This easy walk is excellent for an after-work stroll or an easy morning jog. You can recharge your inner “batteries” on the jetty in the recreation area and on the path through the forests of Puch. Along the way, dogs can run off-leash at the dog park, before returning to the parking area.

The route is ideal if you are pushing a pram, also taking you past a big playground. If you prefer to avoid the light traffic which runs through the village, simply turn around at the dog park and make your way back from there.

Author’s recommendation

  • There are a number of benches where you can stop for a rest. For the playground and recreation area, a swimming towel and picnic blanket are handy for a short break in nature.
  • Several refreshment options locally: www.puch-salzburg.com
  • Within the Puch village limits, dogs must be on a leash.

Turn-by-turn directions

The path leads from the municipal office through after the railway subway, left via "Schwester Hildegard Weg" to the senior citizens' residence. At the children's playground and the skate park, turn right towards the Salzach (no. 16). In between, a path on the left leads to the recreational area. Two small ponds and a footbridge invite you to linger here in the meadow or on the rest areas.

 

From here, follow the path for approx. 200 m and at the crossroads turn left onto the gravel path that runs parallel to the recreation centre and the Pucher Waldstadion for approx. 800 m. At this crossroads you will also find the stamp for the Tennengau Hiking Pass (2 points). Turn left again at the next junction and follow the path for approx. 250 m until you reach Schulstraße. On the left-hand side, next to the cane run, is a dog run where dogs can run and play freely (dogs must be kept on leads in the rest of the municipality).

 

From there, turn right to the Mühlbachsiedlung and turn left before the railway subway. Follow the path to the next subway and then turn left underneath it via Grubenbauerweg back to the starting point. The ideal "after-work round" - also for dogs!

By car from Vienna on the A1 autobahn or from Munich on the A9, shortly before reaching the Tennengau (Hallein) you will come to a big interchange where you will merge onto the A10 (Tauern Autobahn), continuing south. Puch/Urstein (Exit 11) is the northernmost autobahn exit in Tennengau. If you are driving in from the south on the A10 from Villach/Kärnten, also leave the Tauern Autobahn in Puch Urstein, taking Exit 11. From this exit. drive either south into Puch itself or north following signs for Salzburg City as far as St. Jakob am Thurn.
