From Mauterndorf up the Grosseck
The hiking trail from the town centre in Mauterndorf starts right next to Hotel Binggl. The path, which is know as the "Trog Path", starts from here. You will soon find out what makes this family hiking trail into a themed path, namely 51 stations that accompany you all the way up to the path's finish. The path climbs through idyllic forests, past the wild stream until you finally reach the slope that you ski on in the winter. The last section leads up to the top station of the 8-man gondola which you can take back down to the valley again in comfort.
Foxes, stag beetles, copper beeches and Edelweiss
"NaturPur" is supposed to communicate what was specifically paid attention to when setting up the themed trail in Salzburg's Lungau. You can find a theme to do with Lungau's nature at every station.
For example, you can find the fox or stag beetle on the respective boards. Naturally, the world of plants also belongs to nature. Trees such as the copper beech and plants like Edelweiß are also part of this. The tour is rounded off with information about the historical town of Mauterndorf. You can find interesting facts about our castle, the hammer mill and Samson.
The glacier mills as witnesses of the Ice Age
One of the highlights on the NaturPur themed trail is certainly the glacier mills situated in Mauterndorf. The hiking trail in Salzburg leads to these breathtaking formations that have "ground" themselves deep into the Ice Age's glacier. Today you can still find smooth-walled hollows that are up to four metres deep and are definitely worth a visit.
