Hohe Salve in Söll
The most magnificent view of the Wilder Kaiser can be enjoyed from the top of the Hohe Salve at 1,829 metres over Söll.
The panoramic setting of one of Tyrol's loveliest panoramic mountains is a mountain experience in itself. If you have already made it to the Hexenwasser, it would be a real shame to miss out on the summit, where the talking Salven giant welcomes you as you arrive at the top station. By the way, the name "Salve" means "be greeted" in Latin! A fascinating path circles around the peak, the 15 points along the Sonnenuhrenweg (Sundial path) enthral with information about the history of time measurement and the sun's position at various times of the day and year.
You start your hike at the parking area in Söll and follow the hiking way no 52/50 to the top of the Hohe Salve.
Hiking time approx 5-6 hours - medium walk
