Austria is a true eldorado for hikers and mountaineers. Between Lake Constance and the town Semmering in Lower Austria, more than 950 three-thousand meter mountains are waiting to be discovered. With its 3,798 meters, the Großglockner is the highest in the Hohe Tauern mountain range and promises pure summit happiness for very ambitious hikers.
Amongst the top ten hiking routes worldwide is the Alpe-Adria-Trail, which brings you at a height of 750 kilometers from the Großglockner mountain to the Adriatic sea in Italy. On this hike you pass through the national park Hohe Tauern with impressive waterfalls and dreamlike landscapes.
The alpine republic, however, has more to offer than high peaks. In Burgenland, heavenly tours lead through romantic vineyards, and in Salzkammergut you will be rewarded with crystal clear lakes, which offer a welcoming refreshment after your long hike.
For leisure hikers, families with children or those who want to take it slowly, numerous mountain trails lead through the wonderful nature without many ascents, opening up stunning panoramas. If you are interested in exciting mountain adventures, you can choose from a variety of themed trails such as the Tauerngold adventure trail or the Holzweg in the Zillertal valley.
