Königsberg in den Ybbstaler Alpen

Mountain summit, Scenic lookout


A hiker's paradise and a great tip for cyclists: the long, forested ridge of the Königsberg stretches for about 15 km through the Göstling Alps. Located between Hollenstein an der Ybbs and Göstling, the mountain region offers many beautiful views.

With its rocky step reaching from west to east and several hiking trails, the Königsberg attracts hiking hawks of all levels and ages. Dense forests and lush alpine meadows dominate the picture. Comfortable refuges - Siebenhüttenalm and Kitzhütte - and great excursion highlights make even little fresh-air grumpy hikers quickly enjoy hiking.

Accessibility for hikers & duration
Most of the ascents to Königsberg start from Göstling im Ybbstal. A variant for pleasure hikers and especially families with children is the Königsberg hut hike: by car you first go up the mountain road to the organic farm Kurzeck - and then continue on foot to the Kitzhütte.

Excursion destinations in the Ybbstaler Alps
From the Ybbstaler Solebad to the Erlebniswelt Mendlingtal, from the Lunzer See to the Hochkar cave: the region around the Königsberg holds numerous other wild wonders for the whole family.

Extra tip: The Königsberg is considered an absolute tip for cyclists - with bike park, MTB trails, guided e-bike tours and many more offers.
