Hiking in Upper Austria

Unique natural scenery accompanies hikers at every turn. Because hiking in Upper Austria takes you at walking pace past fragrant forests, across the lush green of flowering meadows, up to peaks with great views. Breathe in. Breathe out. And feel your own strength again. Sometimes a crystal-clear lake beckons you to cool down after the metres of altitude you've gained. Or a hearty Brettljause.

Long-distance hiking trails and pilgrimage routes in Upper Austria

Strong moments can be collected on pilgrimage or hiking, for example on the Johannesweg, alpine hiking or on the first long-distance hiking trail in the Salzkammergut, the BergeSeen Trail. All these places have one thing in common: Breathe in. Breathe out. And feel your own strength again. These are refuelling stations with a vision.


Huts and alpine pastures in Upper Austria: The oases of the mountains

For some they are the destination of a hike, for others a welcome refreshment stop on the way: the cosy alpine pastures and huts in Upper Austria's mountains. The hut keepers await hungry hikers with delicious alpine delicacies and some also with cosy beds.


Climbing in Upper Austria


Climbing exerts a very special fascination. Especially in Upper Austria, where the landscape is made for climbing. Grippy, rugged rock and multi-faceted mountain landscapes allow the most varied degrees of difficulty for climbers. Here you can conquer the mountain under your own power and become one with the rock and with nature. Once you have reached the top, you are rewarded with fantastic views over mountains and lakes.
