Great circular walk under the Bischofsmütze

Hiking on the Unterhofalm

A particularly spectacular panorama awaits you at the Unterhofalm. The unique landscape under the Bischofsmütze is one of the most impressive in the Salzburg sports world.

From the holiday home Alpennest in Radstadt Altenmarkt you have arrived in Filzmoos in about 20 minutes by car. From here, take the toll road for the toll road to Direket by car to the Unterhofalm. But you can also walk or book one of the horse-drawn carriages.

The Unterhofalm is a beautiful alp, with good management and a nice playground for the kids. However, the hut is often busy during peak season, as well as coaches the region approach.

Easy circular walk in 60 minutes

In just 60 minutes you can make the short circular walk. This leads over the Unterhofalm and the Almsee to Oberhofalm. In between, you will also pass the beautiful and newly built chapel. The way is really not difficult and especially well suited for children.

Up to the Hofpürglhütte

Challenging is the circular route to Hofpürglhütt. Here you should be in great shape and wear proper footwear. The Hofpürglhütte is picturesquely situated below the Bischofsmütze. Here you have a particularly beautiful view. If you want to stay overnight at the Hofpürglalm, be sure to book in advance as the rooms are often fully booked.


There are several cabins to choose from. The food is good. Especially in the season, the Unterhofalm and Oberhoflam are heavily visited.

Perfect for children
There is a nice playground. With the very small take the circular route. As soon as the children are a bit bigger, you can also take the path to Hofpürglalm.
Nice view

There is no better view for us. The area is very recommendable


The way to Hofpürglalm is demanding. Pay attention to good footwear.
