Several young people from Ischl were arrested for producing leaflets. Alois Straubinger managed to escape from a cell at the district court in Wels in August 1942 and had to remain in hiding for 1.5 years. Numerous mountain pastures, including the Kriemoos Alm, served as a hiding place for him for weeks to escape persecution by the GESTAPO. A hiking guide and a historian will accompany you and tell you about the life of Alois Straubinger. This easy to moderately difficult hike takes you from Goisern to the Kriemoos Alm and the Hütteneck Alm. 

Approx. 16 km, ascent and descent 560 m, walking time without breaks approx. 4.5 hours. Sufficient conditions, sturdy footwear and suitable clothing are required. Meeting point: Bad Goisern centre car park near the Stephaneum. This hike only takes place in good weather. Bad weather dates: 26.07.2024 and 28.07.2024. 

Landscapes like the Salzkammergut are not only living and natural spaces, they have a political history. In addition to active support for National Socialism, the tradition of resistance against the “authorities” was particularly expressed in the case of Hitler’s fascism. Areas of the alpine pastures and high mountains inaccessible to outsiders served as retreats and hiding places for those persecuted for political and religious reasons. Familiarity with the barrenness of the surroundings, with the harsh climatic conditions, but also the cohesion of the inhabitants in local collectives enabled the persecuted to survive. The objective of the walks in the Salzkammergut landscape is to anchor the memory of the women and men in the resistance in the collective memory.
