Our hiking tip - Flachau's local mountain, Griessenkareck
Hiking up Griessenkareck in Flachau

Our Appartements Bergheimat lie right at the foot of the Griessenkars, at 898 meters above sea level, thus offering the perfect starting point for this unique hike. 

You can take the lifts Starjet 1 and 2 or hike over the Pfeiffei Alm to the Latschenhof Inn at an altitude of 1725 meters.

From here you hike over original pastures to the foot of the summit. After some rocky terrain you finally reach the summit of Griessenkareck at a height of 1991 meters.

You can descend back to the valley via the Hundsdorf hut.
