STELLPLATZ TO UNTERBERG- 13Km about 20 mins – ONLY IF CLEAR DAY
Lift is 23Euros pp. It is possible to hike up and down though- Up 14E/ down 12.50E
THERE IS A CHALLENING HIKE TO ICE
CAVES- SEE NOTES BELOW- THINK THIS IS TOO CHALLENGING THOUGH
There are hikes available at the top station of the cable car.
OPTION ON THE WAY- HIKE THE ALMBACHKLAMM- 6Km, about 10 mins
Difficulty: Easy to steep, duration 1 - 3 hrs, depending on option. Accessible only in summer. Difference in elevation about 200m (650 ft).
Starting point: Marble mill (Kugelmühle), located just off the road between Berchtesgaden and Salzburg, Kugelmühle parking lot can be reached by car, on foot from Berchtesgaden (approximately 45 min. each way) or by local bus (10 min bus ride, the bus stop is on the main road, 5 min. walk to Kugelmühle).
Description: The Almbach Gorge is one of the prettiest in the Eastern Alps. After the parking lot, you will pass an attractive inn, next to which you can view the marble mill (worth a look- makes round balls out of stone). A few steps beyond the marble mill, you will have to pay a small entrance fee (discount if you have a visitor's card Kurkarte). As you proceed, you will notice that each of the bridges and overpasses is numbered. The trail leads up through the deeply cut gorge, past thundering waterfalls and crystal-clear pools.
If you continue to bridge 19 and then turn back to the trail head, the hike will average 1 hr, 20 min. If you turn right at bridge 17 and follow the steep uphill trail to Ettenberg, the whole round-trip hike will take about 2 hrs, 20 min. The view from Ettenberg is impressive, the self-service inn at the top and the pilgrimage church of Ettenberg are definitely worth the rather steep incline.
SHOULD ABLE TO PARK EITHER CONTINUE ONTO UNTERSGERGBAHN OR GO BACK AND HEAD ACROSS TO GOLLING-
To Untersbergbahn- 7.5 Km, ¼ hour
To go to GOLLING can either continue to Untersbergbahn anyway then head back down, or cut across via Hallein.
Maps will go via motorway but we don’t have to.
Would need a Vignette if we choose motorway.
UNTERBERG- ICE CAVE IN MOUNTAIN
The Schellenberger ice cave is located at1570 meters. Ideally, the visitors hikeup early in the seasion, after opening the ice cave. You can reach the entrance from starting in the valley or make a long hike from the mountain station of the cable car. As earlier you visit the cave in the spring as more ice is in theSchellenberger ice cave. The cave tours takes about 45minutes (depending on the season). Before it goes down the visitors get carbide lamps. Please, you must bedressed warmly. Temperatures in the cave are partly below zero.So don´t forget the warm clothings even in the summer!!
More detail information about tours and timetabele please check the village homepage or the Toni Lenz lodge homepage.
Between the village Marktschellenberg and the border toAustria, on the B 305, you will find a small, free car park for the Schellenberger ice cave. Here, close to the historical "boarder tower",the
challenging climb begins on a good path. Throught shady forests you will reach the treeline in about 1,5h to 2 hours. Above you will have a magnificent view of the Untersberg and theToniLenz Hut (1.450m). From this point it´s a other good hour. From there it's only 20 minutes to Schellenberger ice cave.
The way across the Untersberg plateu with help from the cable car:
The ice cave is in about 2 hours hiking from the Untersberg moutain top station reachable. The path leads through the high alpine karst plateau, then you will pass the Thomas Eder path (one of the most unique and most interesting of its kind), for approximately 200m deeper located, you can find the entrance to the "Schellenberger ice cave".
More hiking tours / return way:
From the cave entrance to the Thomas Eder path which opens up in bold lines(by 4 tunnels) the vertical rock edge to Mittagsscharte. Above the Mittagsscharteyou can choose to the right in direction Salzburg Hochtron (1853m) or to themountain station of the cable car back, or left to Störhaus (3 hours).
