Plenty of wide open meadows and a few ski pistes are the terrain which await walkers embarking on the Four Huts Hike from Hochfügen. This easy route is suitable for all the family and does not require particularly good fitness levels. There are several restaurants and cafés in Hochfügen, but the four huts which give this hike its name are all closed to the general public.

Trail description

This hike begins at the car park next to the ski lifts in Hochfügen. The first section leads along a gravel path (trail number 23) running parallel to the ski slope up to the Lamarkalm hut. There, stay on trail number 23 and follow it to the second hut, the Pfundsalm. Hikers will cross a stream and, after a short section in the forest, also cross the Pfaffenbühel ski piste. From the Pfundsalm hut at 1,640 metres, head into the valley along the banks of the Finsingbach river. The trail then crosses over the stream and heads to the Viertelalm (1,730 metres). From there, head north along trail number 23, which is almost entirely flat on this section, to the fourth and final hut: the Holzalm. From there, a gravel trail leads back down to Hochfügen. Places there serving food and drink include the Aarwirt, which you will pass on your descent, as well as other locations in the village. This hike can also be completed in the opposite direction.
