Natural idyll at the reservoir


The romantic Klauser reservoir is a popular destination throughout the year. During summer you can enjoy boat or kajak trips along grand canyons, bungee-jumping off the reservoir wall for the more adventurous and fishing at the reservoir for quieter moments. During winter the frozen lake is a popular ice curling destination.


Imperial hikes


The Austrian Empress Sissi enjoyed hiking through the romantic Brunnental valley in Steyrling. Still today the areas surrounding the mansions belonging to the families of Count Schaumburg-Lippe are a well known secret amongst hikers. During the winter months the cross country trails lead you through the romantic scenery.
