For those who like to have calmer activities, there are many classic trails featuring a great view over the Ennstal. Hiking trails have a long tradition in the region and mark the beginning of tourism in the alps. The possibilites for days off are many and varied. Don't forget to visit "Spiegelsee" (engl. "Mirror Lake") and our home mountain Schideck, the world famous Dachstein-glacier and "Halseralm", an original alp built in the 18th century. Your host family really likes to organize a walking tour to "Ursprungsalm" (engl. "alp of origin") for you by request. You won't find electricity or water pipes there! To a greater degree, fresh water from mountain streams give you the chance to have a cold (and free) refreshment. Enjoy the wonderful nature and escape from the closeness and stress in the big cities.
