Family hiking in HOCH-IMST

The Hoch-Imst area is a particularly rewarding excursion destination when it comes to family-friendly hikes with children of all ages. After the mountain experience, the Alpine Coaster and the Family Park provide for even more action, and the bathing lake for cooling-off.

Pilzpfad (Mushroom path)

Over hill and dale, through woods and meadows and even along a small brook, you can discover all kinds of things on this tour. First and foremost, the huge mushrooms that have been skilfully carved out of tree trunks. Information boards reveal more about these silent forest dwellers. Watch out when the coasters whiz past you!

  • Difficulty easy
  • Starting point Hoch-Imst car park (bus stop)
  • Duration 1.5 hours
  • Length 4.2 kilometres
  • Highlights a detour to the reservoir lake or a jump into the cool water of the bathing lake


Jägersteig PATH

This easy and entertaining but extremely varied hike takes about half an hour from the mid-station next to the Untermarkter Alm. The route’s natural highlight is the wild-romantic Jägersteig path with wooden stairs, a giant rock boulder and a half-open rock dome. Finally, at the Latschenhütte young and old explorers can enjoy the legendary sweet Hüttenschmarrn (shredded pancakes with raisins and sugar). Return along the same route.

  • Difficulty easy
  • Starting point mid-station (uphill ride by lift)
  • Duration approx. 40 minutes each way 
  • Info The Jägersteig path is not pram-accessible.
  • Highlight the 3.5km-long ride with the world's longest alpine roller coaster back into the valley.

Traditional, quaint, and simply cosy. In a relaxed atmosphere, landlady Waltraud takes care of the physical well-being of her young and older guests, with a lot of heart and passion. “Hüttenschmarrn” (shredded pancakes with raisins and sugar) and dumplings taste twice as good on the sun terrace!
