Gesäuse

Ardning

You could make a big mistake when you approach the Bosruck tunnel: namely not turning left to Ardning in the Gesäuse. This is a destination for those who like recreation. Why? One of the last alpine moors exists there - the visitor-friendly Pürgschachen moor.

About the region

In addition, the pilgrimage church of Frauenberg and the Ardningalm with hiking routes into nearby Upper Austria await you as well as the very unique natural swimming pond in Frauenberg. Ardning calls itself a "recreation village". You will see right away how the 1,200 population municipality (incidentally where the action artist Günter Brus is from) keeps this promise with its location on the popular Enns cycling path.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday while hiking, the Ardning Alm Lodge is just the place for you. You can park the car there and see what's going on a few metres higher in the Haller Mauern. The good thing about it: from an easy alpine pasture hike, including an alpine meadow museum, to the Wildfrauen-Klettersteig (via ferrata), it has it all. If you can safely do without the altitude, you can indulge in an excursion into one of the last alpine moors. The strictly protected habitat called the Pürgschachen Moor is worth seeing and can be experienced from a very mild nature experience path. Relaxation and a mystic experience for the whole family! In winter, there are numerous ski tours to be discovered around the Gesäuse, one of the most popular ski tour areas in the Eastern Alps.
