Hiking in Autumn Program 2017

New program in progress

Even now, the team from the "Obertrauner Wanderherbst" are working on an extensive program for the forthcoming season. After all in the summer / autumn 2018 there will again be numerous guided hikes in Obertraun to the most beautiful places in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. An overview can be found on this page from spring 2018! Until then, we wish you well!

What is the “Obertraun Autumn Highlights“?

When the days start to get cooler in the Dachstein Salzkammergut , and there is dew on the meadows in the mornings, now is the loveliest time of year to go walking in the mountains of the Dachstein massif. The temperature remains pleasant throughout the day and visibility in the mountains gets better and better. There is no more perfect a time to go out and discover your natural surroundings.

A quiet enjoyment for nature lovers

As part of the "Obertraun Autumn Highlights" (Obertrauner Wanderherbst) experience, there are guided walks from August through to October. We can offer something to suit all tastes and levels of fitness. Gentle hiking with all the family with woodland discovery days are always very popular, as are high altitude alpine tours for experienced, adventurous walkers and climbers.

Hiking with the colour palette of nature

Music lovers wil appreciate the sounds of the „Weisenbläser“ on Wednesdays on the shore of Lake Hallstatt. These brass musicians perform from a traditional wooden boat on the lake which glistens in the evening sun. There are other lovely traditions such as two Full Moon Cable Car Trips which take place in August, September and October. Standing on the „5fingers“ Viewing Platform on the Krippenstein by moonlight is medicine for the soul. Hiking, music, tradition and the Alpine Pasture Festival in Koppenwinkel Nature Preservation Area are the foundations of the Obertrauner Wanderherbst.

Every year, visitors and local people experience the natural beauty of the Salzkammergut and discover inner harmony. Discover a sense of togetherness, harmony, luck, happiness and well-being this autumn.
