Gosau Village Trail in Gosau
This trail is not difficult.
The Village Trail is the same as the Fairy Tale Trail at the start. Where you reach the turn for the Gosaubach Bridge, keep right. Pass the Vitalhotel Gosau and continue towards Mittertal, keeping to the right of the stream. Pass the Gosauerhof Inn. In Mittertal you cross the stream and return to the Sports Centre with the road on your right. Cross the main road. There now follows a rapid descent along the Lake Gosau road. When you reach the Hotel Sommerhof, cross the main road and the stream.
We now follow the trail along the right hand side of the Gosau in Austria stream until we reach the former Gasthof Gamsjäger. Continue a little way until we reach a fork in the trail. Bear left here, cross the bridge and then cross the main road. The route continues along the other side of the road and alternates between gentle uphill and downhill sections towards Hintertal. We return via the main road, remaining at first on the right hand bank of the river. Just before we reach the Hornspitz ski lifts, we cross to the other side of the river. Continue past the large car park for the ski lift and a few houses. At the end of a long, straight section the trail crosses, for the last time, to the other side of the stream. Keep straight on for the Sports Centre.
