Buggy-Friendly Walk: Gleirschalm

The Gleirschalm hut in the Sellraintal Valley is the perfect place for a day out with young children and toddlers.

From the village of St. Sigmund the wide trail leads up to the Gleirschalm hut in around 40 minutes. The path is not steep and has plenty of shady spots to stop and rest. The Gleirschalm hut itself offers delicious food and a large terrace with lots of sunshine, though on hot days there are parasoles set up to provide shade. Proof of how popular this place is with families can be seen by the large number of buggies parked in front of the hut and the many mothers feeding their babies on the terrace.

Trail description

The walk starts at the large pay-and-display car park in the village of St. Sigmund. From there, follow the well-signposted trail past a forest play area and over a small bridge. It is here that in winter the walking path branches off from the toboggan run. In summer you take the road on the right (the toboggan run in winter) and walk up through the forest. A little skill is required to negotiate the narrow gate at the barrier. Here it is a good idea to take the baby out of the buggy and carry it through. From there it is just 15 minutes to the hut. Return along the same route back to the starting point.
