Anyone spending their hiking holiday in the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee region can look forward to the mountain scenery around Arnoldgut Farm which offers a route to suit everyone. Here you will find two very contrasting hiking worlds very near to each other: the tranquil town of Altenmarkt which is situated at an altitude of 842 metres and the Zauchensee mountain village at 1,450 metres – what’s more, both are certified hiking villages!
Whether an idyllic hike to an alpine hut, interesting themed paths such as the “Moon path” or the “Farmer’s folklore path”, hiking after ascending with the mountain lifts, the "Salzburger Almenweg" long distance path or a challenging peak tour – the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee 195 km hiking network offers something for everyone and many of the paths start right on the doorstep of Arnoldgut Farm!
The themed circular trail "Mond.Weg" offers interesting and amazing information on the topics of "Science & the Moon" and "Myth of the Moon" at more than 20 interactive stations around Zauchensee and invites you to participate and try things out.

On the Altenmarkt "Bauernregel.Weg" you can hike through the knowledge of our ancestors and learn exciting facts about weather rules and lost days.
At more than 30 stations, the themed circular trail "Bauernregeln.Weg" holds fascinating facts about weather rules that everyone knows, but about whose origins we often know little or nothing. Reserve half a day of your family vacation for the hiking trail - here you are guaranteed to become "farmer smart".
At the "Alpine Animal Champions Cup" your children - and maybe you too - can compete with the super athletes of the Alpine animals. An experience for young and old!
The free adventure playground is located right next to the Gamskogelhütte at 1,900 meters. The nine exciting adventure stations for children are dedicated to the theme "Master Cup Arena": In this arena, the alpine animals meet to play, train and play sports. The alpine animals are all super athletes in their discipline and they are waiting for teammates to compete with you. In the process, your child will learn interesting facts about the magnificent achievements of the free-living mountain animals! Children and adults are guaranteed to be amazed!
How fast a bee can fly, how a spider weaves its web or how far a rabbit can jump - that's what you have to find out at nine adventure stations. Whether your children are as skilful as the four- and eight-legged mountain dwellers will quickly become apparent when climbing in the spider's web or balancing on a tree trunk. The cable car takes you from Zauchensee to the World Cup and adventure mountain and to the adventure playground "Master Cup of Alpine Animals" in just a few minutes.
The center trail leads through the lovely village of Altenmarkt. From the tourist office Altenmarkt-Zauchensee past the Altenmarkt church and across the market square to the local history museum, to the Enns and back to the starting point. Take about an hour for the approximately 3 km long, flat hike, you will not regret it. An ideal "small" round to get to know Altenmarkt.
A hike on the great Tal.Weg opens up beautiful views of the surrounding mountains! The approximately 11 km long round leads you through the valley around Altenmarkt, partly along the Enns, over hills and viewpoints close to the village. To enjoy the trail and the views, we recommend that you plan around 2.5 hours. The trail is suitable for the whole family.
