Whether you want to go for a relaxing walk in Traunkirchen or you plan a demanding mountain hike on top of  mount Traunstein or mount Feuerkogel - we are glad to advise you where to find the most impressive panoramas.

In order to get a first impression of Traunkirchen and its idyllic surroundings we recommend to go for a short walk on one of the numerous circular hiking trails

Explore the village on the way from the train station via the Hofgraben and Buchberg to Mitterdorf or when visiting the alp Hochsteinalm. Both trips take less than one hour. 

A hike to the panoramic platforms of Baalstein and Geiswand is a little more demanding. Start in the center of Traunkirchen and head towards the Calvary chapel. Then the trail runs through the forest. When you have reached the platforms enjoy the unique view of Traunkirchen and the idyllic surroundings and the peaceful atmosphere far away from large crowds of people. This tour takes almost two hours and there is an elevation gain of 442 meter. 


Experienced hikers can expand this tour and can visit the alp Hochsteinalm on the way back via a dirt road. Return back to Traunkirchen via Mühlbachberg and the Zellerlweg trail. After about 5 to 6 hours and an elevation gain of 615 meters you deserve an excellent dinner at one of our restaurants.
