A wonderful place to hike in the province of Salzburg

Hiking & Mountaineering

Between the rock faces of the Dachstein massif in the north, some of which shoot 3000 m in the sky, and the lofty peaks of the Radstädter Tauern in the south, there’s a wonderful natural landscape to admire and explore. You’ll find the perfect hike for every guest: Gently rolling alpine pastures, crystal-clear mountain lakes, alpine huts offering food and drink, all rounded off with amazing panoramic views.


The town of Radstadt is an ideal starting point for recreational and ambitious trekkers alike. Feel the buzz of reaching a mountain top to soak up the thrilling sweeping views from places like Radstadt’s local mountain, the Rossbrand, which can be reached straight from the town. That is hiking and mountaineering in an eventful hiking holiday.
