Colorful folk traditions, rustic and welcoming mountain huts, the world’s most delicious pastries and, of course, the soaring beauty of the Alps – these highlights are the essence of hiking in Austria. Over the centuries, the area has been ruled by Celtic tribes, Romans, noble families such as the Hapsburgs, and Nazi Germany. Despite the political turmoil, the landscape has remained eternal, and the culture has emerged as distinctly its own. Resplendent, snow-capped peaks tower over gently rolling meadows sprinkled with wildflowers. Geranium-filled villages are centered around solemn, steepled churches. Cheese and flaky pastries seduce even the most stalwart traveler.
Hiking in Austria brings unimaginable views with layers upon layers of color and texture – bright green pastures mowed short by grazing cows are bordered by the dark green of shady pine forests. Behind that, a spectrum of grays rises up from the rugged mountains, which is topped off by a brilliant blue sky and puffy white clouds. Discover the landscape, culture, and history of this charming corner of central Europe.
