Tyrol, Vomp. Wild and untouched, north of Innsbruck, in the middle of the Karwendel Nature Park, there is an incredible natural spectacle. In the heart of the park is the large maple floor, a unique landscape with more than 2,000 trees. And some animals worthy of protection have also made their home here for centuries. For example the golden eagle and the white-backed woodpecker. Hiking fans are spoiled for choice – from simple alpine hikes to difficult routes lasting several days. Mittermair recommends families to hike from the Großer Ahornboden to the Binsalm. “A gentle hiking route with a great panorama.” And with a bit of luck you can even find a particularly rare alpine flower: edelweiss.

The Ensemble Gerersdorf open-air museum was created as a project for enthusiasts. The village gives an authentic insight into the Pannonian culture of the 18th and 19th centuries. Nestled in the idyllic hill country of southern Burgenland, over 30 historic buildings, most of which are thatched, invite you to get to know what life was like back then.

The residential and farm buildings as well as workshops, which have been painstakingly restored by hand, accommodate a wealth of down-to-earth everyday objects and farm equipment. They provide a comprehensive insight into the Pannonian culture of the 18th and 19th centuries.

How did the museum come about?

Fascinated by the beauty of rural wooden architecture in southern Burgenland with its thatched roof landscape, which was falling into disrepair everywhere, the Kisser family from Vienna acquired the property where the museum is today.

A piece of cultural history

Timber block buildings from the south of Burgenland and the neighboring west of Hungary, which are valuable in cultural history, were transferred here and saved from final decay.essaywriter org reviews In 1973 the construction of the first residential house from Tschanigraben and a basement floor began. Since then, weekend after weekend, vacation after vacation, thousands of hours of work have been put into the service of the “cause”.

The mild autumn weather invites you to go on a long hike. We have five fantastic routes for the whole family.

Whether with friends or family, a day hike or a weekend trip – Jutta Mittermair from Gasteiner Mineralwasser recommends five routes that are definitely worth exploring.

1. Invigorating waters in the Gastein Valley

Salzburg, Bad Gastein. Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein have become world famous as health resorts thanks to their hot springs. The region’s thermal water is said to have a healing effect. If the high mountains of the Hohe Tauern are too big for you, the almost ten kilometer long waterfall path is well advised. It starts at the imposing waterfall bridge in the center of Bad Gastein and leads to the Elisabeth spring, the most productive thermal spring in Bad Gastein.

2. Green lake: the Caribbean of Styria

Styria, Tragöß. The

Green lake

arises year after year, namely when the snowmelt on the over 2,200 meter high Hochschwab pushes water through the limestone soil from below, causing the water level to rise. Within just a few weeks, a lake 12 meters deep was created, devouring the entire landscape – including bridges and benches. In order to discover the “Caribbean of Styria”, as Styrians like to call it, Jutta Mittermair recommends taking the loop on the beautifully laid out hiking trail around the Green Lake.

3. The highest waterfalls in Europe in Krimml

Salzburg, Krimml. At the foot of the Krimml Waterfalls you can see thundering masses of water plunge into the depths, while you can be refreshed by the fine drizzle. With a height of over 400 meters, the Krimml Waterfalls are the highest in Europe. Embedded in the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Krimmler Achental and thus the waterfalls enjoy absolute protection. For nature lovers, the waterfall trail with its numerous viewpoints and pulpits is a must.

4. Saalfelden Leogang: Wonderful view

Salzburg, Leogang. The picturesque holiday region of Saalfelden Leogang is located in the middle of the Salzburg region. The impressive view from the Leoganger Steinberge and the Steinerne Meer is a must for hikers. On the 400 kilometers of well-tended and well-signposted hiking trails, you can climb step by step the surrounding alpine and mountain world, which is up to 2,600 meters high. A slightly easier route, and therefore perfect for a family excursion, starts at the Asitz valley station. It leads along an idyllic hiking trail and ends at the Asitz middle station, where there is also an adventure park for the senses. You can whiz back down into the valley on one of the fastest and longest steel cable slides in the world.
