Starting at the beginning of June, you won’t just find hikers and mountain bikers at the Postalm, but also over 2,000 young animals from the Lammertal Valley. Foals and calves find their food in this sprawling area during the summer months. Fresh milk from dairy cows as well as butter and various kinds of alp cheese are served by herdswomen at the alpine chalets.

The Postbus to the Postalm

The Postalm can be reached from Abtenau via the toll road. In the summer a Postbus coach runs each Tuesday and Thursday, independent of the weather, at 10:07am from the Abtenau post office to the lovely Postalm area. The return coach leaves from the Postalm car park at 4:13pm and arrives at the Abtenau post office at 4:30pm. With the Abtenau guest card, you can take the Postbus to the Postalm and back for just € 5.50 (€ 2.00 each way, plus a toll of € 1.50 per adult, € 0.75 per child).
