De zijdalen van Gerlos

In alle zijdalen vindt u gevarieerde routes, van gemakkelijke wandelingen tot aan inspannende bergtochten is er voor iedereen iets bij. Bij de wandelingen wordt u steeds door kristalheldere, zachtjes kabbelende beekjes begeleid, die u op warme zomerdagen op een verfrissing uitnodigen.

Schwarzachtal 1- hour easy hike for the whole family into the romantic Schwarzachtal
From the Kühle Rast inn hiking trail no. 8 leads you to the romantic Schwarzachtal. After a narrow forest area, you will hike along a slight incline past the rippling Schwarzach and you can enjoy the impressive landscape. Keep your eyes open – you might even discover one or two marmots! After 5 kilometres, a much-deserved reward in the form of a hearty meal break or a heavenly apple strudel awaits in the rustic snack station at Schwarzachalm. Up to this point, the hiking trail is also very suitable for families with prams or buggies. After reinforcements, sure-footed hikers can continue on the hiking trail to Upper Schwarzachalm.
Tip: experienced mountain climbers can also ascend the Schwarzachscharte.

Zittauer Hütte (2.329 m) 5 - 6 hours nice walk to Zittauer Hütte. The Zittauer Hütte is located directly on the lake "Wildgerlos" and is for fit hikers an ideal starting point for various hut tours (Richter Hütte, Krimmler Tauernhaus, etc.)
From the car park of the Gasthof Finkau at the end of the Durlaßboden lake, the path leads down a shady forest path no. 540 past the natural monument, Leitenkammerklamm, up to the rustic Trisslalm. The path continues straight on through open terrain, along the stream, through the wonderfully romantic Wildgerlos valley. In the westerly valley of the Hohe Tauern National Park, large rock formations, which can be climbed by young and old, provide lots of variety on the approx. 2 hour hike through to the large waterfall at the end of the valley. A head for heights is an absolute necessity for the steep ascent on path no. 540 to Zittauer Hütte. Crossing over stone steps and secured with a rope on the rock face, you can climb up past the moraine to the waterfall and then finally onto the Zittauer Hütte. The lodge, which has been awarded the environmental standard, was built in 1900. A magnificent landscape awaits you at the top with the Wildgerlossee and the choppy glacier landscape of the Wildgerloskees. Then it’s back to the Gasthof Finkau along the same path. It is also possible to just hike through the wonderful Wildgerlos valley and turn around at the turnoff to Zittauer Hütte.
