Hohe Salve

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 Sunnuhrenweg (Sundial path) enthral with information about the history of time measurement and the sun's position at various times of the day and year.

As the wind also plays a big role on the mountain, the sound of the wind harp on the Hohe Salve is an invitation to all hikers to have a rest and listen to it. Also to be found on the summit is the Salven chapel which was first mentioned in 1589, a visit to Austria's highest pilgrimage church fits in beautifully with a hike in the Wilder Kaiser region.
