Whether you are looking for an alpine summit route, a panoramic leisure hike or a varied walk for the whole family – there is something for everyone in the Pyhrn-Priel region. Climb the high peaks of the Great and Small Pyhrgas, enjoy the lush meadows of the Wurzeralm and relax in the rustic mountain huts which serve regional delicacies. In the holiday region in southern Upper Austria, several miles of hiking trails are waiting for you to discover. In this Collection, we have put together 13 different routes that show you how diverse the Pyhrn-Priel region is.

The themed trail on the Wurzeralm or the scavenger hunt on the way to Hutberg are especially geared towards families. If you're looking for a little more thrill, then you can hike through Austria's second longest gorge or scramble over the via ferrata to the Großer Priel. Are you looking for a relaxed tour with beautiful rest areas? No problem, you’ll find that here too. There are several cozy alpine huts on the way to Hengstpaß. Simply choose your favorite route – there's something for every difficulty level. You can also easily combine some of the hikes or spend an extended night on the mountain for a longer adventure.

If you are planning several days in the region Spital am Phyrn, Windischgarsten or Hinterstoder are ideal base camps. There you will find a good selection of accommodation as well as a tourist information office and the different starting points of the routes are easily accessible from the towns. On some hikes, you can even take a cable car up to the start. A plus point: you can stop off at a rustic mountain hut for refreshments along almost all hikes so you do not need to pack your backpack unnecessarily heavy.
