Mountain hiking paths
Unspoilt Alpine and mountain hiking paths for athletic pleasure hiking. The routes are moderately demanding and will take you to attractive vantage points, scenic destinations and serviced mountain huts. Good shoes, light hiking clothes and weather protection are required for these tours.
Demanding paths at high altitude, steep paths and summit paths for athletic and experienced hikers. The day tours in the magnificent landscape of the low mountain ranges and the high mountain regions enchant hikers with their scenic beauty and splendid panoramic views. Depending on the difficulty level, good, high-Alpine equipment and sufficient physical condition are necessary.
Theme-specific educational trails and paths. Many information boards and experience islands give information about the fauna and flora, spectacles of nature or cultural characteristics. The great theme hikes take about 1 to 2 hours and normally do not require special equipment.
