The family friendly tour starts at the car park of the Filzstein guesthouse. On hiking trail no. 13, you will climb up to the summit of the local Krimml mountain, the Plattenkogel (2.039m). At the summit cross, a unique view of the Pinzgau and Zillertal mountain landscape awaits you with its impressive glaciers. As you continue to walk in a westerly direction on trail no. 50 you will also enjoy a magnificent view of the romantic Wildgerlos valley and the Durlaßboden lake. After ample refreshments with some homemade specialities at the Gletscherblickalm you will hike over the Plattenalm back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

On the summit of the Plattenkogel, you will find a telescope that provides you with close-up views of the surrounding mountains along with information about the height of each of the peaks.

Between Filzstein and Silberleiten, the pathway is also suitable for prams.
