Steeg - Bad Ischl hikeable again

Dear hiking friends, good news from the Salzkammergut Soleweg. The section between the Bad Goisern district of Steeg and Bad Ischl has been hikeable again since mid-July 2021. The rest of the trail in the direction of Ebensee will be reopened in 2022. The section from Hallstatt to Steeg (Bad Goisern) will then take place in 2024 - just in time for the Capital of Culture Year.

If you still don't want to wait that long and want to hike from Hallstatt to Bad Ischl, we can recommend the following alternative:
From Hallstatt by ferry to the station, on the “Ostuferwanderweg” (east shore hiking trail) to Steeg and then on the Salzkammergut Soleweg via Bad Goisern and Lauffen to Bad Ischl. The walking time for this alternative is about 6 hours. Refreshment stops: Weißenbachwirt, Steegwirt or Seeraunzn. We wish you a pleasant hike!

Another note for hikers in Hallstatt: The ascent via the Soleweg from Hallstatt to the Salzberg remains closed and parts of the World Heritage Hiking Trail in Hallstatt are also not accessible at the moment. Thank you for your understanding. Your editorial team.
