Konrad Lorenz, the famous animal behaviourist, felt very much at home in this idyllic landscape. Grey geese, ravens, kingfishers and ibis have established themselves as free flying emblems of Grünau im Almtal. The focal point of this wide, mainly densely wooded valley is the Almsee and there are numerous wide trails and circular tours to be explored, taking one to three hours, around the lake and along the valley. The region also conceals other smaller lakes, ancient spiritual sites and beauty spots where you can take a break. An ideal choice for a peaceful holiday in the midst of pristine nature and well located for excursions all over the Salzkammergut region.
Austria’s most unusual school can be found high on a mountain pasture. Visitors can learn about the bread and butter of life in a centuries-old farmhouse.The highlight of the lesson is of course the farmer’s platter! You can try the tasty, home-made produce for yourself.
