Herbal huts
at the Hochkönig

16 huts around the Hochkönig massif have specialised in the passion of herbs. These so-called herbal huts turn the varied and beautiful natural treasures into fragrant soaps, ointments, teas, liqueurs, salts, syrups, and oils. Every alpine hut specialises in a certain topic. In addition to Maria Alm elderflower tea, happiness liqueur, or ointment for insect bites, the landlords also produce hay milk soap, herbal salts, herbal oils, and syrups.

Herbal hikes for children

Children, it’s getting exciting! Herbal hikes at the Hochkönig in the Salzburger Land are also available for little guests. The little “natural scientists” can look forward to wooden memory stones (one for each herbal hut) with an animal motif and a little book with legends - a wonderful souvenir of the holidays in Maria Alm!
