Anyone who knows us knows that we don't like hikes that go uphill. The hikes shouldn't be strenuous. Instead, we are looking for hiking trails that anyone can do. The hikes should promise enjoyment. Offer beautiful prospects. They should be interesting. For us, hiking on holiday in Austria means hiking with enjoyment in landscapes that we like. These can be hikes along rivers or lakes. We like hiking through the moor. We also like walks to mountain meadows when the spring blooms. Or herbal hikes, during which we learn something about the flora of the mountains.

The Alpine republic offers an incredible variety of hiking trails that lead you through breathtaking landscapes. Here you will find crystal-clear mountain lakes, lush green alpine meadows and majestic peaks that will cast a spell over you.

Hiking in Austria means not only physical exercise, but also relaxation for the soul. The fresh mountain air and the untouched nature make you forget the stress of everyday life and recharge your batteries.

If you are looking for a more leisurely tour, you should hike through the Vienna Woods. The Wienerwald is a densely forested hilly area south-west of Vienna that is ideal for day trips.
