Evening activities amid nature in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Evening is the best time for outdoor activities – and here are a few tips. I’ll show you the best spots. Yet, before we begin, you should make note of the following:

  • Always take a torch with you in the evening to ensure a safe descent in the dark
  • Take longer clothing with you for when it gets cooler
  • Don’t forget a drinking bottle filled with water


1 Hike to the Wagrainer Alm – Arzkendl

A hike to the Wagrainer Alm is a short march plus a tasty snack – what more could you want? We shorten the route by driving up to the car park at the Bergweg (2.5km out of the resort towards Flachau, turn left along the Bergweg before the Sampl Stove Maker). From here it’s just a 30 minute walk and leads at first along a tarmac road and then along a forest road. Along the last few metres you can see the alpine pasture and maybe you’ll meet a few animal inhabitants, also enjoying the evening atmosphere. We treat ourselves to a snack, which tastes even better in the twilight and with a view over Wagrain.

Walking time: 1 hour

Starting time: by 6.30 pm at the latest

2. Hike to the Sonntagskogel or the Griessenkareck – a quick peak experience for a perfect end to the day

Do you fancy a hike with peak feeling of achievement? – Then this is just for you. Here you can either travel up to the mountain station of the Flying Mozart Cable Car or the Grafenbergbahn Cable Car and hike on to the next peak. When you reach the top you can savour the sunset with a view of the surrounding mountains.

From the Flying Mozart mountain station at 1,865 m you head on to the Griessenkareck, the peak of which at 1,991 can be reached in just 40 minutes. We follow path number 41 and take an obligatory peak photo.

From the Grafenbergbahn head up to 1,700 m to the peak of the Sonntagskogel. From the mountain station of the Grafenbergbahn Cable Car descend to the Hachaualm and follow the Alpine Club Path No. 713 to the peak at 1,849 m. The return path is the same or leads as a circular trail past the Grossunterbergalm.

HERE you’ll find a detailed tour description

Walking time: 30 to 40 minutes from the mountain station to the peak and 1.5 hrs. back down to the resort as the cable cars are already closed.

Starting time: 4.30 pm at the latest, as that’s the latest possible cable car journey on the Flying Mozart Cable Car (not operating in the year 2020) and the Grafenberg Cable Car.

3 Jägersee

One of my favourite activities is a visit to the Jägersee Lake. Also a lovely place to visit in the evening, mainly as there are less people around the lake at this time. The Jägersee Lake lies at the end of the valley in Kleinarl and can be reached by car, bus, bike or on foot. With a bit of luck you’ll see the swans which live there and always make a great photo motive. The walk around the lake is perfect for rounding off your day.

Walking time: 45 minutes for the circular tour

Starting time: anytime

The new Soccerpark in Wagrain-Kleinarl offers a sporting evening activity.

Fun is guaranteed and makes a perfect end to a summer’s day.

Time required: Soccer golf takes approx. 1.5 hrs.

I live in St. Johann im Pongau and enjoy yoga, my stand-up paddle board, books and cats. In summer and winter I’m out and about in the mountains, hiking, skiing or snowboarding. I take every opportunity to try out new sports and equipment.
