Hiking in Bad Ischl

Explore the hikes in Bad Ischl and the surrounding area.


The path from the Rettenbachalm to the Blaa-Alm has been closed since October 2020 until further notice. A hike from Bad Ischl to Altaussee is therefore currently not possible. The extensive hiking possibilities on the Rettenbachalm and on the Blaa-Alm are, however, available as usual.

The brine pipeline path between Steeg and Hallstatt is closed until further notice. In addition to rockfalls, woodwork and mudslides, ash dieback is also a reason for this closure, which has now lasted longer. The Bad Ischl-Steeg section has been open again since July 2021.

10 Rules

for a safe holiday around cattle

  • Avoid contact with grazing animals. Do not feed the animals, maintain a safe distance at all times!
  • Try not to be loud. Do not startle cattle!
  • Mother cows protect their calves. Avoid cows with calves especially if you have a dog with you!
  • Always keep dogs under control and on a short leash. If it becomes clear that a cow is going to attack: Let your dog off the lead immediately!
  • Do not stray from the path!
  • If cattle block your path give them the widest berth you can!
  • If a cow approaches you: Stay calm, don't turn your back on the animal and give it a wide berth!
  • At the first sign of the animals seeming unsettled, remain calm and leave the area quickly!
  • Respect fences! If there is a gate, please use it and close it afterwards, then cross the meadow swiftly!
  • Treat the people who work here, the countryside and the animals with respect!
