Hiking Pass Challenge: Sinnlehenalm
A wonderful after-work hike to the Sinnlehenalm in sunny late summer weather was on the program this time. As well as a piece of the best raspberry cake in the whole country of Salzburg and a fabulous mountain panorama.
A hike for everyone and especially for children
The hike to the Sinnlehenalm is easy to manage. It is not too long, not too steep and still offers a beautiful view of the mountains. Especially children are happy about the short hike, because at the end there is not only a delicious snack or a piece of homemade cake waiting at the Sinnlehenalm, but also a playground of the extra class with swings, observation tower including slide, trampoline and much more.
The hike starts in the village center of Leogang. From there you walk for about 30 minutes to the hut. The path is super well maintained and even manageable with strollers. You are always accompanied by the brilliant view of the Leoganger Steinberge.
All roads lead ...
... in this case not to Rome, but to the Sinnlehenalm. If the short 30-minute hike is not enough, there are many other ways to earn a stop at the hut. Summit strikers can hike from the Asitz over the half Saalachtaler Höhenweg Ost to the Sinnlehenalm. In doing so, simply turn left at the shelter hut at Durchenkopf (everything is signposted) and descend via the Sinnlehenalm. In addition, you can still extend the normal hike by not going back the same way, but via the Sinnlehenbauer. This version is also recommended in the hiking map. In the third version you go above the alp into the forest and from there you come to a forest road that leads either up to Huggenberg or Biberg or down via Vogelsang to Hirnreit - you will find a part of this path in the Vogelsang Gravel Runde for orientation. From there you come to the Achenweg and so back to the village of Leogang.
But now to the most important! The Sinnlehenalm has a beautiful terrace and offers you all sorts of homemade delicacies - from homemade cheeses to tasty syrups and delicious homemade pastries. Especially recommended is the raspberry cake, lovingly baked by Renate, the owner. And last but not least: Don't forget to stamp your hiking pass ;-) When the hut is open, you can find out here. Have fun hiking and enjoying!
