Lugingersee and Raggingersee

Small oasis in a protected landscape

Dotted along the picturesque ridgeline between the Hochgitzen and Haunsberg are several small lakes including the Lugingersee and Raggingersee. This protected landscape is a popular excursion destination, especially since many bike paths in the Alpine Foothills head to these lakes.

Haunsberg Scenic Pathway

A path with beautiful views

The Haunsberg invites you to go on a leisurely panoramic hike, featuring info boards and fun interactive stations for kids. Along this easy loop (time-on-trail: ca. 3 hrs.), you can enjoy views of the Salzburg Lake District, the Salzburg basin including the city of Salzburg, the northern Limestone Alps, and the foothills of the Bavarian Alps.

Refreshment opportunity: Gasthof Kaiserbuche

The Antheringer Au

Pristine nature reserve with boar and other wildlife.

A hike through the Antheringer Au is a special nature experience in any season. Awaiting children and parents in this pristine nature reserve is a fascinating natural landscape and an exciting animal world: ponds created by beavers, rare bird species such as the kingfisher or gray woodpecker, roe and fallow deer, and the indigenous wild boar which, depending on the season, may pass through accompanied by their piglets. 

At the end of the path, you will reach the mighty Salzach, along whose banks you can continue your hike.
