Numerous lakes, natural rivers and streams, lovely Alpine ridges and the striking limestone massifs of Dachstein, Totem Mountains, Sengsen and Höllengebirge are full of contrasts. The glittering goals and companions ensure a healthy dose of freshness and cooling. And a great leisure program creates the appropriate supporting program. Hikers can explore the Salzkammergut from the valley on foot or on one of the many cable cars and cogwheel trains. It does not matter whether you look at the beautiful panorama from the mountains or marvel at the mountains and lakes from the countless hiking trails in the valley. More than 4,000 km of marked hiking trails are available. To strengthen the hiker he finds cozy huts. Fragrant farmer's bread or sweet Kaiserschmarrn give the hike a special aroma.

There are also numerous themed hikes, such as the hiking trail "Genuss am Almfluss". 52 km of hiking along the Almuferweg accompanied by culinary delights. Pilgrim trails provide a spiritual experience: the "Weg des Buches" or the "WolfgangWeg" from Regensburg to St. Wolfgang.
