“Everything Alpine”

New family hike

The new family circular trail “Everything Alpine” (“Alles Alm” in German) offers fun hiking adventures for the whole family. The picturesque pushchair-friendly trails take you through wide meadows and fenced play areas. It’s almost as if time is standing still.

“Everything Alpine” offers insights into the difficult but happy life of the people who lived on the Gnadenalm in days gone by. At eight thematic stations, visitors learn about true stories, curiosities and interesting facts about life on the alpine pasture, everything from nature facts to information about the numerous animals. 

The start and end point is the observation tower at the big pine, where visitors can jump right in and enjoy. Here is also where the amusing “Alpine Quiz” (“Almquiz” in German) begins.


While moving between the individual sections of the hike, visitors will be able to get to grips with different topics related to the alpine pastures in an entertaining way, and can then enjoy the magnificent views and relax in cozy themed resting places. Children are free to frolic – they can try balancing on the giant rake and scythe, they can visit the marble family in the marble construction, and can show off their jumping skills in the cow spot obstacle course, plus much more.

In the Almseilgarten, you will plunge into the thick of the forest with ropes, wooden obstacles and balancing elements set at dizzying heights. The facility is located directly along the trail between Felseralm and Johanneswasserfall (Johannes Waterfall). The walk from the Grünwaldkopfbahn takes about 30 minutes, and from the Gnadenalm, about 50 minutes. You can also park at the Almseilgarten.
