Helpful park rangers as well as hearty hosts complete the feeling of a place where the world is still alright. A huge variety of nice and easy hiking tours are practicable as well as challenging ones. In high altitude between the mountains Schareck and Ankogl, last freckles of pure white snow invite their visitors for adventure. Here you can find the highest mountains and some of the most beautiful 3000-meter peaks of whole Austria. Altogether you will find the right atmosphere to enjoy your vacation as you deserve it – wonderful, recreational, and paradisiacal.

Some of our visitors are not able to resist the famous call of the mountains. In national park Hohe Tauern monumental peaks are simply too present. Wherever you have your accommodation, it is always possible to be at the foot of a mountain within some minutes of walk. Yet you can start hiking, climbing, or sometimes even drive them by car. It is your decision: flowering meadows or cliffy rocks, paths covered with moss or remained felsic. Feelings are phenomenal when standing on top of one of the 3000-meter Mountains, when you are hanging in the safe ropes during climbing in a cliffy felsic wall, or when you just sit down on a green meadow, having a chilling beer close to a sheltering cottage... happiness is what you will find in many places. Back from the mountains you just enjoy the gemuetliche, i.e. homey way of life of the local people in Gastein.
