9 federal states - 9 excursion tips

9 Bundesländer - 9 Ausflugstipps

In this blogpost, we want to show you different activities in all nine Austrian federal states - so you'll be perfectly prepared for your Austria-roadtrip! 


Vienna - National Park Donau-Auen

Some parts of this national park are actually part of Vienna - which means that there's no hours-long traveling necessary. You can start many hikes at the "Nationalparkhaus Wien-Lobau". The so-called "Josefsteg", which leads directly through the reeds, is about 20 minutes away on foot. However, the national park offers countless different routes and also guided excursions.

Lower Austria - Nebelstein

The "Nebelstein" offers an amazing 360-degree view of the "Waldviertel". The hike is suitable for young and "old" outdoor enthusiasts. If you don't want to hike a lot, you can park at a parking lot called "Nebelstein Schutzhütte". Starting from there, it's only a 10 minute walk to the top of the mountain.

Upper Austria - Grünberg

The "Grünberg" in Gmunden is perfect for all ages. You can either hike up the almost 1,000 meters high mountain, but you can also comfortably ride the cable car. On top of the mountain you can find the "Salzkammergut Treetop-Walk". You can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Traunsee and the surrounding mountains. If you want, you could also hike more and visit the "Laudachsee". This hake also takes about 1 hour.

Burgenland - Weinblick am Eisenberg

From this observation platform you can not only see the Burgenland, but also Hungary form above. The name "Weinblick" basically means "wine view" since you can see many vineyards from above. If you want to learn more about wine, there's a museum called "Weinmuseum Moschendorf" nearby.

Styria - National Park Gesäuse

This national park is famous for its "wild water and steep mountains". And that's exactly what makes it perfect for an excursion - there's activities for everyone. Whether it's hiking, climbing, mountain biking, rafting - the possibilities are almost endless. There's lots of activities for rainy days as well - and the world famous "Stiftsbibliothek Admont" is also nearby.

Carinthia - Groppensteinschlucht

This gorge is in the western part of Carinthia and a part of the national park "Hohe Tauern". You can hike though the gorge and even see waterfalls up to 30m high. You can also hike through the gorge by night, which is even more special. There's guided hiking tours every Tuesday night in summer.

Tyrol - Highline179

The Tibet-style suspension bridge Highline179 is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. It's 406m long and leads from Fort Claudia to the Ehrenberg castle ruins. From the bridge, but also from the start and end points, you have a great view. At a height of 114 m, it's better not to drop your mobile phone when taking photos - luckily there's REELOQ.

Salzburg - Salzwelten Salzburg

The "Salzwelten Salzburg" is the oldest visitor salt mine worldwide. Salt has been mined here for 2,600 years. The recently redesigned mine offers exciting insights into salt production and the history of salt mining in Austria. This activity is therefore perfect for bad weather - but the mine also offers cool air in hot weather.
