Hiking to the Iglmoosalm in Gosau

A very popular amongst hike

The Iglmoosalm is very popular amongst hikers. You can reach it either the easy way by means of the "Gosau slow train" or by taking a one-and-half-hour walk from Gosau Mittertal. You can join the trail at various points. Allow 3 to 7 hours (return trip). Refreshments available from the Badstubnhütte (mountain hut) by the gritstone quarries.

Route I:

Follow the forest track which you join between Gamsjäger's guest house and the Gosauschmied inn. After approx. 30 mins we bear off into the woodland. From here we follow a well-indicated Theme Trail which brings us to the Historic Gritstone Quarries(allow about an hour and a half). From the quarries it is about half an hour further to the "Löckernmoos" mountain moorland from where you can walk on a wooden platform to the romantic Löckernsee mountain lake. Enjoy the wonderful panorama with the Gosaukamm mountain range in the background. Continue via the Grubalm to the "Wildfrauenloch". This is said to be a "lucky spot", and you can lean back and take a well earned rest on an unusual "seat" made from old fir trees.

Route II:

An additional uphill walk for experienced hikers begins at Lake Gosau. Walk via the Ebenalm and the Rabensteig Forestry Road to the Grubalm, and then finally you will arrive at the gritstone quarries (3 hours). Enjoy stunning views towards the summit of the Dachstein and the Salzburg Chalk Alps.Routes III and IV: You can also walk back to either Gosau Mittertal or Gosau Vordertal. Tip: Take a break to explore the gritstone quarries from where valuable gritstone has been mined and worked since the sixteenth century.
