Hiking with a view and refreshments

"Hiking is the starter, nature is the main course, and al fresco dining is the sweet crowning touch to a truly enjoyable adventure."

The culinary component should by no means be neglected. The saying “Eating and drinking keeps body and soul together” gets to the point. For this reason, there are numerous huts and inns along our hiking trails that invite you to take a leisurely break. Taking a seat on a sunny terrace, enjoying a hearty “Brettljause” or a tempting pillow filled with jam, while letting your gaze wander over the landscape is simply part of it. The distant ringing of cowbells and the cheerful laughter of the relaxed guests accompany these enjoyable moments like a harmonious melody!

Majestic, powerful and at home in the Almenland Nature Park

The Capricorn

Although ibex were considered extinct around 1800, there are now around 800 of them throughout Styria. In the Almenland Nature Park, the majestic ibexes have once again found their very own place in the impressive mountain landscape. These fascinating animals, characterized by their impressive horns and graceful appearance, are the true rulers of the Alps.

That's why it's not difficult to come across these animals, which live here in the Almenland Nature Park mainly between the Hochlantsch and the Rote Wand. As a rule, they meet curious hikers with stoic calm. Please keep your distance and don't scare the animals! ...and dogs are far too similar to the natural enemy "wolf" and are therefore not liked by Capricorns. Please avoid hiking with dogs between Mixnitz, Bärenschützklamm, Hochlantsch and Roter Wand in order to avoid unpleasant encounters!
