Day 3: 3-day Alpbachtal family tour
The third day of the 3-day family tour takes you from Alpengasthof Pinzgerhof via the Oberen Höhenweg back to Alpbach. The third and last stage has only a few metres of altitude difference and is the perfect conclusion for the 3-day family tour.
Day 3: Alpengasthof Pinzgerhof - Höhenweg - Alpbach --> approx. a. 3 - 4 hous
After a hearty breakfast at the Alpengasthof Pinzgerhof, hike through dense forest along the Silberbach trail and then along the Alpbachtaler Höhenweg towards Alpbach. This stage has only a few metres of altitude difference and is therefore perfect as a conclusion.
Before returning to Alpbach, we recommend a detour to Reith i.A.village centre. From the Pinzgerhof, follow the road downhill initially on a tarmacked road, then through the forest. After approx. half an hour you reach Reith i.A. The beautifully situated bathing lake invites you to take a refreshing plunge into the crystal-clear water. If you prefer to stay dry the the Hildegard Garden is an entirely different feel-good oasis in Reith i.A. In addition to being the source of herbalism, the garden is also a recreational haven with a barefoot path and massage trail. An attempt is made here to bring the ancient knowledge of the various medicinal plants closer again. Tip: guided tours in German are also offered here!
If your legs are already tired from the previous days, it is easier to stumble even on easy paths. Stay focused and allow yourself a few more breaks on this stage. For example, at the beautiful bathing lake in Reith i.A.
Alpengasthof Pinzgerhof - walk along the R24 path back to the forestry road - turn right and walk through the woods crossing the Silberberg stream up to the "Ramsberg" farms - after the farms bear left - hike along the R20 to the "Alpbachtaler Höhenweg" towards Alpbach - on reaching the tarmacked road walk into the valley to where the walk started.
This stage of the 3-day hike covers minimal elevation gain and is therefore ideal for the last day.
Tip: before you go back to Alpbach, take a short detour down to Reith i.A. village centre - it's worth it!
