The Ponyhofalm is a beautiful place, which is run by the family's old generation with passion - and it is located in the middle of the "Hohe Tauern". The hike is fairly easy going and a nice trip for the whole family. At the altitude of about 1.400 meters visitors can find a great pasture with amazing views into the mountains of the "Hohe Tauern".
The path up to the Ponyhofalm
The hike starts directly at the Hotel Lampenhäusl and first you will have to take the 2 km walking path in northern direction to the Judendorf district - or the Hinterjudendorf farmhouse - also known as Ponyhof. From there it is the gravel road up the hill, which will take you to the Ponyhofalm.
Depending on stamina and hiking speed, the Ponyhofalm can be reached within about 2 h on a beautiful plateau in a romantic pasture area. Due to the high altitude of more than 1.400 meters, you can enjoy a sensational view to the mountains of the Hohe Tauern.
