Hiking in Austria evokes beautiful images for everyone. Green meadows, clear blue skies, babbling mountain streams, mountain slopes sprinkled with wildflowers, and that crisply fresh air. Whether you enjoy more challenging hikes (even climbing!) in the Alps or prefer to be a valley hiker, Austria is the ideal country to fully embrace your hiking shoes!
Along the way, you'll encounter beautiful alpine flowers.

Best hiking routes and most enjoyable areas in Austria

What are the most beautiful places to hike in Austria? ChaletsPlus would be delighted to take you to some of our top picks:
  • In the well-known car-free Saalbach-Hinterglemm in the Salzburger Land, you'll find over thirty accommodations from ChaletsPlus, beautifully integrated into the surrounding nature. Most of our chalets are located near the Schönleitenbahn gondola and the Schattberg section. You can head directly into the mountains!
  • Wald im Pinzgau: Idyllically situated at the foot of the protected natural area Hohe Tauern. This is an absolute highlight for those who love endless hiking in an unspoiled environment. Even ski lifts are not allowed here, so an unobstructed view of the blue sky is guaranteed. And the best part? You can set off well-prepared with a delicious lunch from our own bread service!
  • Neukirchen am Großvenediger is a cozy town with small streets and nice, family-friendly restaurants that modestly align with the highest mountain in the area: the Großvenediger, with its impressive 3666 meters height, gives the village a unique charm. It's ideal to rent a family accommodation from ChaletsPlus here and explore the surroundings with the whole family on the generously laid-out hiking trails. Take advantage of our bread service and enjoy hiking all day in the wonderful nature!

Multi-day hikes in Austria

In almost every federal state in Austria, you can participate in multi-day hikes. Such long-distance hikes start right at your trusted accommodation from ChaletsPlus, and then you decide how many days you want to be on the trail. There are hundreds of stages to discover, so you have plenty of choices when it comes to the distance and difficulty level that best suits you (and your family)!

Culture, food, and drink in Austria

What makes hiking in Austria even more special? Not only will you be amazed by the fantastic nature, but you can also indulge in delicious regional dishes. Austrians are a friendly, relaxed people who cherish a strong bond with nature. This is reflected in the delightful, often locally originated specialties (think of Kaiserschmarrn, Käsespätzle, or Leberkäse). Additionally, Austria has a long tradition of brewing beer, and you'll find excellent local wines like Grüner Veltliner and, of course, a variety of tasty Schnapps. Not only during your hikes will you find great terraces and mountain huts with wonderful local dishes everywhere, but also in every supermarket near your chalet from ChaletsPlus, you can fill your cart with high-quality ingredients.

A hiking vacation in Austria is a true pleasure for body and mind! Will we see you soon in one of our chalets?
