This leisurely winter hike takes you along a section of the historic brine pipeline trail. The trail consists of gentle ups and downs and offers wonderful views of the Ramsau valley, which is about 400 m lower.
We set out across the sunny terrace of the mountaineering village of Ramsau on the tracks of the former brine pipeline. The 200-year-old "pipeline" was built to transport salty water to the Berchtesgaden salt mines. The salt, which we know today as brine, was also called white gold and ensured the prosperity of the Berchtesgaden region for centuries. At the information stand along the path, we take a look at the original wooden pipes, also called "dikes", and learn details about the history of the brine pipeline.
