If doing nothing is not enough

Hiking & Cycling

There are plenty of great hikes in the area, without the usual crowd you find in Austrian tourist hot spots. With your mountain bike you can also explore the mountain roads.

Explore

Go mushroom picking, search for gold, walk alongside the relaxing little river, explore the forest with your kids, try to spot some deer and enjoy the calmness of nature.

Excursions

On hot summer days you might long for a swim and on colder days you might want to enjoy a thermal bath.

Explore a historic Silver Mine

Everybody going underground in the silver mine of Oberzeiring today will experience a very old myth, which has been attracting people for many centuries and still is present.
There are many stories about the mine of Oberzeiring: It could have been the largest in the Eastern-Alps; it is said that the miners were rich people and that due to their excessive life the village was damned.

Especially on very hot days, after a hike, it is fun to jump into the cool water in the organic bathing pond, 30 minutes away by car.

Swimming pond

Only 20 minutes by car from the house you will find this beautiful recreational facility with a swimming pond. Since this place is hardly known, you can relax and enjoy almost on your own.

Edelrautehütte & Bösenstein

Beautiful hut with very good cuisine - from there you can do the very famous and popular round hike to the Bösenstein (8km, 836hm). With small(er) children you can also just walk to and around the beautiful Scheiblsee.

Wildalmhütte

A great starting point for hikes to different peaks. The hut also serves food & drinks in the summer months. (Leave early by car to find good parking and to avoid a long walk along the forest road).

Hohenwart

My favourite hike - it starts 3km from the house and it leads you through forests, across rivers and small waterfalls up to a plateau with numerous small ponds. From there you take the ridge trail up to the peak. Spoiler: Expect pure relaxation, as you probably will meet only a handful of people along this fabulous hike (13km, 830hm).
