Puch Parish Church

In the garden of the old Maurerbauer stands a beautiful forsythia which, in springtime, frames a photo of Puch parish church wonderfully. Behind the church, you will discover a marvelous view of the Untersberg. Sit down for a while on the bench next to the side entrance, enjoying the silence outside the parsonage garden.

Barmstein View

Setting out from the village car park, choose either the "Dorf-Runde" or "Salzachuferweg" and walk along the "Schwester-Hildegard-Weg" in the direction of the senior citizens’ home. Behind it is a big playground where, next to the blossoming trees in front of the play hill, you will be able to snap unique photos of the Barmstein peaks framed by flowers.

Puch Recreation Area

Before continuing along the marked hiking path, you should definitely schedule a break at the recreation area. A number of benches invite you to pause and enjoy. Here, too, unique pictures of the Barmstein are possible. Truly special: the footbridge over the water with blossoming flowers and grasses and shrubs that seem to grow ever greener.

Spring in Puch Urstein

Continue hiking to the River Salzach and follow signs along the “Tauernradweg” as far as Puch Urstein. The Ursteinsteg bridge provides countless opportunities for that perfect spring photo. From the bike/hiking path, shoot your photo of the Ursteinsteg through the blossoms, against the backdrop of the mighty Untersberg.

When you step onto the Ursteinsteg, you will be treated to unique views of Hallein, the Salzburg mountains as well as Schloss Urstein perched upon the rocks.

Puch Panorama

From the Ursteinsteg, you can continue hiking or biking past the hydropower station all the way into Salzburg City. At the Ursteinbrücke, however, a path also leads you back to Puch, past the Urstein campus of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and the Urstein train station. This will bring you to the northern entrance into Puch, presenting a unique panoramic view of Salzburg’s mountain world. Always in focus here is Puch parish church, which you may also wish to hike back to.

When you pass the parish church, you might want to take a close look at the Roman milestone. Awaiting you in the Late Gothic church is the over 400-year-old Puch Palm Donkey. Learn more about it under "Culture & History".
