‘Helententalweg’ – romantic & tranquil
Kolomansberg – on historic paths
In the footsteps of St. Koloman to the oldest wooden church in Austria. At Camp MondSeeLand a forest path proceeds to Ritzen Chapel and continues from there via a steep hiking path to Schernthan-Alm. Enjoy the wonderful views into Salzburg’s mountains from there. Then follow the signposted path to Koloman church, the oldest wooden church in Austria. This area is regarded as an energy-filled place, inviting you to stay for a while. The descent proceeds to Hochsernerhof, from there you once again enjoy a wonderful view to Mondsee and Irrsee. The descent then continues through an area of natural woodland, back to the campsite.
Drachenwand – one of the loveliest tours in the Salzkammergut
One of the most impressive mountains at Mondsee is there waiting to be scaled.
Shortly after the start at Gasthof Drachenwand bear right, heading into the woodland until you come to Thekla chapel. Head across the wooden bridge and bear right. Follow the "Drachenwand" signposts until you get to the summit.
Tip: Sure-footedness and a head for heights is definitely required.
via the Eisenau to the Schafberg – dreamy views
One of the many ways to tackle the Schafberg!
At the ‘Kreuzstein’ car park, the routes heads steep uphill until you get to the Kreuzstein waterfall. Keep going through the woodland, crossing stream courses and well secured paths, until you reach Eisenauer Alm. This route is also easy to walk with children and is a unique experience. At the Eisenau, bear right, across Alpine pastures, into the forest. A steep ascent to Suissensee follows. Once you get to the top, the path proceeds right, below the summit of the Schafberg. The final section is the so-called pearly gates. Once you get to the Schafberg, a breath-taking view is your reward for the ascent!
Tip: From the Eisenau sure-footedness and a head for heights are required!
Almkogel – Panoramic views to Mondsee & Mondseeland
The hike to the Almkogel starts at the car park close to Gasthaus Drachenwand. From there, head into the woodland until you reach Thekla chapel. After crossing the Klausbach keep left and follow the steep ascent through the forest up to the summit of the Almkogel. Here you will be rewarded with a fantastic view across MondSeeLand. The hike continues via a forest road to Eibensee, a idyllically located natural paradise. The return path again crossed the forest trail back to the Almkogel and there is then a descent to Mondsee.
