Hiking and discovering

Whether on the herb nature trail or along the educational "electricity trail", go exploring and enjoy the breathtaking landscape bordering the Upper Tauern National Park.

Herb nature trail

The herb nature trail leads from the Mooserboden reservoir to the rustic Fürthermoaralm farm and inn. Along the path you can discover the unique flower and plant life of the Upper Tauern mountains. The trail repeatedly affords breathtaking views of the high mountain landscape with the Glockner Group, the reservoirs and the "Steinernes Meer" (an "ocean of stone").

At 45 minutes of hiking time and an altitude difference of 237 metres, the herb nature trail is ideally suited for families as well. However, sturdy shoes with good tread will be necessary.

Your hike begins at the Mooserboden mountain restaurant and is well-marked along the whole route. From the Fürthermoaralm farm and inn you have the option of returning to the valley or to the Mooserboden by bus. Of course the hike is also possible in the opposite direction.

Hiking with children - and learning

Our children's nature trail invites you and your children to a trip around the Mooserboden reservoir. At six interactive stations, young and old guests can have fun learning more about nature and technology. The children's hiking path at the reservoir is the first hiking trail in this region especially for children. With its length (approx. 1 km, approx. 30 minutes incl. stations) and trail conditions it is suitable even for the littlest children and is easily navigable with a stroller.

At the cash desk, children receive a little booklet with a map and a guide for experiencing the children's path. Six questions are asked about nature and technology. With the answer card and the hopefully correctly marked answers, the children receive a small surprise at the kiosk near the Electricity Adventure World.

Safe hiking

The hiking area counts as a high Alpine region. For this reason it is essential that you observe the following points:

  • Use sturdy shoes.
  • Always take some food along on your hikes, and especially enough to drink.
  • Do not leave the marked hiking paths.
  • Observe the weather: in the high mountains, the weather can change very quickly.
