Cycle path
To the Imperial Beech

Length: 6 km
Altitude metres: 255 m

Obertrum am See is the starting point of the tour to the Kaiserbuche - the landmark with a magnificent view.

Obertrum centre: The steeply ascending route runs on a cycle path along the main road to the Kaiserbuche junction. From there it is only a few hundred metres to the spot where Emperor Joseph II is said to have stayed in 1779 to look out over the Innviertel region newly acquired by the Habsburgs. In memory of this event, a copper beech, called the Emperor's Beech, was planted at this spot. More than a hundred years later, on the 50th anniversary of the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I, a chapel was added to the imperial beech.

To this day, this "imperial" place fascinates with its unique view over large parts of the Flachgau, the city of Salzburg and all the way to the Tennengebirge.

For those who need an even better view, we recommend the following Haunsberg Hiking Trailwhich leads past the Kaiserbuche Inn and the VEGA Haus der Natur observatory. On the easy-to-walk circular trail, which climbs gently at the beginning, windows of view open onto Salzburg's Seenland, the Salzkammergut and the Northern Limestone Alps with Untersberg, Watzmann and Hohen Staufen.
