Loferer and Leoganger Steinberge

These two Austrian mountain ranges are bordered by the much more frequented Kitzbühel Alps in the southwest, the Berchtesgaden Alps in the east and the Chiemgau Alps in the north.

They are connected to one another by the 1,202 m high Römersattel and are therefore uniformly referred to as “Stone Mountains“. An ideal area for easy hikes, both on peaks and through gorges and caves, and for enjoyable mountain biking, too.
