views of the baroque silhouette of this UNESCO World Heritage city.
Tip: If you are in the mood for a healthy bite to eat, make your way to the Grünmarkt market located on Universitätsplatz, or to the Schrannenmarkt, a market held every Thursday on Mirabellplatz square.

Please note:
This entire stage of the St. James' Way can also be enjoyed by bicycle!
