A nice excursion tip for families with children: within walking distance, but also comfortable by car! Perfectly combinable with a visit to the fortress Hohenwerfen or the world largest ice cave.
If you want to make yourself comfortable at a picnic like Julie Andrews at the Gschwandtanger, you can borrow a picnic basket and blanket from the tourist office or buy them.
Depending on weather conditions, sun or rain protection, sturdy footwear is recommended.
