Among mountain hikers, Austria has been a popular destination for many years, especially because it is very easy to reach and more budget-conscious than neighboring Switzerland. The mountain huts there are the most comfortable of all Alpine countries so they are also suitable for families and hikers who want something a little more luxurious.

While hiking on the sunny side of the Alps you follow the traces of times long gone. Theme trails over a former seabed offer a glimpse into previous eras of the earth’s history. Cosy mountain hikes lead to historic cheese farms. Those on their way to the summits will be rewarded with an impressive panorama.
