The trail network in Ramsau Valley

The Ramsau Valley is well developed with a network of trails that offers many advantages: The 10 represented hiking stages can be combined as you wish with further hiking treks or even with each other to form a loop. As individual routes, they are suitable for a leisurely walk. Enjoy a climate-friendly holiday, traveling by foot or with hiking buses, and try to leave your car at your accommodation as much as possible. Nature says "thank you"!
