Hiking and mountain climbing par excellence

The region around the Erzberg offers idyllic mountains and craggy summit trails. The many striking limestone peaks can be explored along family-friendly footpaths or on spectacular fixed ropes courses and climbing routes. There are other distinctive peaks just a 30 minute drive away such as the Reiting massif as well as the Gesäuse National Park.

 

    The most striking peaks in the area are the:

  • Eisenerzer Reichenstein: magnificent views can be enjoyed from this 2,240 m peak complete with its Alpine Association hut (normal trail from the Präbichl, or alternatively the Grete-Klinger fixed ropes course B/C)
  • Pfaffenstein and Kaiserschild (normal trails, fixed ropes courses C – E, as well as numerous climbing routes)
  • Lugauer (the ‘Styrian Matterhorn’) in the Radmer area
  • Seemauer and Hochblaser towering upright over Lake Leopoldersteinersee (normal trail and fantastic sport fixed ropes courses D/E and E)

 

  • Furthermore, numerous family-friendly peaks – from the Zeiritzkampel to the Stadlstein and various Alpine pastures (e.g. on the 5 Alpine Pastures Tour) offer unforgettable mountains and landscapes for all ages.
  • Plus, there is a spectacular cave tour of the Frauenmauer with access to the Präbichl or Eisenerz/Gsollkehre.
  • And it’s just a 30 minute drive to the starting point of the grand limestone peaks in the Gesäuse National Park.
  • You will find a wide range of route descriptions at www.klettersteige-eisenerz.at from comfortable hikes to special topography for climbing routes and fixed ropes courses.

 

Tip: The fantastic book ‘BergErleben - Eisenerzer Alpen und Hochschwab’ by Siegbald S. Zeller incl. a detailed tour guide for summer and winter is available from the tourist information office in Eisenerz.
