Kals am Großglockner valley circuit route

The entry points for walking on the 19.5 km valley circuit trail in Kals have been provided with lovely information boards and hiking maps. These are located at the Knopfbrücke near Arnig, in Lesach near the bridge, at the end of the valley in the parish of Taurer, before the head of the valley in Dorfertal, in Großdorf/Tembler and in Kals/Glor. The pure walking time for the entire circuit takes some six to seven hours, but can be subdivided into individual stages, with points where you can enter and exit as you wish. 

There are rest areas at several viewing points which have rustic ‘Glocknersessel’ chairs and information boards. Numerous fountains provide crystal-clear drinking water to the entire circular valley trail in Kals, which is not difficult and has been carefully maintained. Moderate altitude differences provide a reasonable and recommended undertaking for all age groups. Car parking is available at all access points.
