9 Incentive Highlights in Upper Austria

Are you looking for a suitable day or half-day excursion for your team? From a nature experience in the Pyhrn-Priel region to culture in the Salzkammergut or action in the Danube region - we have collected the top company excursions for you.

Wilderness Camps in Pyhrn-Priel

Leisurely hikes, learn new skills and the digital world is completely off the air for a change: join us on a hunt for lynx in the National Park and discover ancient beech forests in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. Listen to the inhabitants of the forest and learn about edible herbs and wild vegetables.

The National Park Wilderness Camp is located on a sunny clearing in the middle of the forest sea of the Kalkalpen National Park at 940 metres above sea level. This comfortable oasis in the wilderness is the ideal base for wilderness camp programmes with National Park Rangers and wilderness educators. All wilderness programmes can also be booked individually as a group.

Culture in the Imperial City

Why not take a trip to Bad Ischl with the team? First a trip to the Katrin, the local mountain of Ischl, then a detour to the Zauner confectionery for a famous Zaunerstollen. And in the evening off to the Lehár Festival.

The Lehár Festival is the largest operetta festival in Austria and unique worldwide in its diversity and quality. Every summer, musical entertainment theatre of the highest standard is presented to an international audience. In addition to the three main plays "Madame Pompadour", "Der Vogelhändler" and "Schön ist die Welt", the Lehár Festival presents world premieres and cabaret programmes as well as concerts, matinees and lectures every year.

In lofty heights

For action fans who don't suffer from vertigo, the high ropes course is a perfect adventure! Balancing over the elements between the trees requires skill and concentration. Outdoor fans can choose between three courses with Flyingfox and a low course at Breitenstein.

As a team excursion, the day starts with a small breakfast on request before heading up into the heights. Afterwards, the guide leads you through various group-dynamic exercises that primarily strengthen trust, cohesion and team spirit.

Afterwards, for example, a wicking dinner at the Maurerwirt in Kirchschlag or a whiskey tasting at Peter Affenzeller's can be organised.
