Hiking starts with the first step

The Salzkammergut in Austria is in many ways a region that is ideal for hiking. The region in the middle of the Alps is known for its unique mountain world and, above all, for its warm host, which creates ideal conditions for hiking in the Salzkammergut. As a mountain hiker, you will find fantastic conditions here, but even further down in the valleys or at lower altitudes, there are many paths through nature that you can walk even with less experience.

It comes from the heart

In the Salzkammergut, we know that nothing can be taken for granted. That's why we take responsibility together: for our quality of life. For our nature. For unique products. For new thinking and groundbreaking innovations. All this is only possible with the special passion of each and every one of us. That's why every move is a matter of the heart for us – because we love what we do and do what we love.

Everything you need for hiking

In our wide range of hiking activities, we have put together the most beautiful tours, the most popular mountain huts and the most beautiful viewing spots for you. Here you will find everything a hiker's heart desires.
