Travel Tips for Sankt Johann in Tirol
Walk down from Harschbichl to Mittelstat
Get the cable car to the top (Harschbichl). There you will find, apart from the marvellous views, a café and fab children's play area complete with old Reliant Robin for them to trash! If you have young children you can take your buggy up as the paths are very good, although you will have to take path 2 rather than 1 as 1 is stoney in places as it serves as a short cut. Walk down from the top as far as the lake at the Mittelstat and get the cable back down from there - took us just over an hour at a slow pace and we stopped at the lake for lunch.
A stop for refreshments.
The return journey was broken by a visit to a cafe/restaurant called Hirschberg, to the west side of the road heading downhill.
The approach was to a fram house, the barns at first , then the living area,then a cafe with an outside eating are shaded by umbrellas.
I sat outside in the shade and was attended to quickly. After I ordered I sat and enjoyed the view of the valley looking towards Going and further to Ellmau. To the right stood the massive Wilder Kaiser mountain range that seemed to reach as far as Kufstein in the Inn valley on the border with Germany.
I simply soaked in the magnificent view. Then I ate and drank and took some more photos.
I spent a few days in the Austrian Alps and I was very impressed. St . Johan is dead in the middle of them and a great place to get off the bus for your first alpine experience. My only regret was that for most of my European travels I had a different camera that wasnt digital so I had to scan some of them for VT. I will go back someday but in the meantime I do have my memories. St. Johann is a great place to visit and there is really great trekking and outdoor activities.
