The Way of Saint James in Salzburg - Self guided walking tour in Austria. You'll walk on Salzburg's Saint James Trail, from boundary mark to boundary mark through the foothills of the Alps, through the Rupert's Winkl and past high mountains into the Alps. The former clerical state of Salzburg always gave pilgrims a warm welcome. The route passes interesting ecclesiastical sites, charming countryside villages and picturesque trails. The routes are fairly easy but long. Hikers should have average to above average levels of fitness.

Tour details:
The 'pre-alps' region around Salzburg is a lovely landscape of gentle hills, little farmhouses and very small villages, and lakes. Beyond Salzburg you are among the German mountains, following a river trail and walking over little passes. On the Jacob's Way the daily walks are sometimes quite long (6 hours walking) but there are almost no significant ascents and some days are short enough to enable you to visit places of particular interest. Some experience of self-guided walking is useful but there are plenty of possibilities to take the bus or train to shorten the walks.
