Hiking and Mountain Climbing

This is a hiker's El Dorado during summertime, with more than 240 km (150 miles) of marked pathways and trails in all directions. There are relatively easy hikes to the Naturlehrweg Gössnitzfall-Kachlmoor (1½ hours), Wirtsbauer-Alm (two hours), and the Jungfernsprung (one hour), which ends atop a 500-foot stone cliff above the Mölltal.

Guided Tours. Enjoyable group or private guided tours are available. They cost anywhere from €6 to join a short group tour to €130 per person per day for a private tour lasting from one to three days.
