Hiking routes in Styria

Whether you are a seasoned sports enthusiast or a leisurely hiker, whether you are planning to go on a family excursion or are looking for a sporty challenge: More than 1,600 hiking trails cover a total of 15,000 kilometres. And they invite you to enjoy a variety of experiences between Dachstein, the Schladming Tauern mountain range, Gesäuse National Park or Hochschwab in the north and the Styrian Wine Country in the south and east.

Families with children are introduced to Styria's nature and culture on around 240 themed trails. The longest of 13 long-distance hiking trails – the northern route "From the Glacier to the Wine" – is a delight on each of its 525 kilometres. There are about 350 mountain huts where you can stop for a break. The highest of them, Seetalerhütte, is located in the Dachstein mountains at 2,740 metres above sea level.

Tip: If you want to save yourself the initial ascent from the valley, there are 17 cable cars and lifts in Styria, which are also open in summer. Numerous toll roads allow you to get to the starting points of many hiking routes in higher altitudes as well.
