The Ybbstal Alps in autumn

Autumn-time is hiking-time in the Ybbstal Alps

Autumn brings clear mountain air and magnificent views to the region around Ötscher, Lunzer See lake, Hochkar and Königsberg.

From the highest mountain of the Mostviertel, the Ötscher, into the country "einischaun" (take a view), hike the mountain lakes from Lunz am See, see from the Hochkar summit to the Dachstein 100 km away or explore the alpine huts at the Königsberg: When the Ybbstal Alps wear their colourful dress, a hiking or mountain tour is particularly worthwhile. On the theme trails of the region, there is a lot to discover, especially for children.

"Fluss-Radeln" (river cycling) with pleasure

If you don't want to explore the mountains but the autumnal Upper Ybbs Valley, you can cycle from Waidhofen an der Ybbs to Lunz am See (or vice versa). The Ybbstalradweg leads picturesquely along the Ybbs and enables a cycle tour without gradients in the middle of the Ybbstal Alps. Many places to stop for refreshments along the way ensure that culinary delights are not neglected.
