Winter hiking with vision

The paths of the Viennese Alps are perfectly cleared for challenging tours and leisurely walks.

If you like packing your hiking shoes in winter, you will enjoy the Vienna Alps’ numerous winter walking trails. Crystal-clear sky, breath-taking views and a variety of well-equipped huts, guesthouses and hotels make it perfect as a winter getaway.

A sunny winter stroll or a challenging circuit with an overnight stay – the possibilities are practically endless in the Paradise of glances. The temperature on the mountain tops can be warmer than in the valley. Here hikers lay their jackets on the bench on the trail and feel the warm winter sun on their face.

Snow-cleared winter hiking trails

The snow-cleared winter hiking trails are immersed in nature, and everything is nice and quiet. But if you want a more convivial environment, you can call in at one of the numerous mountain huts. Resting also means spoiling yourself, for example with a warming mug of Jagertee (black tea with rum) and regional specialities.

Hiking in winter

If you want to complete your winter excursion with an overnight stay, one of the comfortable establishments in the hiking villages Puchberg am Schneeberg or Kirchberg am Wechsel can oblige.
