St. Rupert's Pilgrimage Way

Pilgrimage – the somewhat different form of hiking incorporating spiritual experiences…

The St. Rupert Pilgrimage Way leads from St. Gilgen on the shores of the Wolfgangsee directly to Bischofshofen. The clearly marked path extends for some 110 km, connecting the Salzkammergut, Flachgau, Tennengau and Pongau regions. Our pilgrimage leads us past areas of natural beauty, fascinating attractions and magnificent lookout points. You should plan on taking 5-6 days for the entire pilgrimage.

Cross of St. Rupert:
As the crowning conclusion, we suggest stopping in at the Museum am Kastenturm to see the famous Cross of St. Rupert (700-800 A.D.).
