Hikers' Mountain Griessenkar

Griessenkar mountain, located in the vacation destination Flachau, is the ideal starting point for a wide variety of summer hikes of all skill levels. Only 70 kilometers from the city of Salzburg and easy to reach via the Tauern Autobahn highway (A 10), Flachau is one of the most popular family excursion destinations in the Salzburg region. The Griessenkar can be comfortably reached with the two chairlifts Starjet 1 and Starjet 2. Families are drawn to the Floris-Erlebnispfad adventure path, a circular family trail which is suitable for strollers and that starts at the top station of Starjet 1. Refreshments after strenuous and eventful days are offered in rustic alpine huts and mountain inns that invite you to stop in as you explore along the child-friendly hiking trails.
