Ramblers Walking Holidays can take you to various destinations in Austria, each with their own unique character and natural features to suit your personal requirements. Whether you’re looking to stroll through rolling green meadows, hike up rocky summits, or explore breathtaking snow-laden landscapes, you can find it all here.
Enjoy a fantastic day trip on the Hochkonig Panorama Trail, with stunning views of the sun glinting on top of the highest mountain, to the north in the Berchtesgaden Alps. Then, take the pleasure of putting down your backpack; slacken the laces on your boots and rest with a coffee or traditional apple strudel, at a rustic mountain hut. By night, enjoy the soothing sensation of your hotel sauna, preparing your body for tomorrow’s exploration of this Alpine wonderland.
Alternatively, thermal springs, winding valley paths and 2000-metre peaks of Bad Hofgastein make Austria a superb destination for walkers, and you can taste the locally sourced cheeses and hams this region produces, too. If you prefer to venture out into a landscape blanketed in snow, make your way to the rustic village of Bach, where you can go snowshoeing to see the glorious Kalbele and Körber lakes, while enjoying a ski down the slopes.

There’s just so much natural beauty waiting to be discovered on a Ramblers walking holiday in Austria. Forest trails, pastureland and alpine meadows are havens for wild flowers and animals; you might even catch a glimpse of roaming marmots, deer and wild horses as you walk. To fully immerse yourself in the Alpine experience, you can even spend the night in a traditional mountain hut, and enjoy some peace and seclusion.
There is drama in this landscape, too; the tumbling mass of the Weissbach Falls set in a deep gorge is a magical sight. Alternatively, travellers can discover quaint villages in picturesque valleys, traditional chalets decked with geraniums, and beautiful lakes – a true picture-postcard of Austria.
