Summit views, mountain lakes and delicious food — hiking in Austria

Hiking Collection by Ferien in Österreich

Breathtaking views on the summit hike, cool refreshment in the crystal-clear lake, cozy wine tasting in the cellar lane. Hiking is more than simply walking at your own pace. It's hearing, smelling, and feeling your surroundings; it's perceiving the landscapes that you wander through more intensely than through almost any other means of travel. And in Austria, this experience is even more incredible due to the breathtaking landscape. Therefore, let's embark on a voyage of discovery — experience hikes that will reveal the landscape, the history and the culture of this beautiful country to you.

To immerse yourself in the Austrian landscape, we have selected six unique hiking experiences for this autumn. The Highlights included on each hike represent the diverse landscapes that you can discover in the country, including two mountain huts in the far west that serve as beautiful destinations for your hikes. As you go, you'll hike waterside through fascinating gorges in Tyrol and you'll walk around the largest lake in Carinthia. You'll also visit the breathtaking vineyards of southern Styria and a steppe-like national park that'll offer you the types of views over Austria that you never expected to see. To keep your energy high and your experience rich, the Alpine huts you'll be staying in offer world-class regional fare; perfect for experiencing the famed local flavors.

    On the Styrian hiking route "From glacier to wine", it is the 35th and last stage that leads from the wine village of Klöch to Bad Radkersburg in southeastern Styria. Here you are on the way in the land of the grape variety "Traminer".

    Connoisseurs will get their money's worth on the last stages of the long-distance hiking route. The gently cropped, graceful landscapes of Eastern Styria and the Thermenland not only make it particularly enjoyable to hike, as cultural highlights and culinary delights line the entire route.

    The Klöcher Weinstraße, one of a total of eight wine routes, also takes you through the eponymous village of Klöch. Here you will find the generous wine shop with gourmet corner and the wine museum.

    Around Klagenfurt numerous mountains and forests invite you to be hiked by you. City-related recreational areas such as the Kreuzbergl are the ideal starting point for smaller hikes, where you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the Wörthersee.

    The king walk is of course the Wörthersee circular walk: on a total distance of about 55 km, the terrain is hilly, some steep ascents and descents provide variety and again and again you have beautiful views of the sparkling waters of the Wörthersee and the Karawanken.

    A special highlight is the Pyramidenkogel near Maria Wörth. From the world's highest wooden lookout tower you can enjoy a unique panoramic view of Carinthia and its impressive lake landscape.

    The Mittelalp in the Kleinwalsertal is more than just a hut at high altitude, it offers you a genuine mountain experience: If you like you can look over the shoulders of the hut warden and dairymaid Gerhard Hilbrand.

    The own products from the alpine dairy, alpine and agriculture are processed directly in the Mitellalp mountain hut. This results in tasty soups, hearty hot and cold dishes and above all hearty snacks. The Senner's pride and joy is of course the handmade mountain cheese.

    Real alpine milk, beer, wine, oven-fresh cake or strudel with hot coffee - heavenly delights await you here. Since worth the three-hour hike from Riezlern to the hut twice. On the terrace, the culinary highlight will be crowned with the appropriate panorama.

    Wormser Hütte

    Hiking Highlight

    When you have completed the ascent, the relaxation can finally begin. Wellness is not only for the eyes and palate, but also for your body. In the Kneipp pool you can do even more good things for your health. Hot water showers complete the first-class feel-good package.

    What you should definitely do: eat a portion of the excellent homemade apple strudel. Because the Wormser Hütte is not known for its hot water showers or the porter - most hikers only come here for the delicious apple strudel.

    If you couldn't decide on a sweater and instead packed all your favorite hiking clothes, no problem either: on request and for a fee, your luggage can be carried directly from the mountain station of the cable car to the hut.
