Walks & Trails
When hiking in the Hochkönig region, each step leads you deeper into nature. Fresh mountain air, towering rocks, idyllic hill farms, lush meadows, and legendary views of the alpine world – this is a balm for the soul. The network of hiking paths is well signposted and designated with the Austrian Hiking Seal of Quality.
The hiking highlight is the 73 km long-distance hiking trail through the region – the “Königsweg”. Free guided hikes are offered in all towns in the region. Experience nature with your own two feet!
