Good infrastructure and sound advice for hikers near Vienna

The Vienna Alps offer the best hiking conditions. You can see this for yourself in each of the 19 stages of the Arc of the Viennese Alps trail, which has numerous starting points, and is signposted throughout.

Certified hiking villages and hiking hotels

High quality standards apply in the hiking villages of Puchberg am Schneeberg and Kirchberg am Wechsel. They are about an hour’s drive away from Vienna, and have their own hiking starting points, as well as an easily accessible and well-organised network of trails.

There are also special certified hiking hotels, which are oriented towards hikers’ needs, and a perfect for a weekend away. Here you can rent equipment and receive hiking tips. On request, the owner will happily serve as a hiking guide.  

A visual paradise

After your first steps, you will soon want more – “let’s carry on up the hill”, “let’s go to this hut”, and “let’s see where the river takes us”. The journey is worth it as the views in the Vienna Alps always impress with beautiful insights and outlooks.
