A hike with fabulous prospects Lackenbauer – Bärstein – Kitzstein – Pyrkerhöhe.

Start off from the Alpenpension Lackenbauer in the Angertal. Follow the signs on the forest road towards Kitzstein/Bärstein. There’s a bit of a climb, but the magnificent view of Bad Hofgastein beneath you more than makes up for it. What’s more, you soon come to the Bärsteinalm mountain restaurant where you can refuel for the rest of the hike. From there it goes on to the Schlossalm cable car’s middle station and the Kitzsteinalm restaurant behind it. A footpath starts there and you take this towards Pyrkerhöhe and the Bad Hofgastein base station.
