The power of the untamed Alps

Rather hike unusual: from the most beautiful place in Austria (2018) the Schiederweiher, where the majestic Spitzmauer is reflected, over the deep beech forests of the Kalkalpen National Park, which were chosen as Austria's first natural world heritage site, to crystal-clear mountain streams and lakes with drinking water quality - you decide for which destination you today?

In the holiday region Pyhrn-Priel you can go to your personal tree line - but you don't have to. Well-marked hiking trails in all levels of difficulty lure with picturesque, managed alpine pastures and surprise with breathtaking views. Whether it's an insured trail, a multi-day tour, a leisurely hike or a walk around the lake - everyone will find the right experience of nature here.

So close to the summit

The Hutterer Höss and Wurzeralm hiking areas can be easily reached by cable car or funicular. There you are a good deal closer to the impressive peaks. Simply enjoy the magical panorama or continue hiking as far as your legs can carry you.

Expedition Freedom

In addition to the mountain railways and public transport (train, bus), the individual hiking taxi supports you in your adventures in summer. With the Pyhrn-Priel AktivCard these are free or heavily discounted.
