Samerberg high valley region
The high plateau on the
a Chiemgau hiking paradise
The municipality extends south of the motorway, southeast of the Chiemsee on a high plateau over a length of 7 km at an altitude between 600 and 750 m. A landscape like in a picture book, that is the Samerberg in summer. Lush green meadows and fields, wooded mountain slopes with shade and swimming pools in Törwang, Grainbach and Rossholzen. Families in particular enjoy the diversity of the landscape in summer. People like to take a chairlift and gondola lift up to the Hochries, probably the most beautiful panoramic and hiking mountain in the Rosenheimer Land.
There are easy and contemplative tours on the
Samerberg. But there are also many tours on forest roads and forest paths for
the athlete, for the trained or for all those who want to combine the pleasant
and sporty with the enjoyment of the landscape. The managed alpine pastures, but
also the farms in the high valley, then load
to the exertion for a pleasant retreat.
Here are some nice hiking suggestions!
Various hikes from the Lederstube car park
(in 83112 Frasdorf) at the foot of the Samerberg. An easier family hike via the
Frasdorfer Hütte (currently closed) and on to the Hofalm at 1000 m in approx. 1
hour walking time. The forest road is also suitable for small children (with
prams), mountain bikers and hikers with limited mobility. However, there are
some steeper climbs. It is surrounded by beautiful alpine pastures with a
wonderful view of the rocks of the Kampenwand. The kitchen offers good snacks

Soft drinks are offered on the penultimate hut. Those who make the effort will be rewarded with a wonderful view of Frasdorf, Aschau, the Chiemgau and the Chiemsee. Or further over the Riesenhütte (closed) and the Riesenberg to the Hochriesgipfel.

The Hochriesbahn, the mountain railway in Rosenheimer Land in Grainbach
From the parking lot ofthe Hochriesbahn, a chairlift first takes you to the middle station (on foot it would be about 30 minutes on foot). From the middle station there are easy hikes to the Käsalm or to the Moseralm in Moserboden. Or continue with the Hochriesbahn to the summit. From here there is of course a beautiful hiking trail to the Hochries summit, to the Hochrieshaus. The Hochries offers everything you could wish for: peace and relaxation, clean air and a panoramic view of overwhelming beauty of the central Alps, the Chiemgauer and Berchtesgaden mountains, to the Großglockner and Großvenediger. In the north the view extends over the Rosenheimer Land, the Inn, Simsee and the Chiemsee with the islands. Restaurants in the valley, in the middle and on top of the mountain make it possible that hardly any wishes of hiking and nature lovers remain unfulfilled.

Grainbach (Hochriesbahn valley station) and also for other hikes is available
