The Fascination of Hiking

Walking Holiday in Sankt Johann-Alpendorf

Walking – on a pleasant outing with the family or on a guided hike with your holiday hosts, in Spring, Summer and Autumn – is an experience that brings people together, relaxes the spirit and strengthens the body.


Follow extreme mountain climbers, sheep herders and mountain goats to their homes on high in the mountains of Austria where the air is clear and the water serene.


The exciting hiking and walking routes in the alpine countryside surrounding Sankt Johann-Alpendorf are suitable for all abilities, from the seasoned adventurer to families with small children, from May until September and also in Ocotber. And children will love the freedom to play in the outdoors and explore unusual sites off the beaten track.
