Mighty mountain ranges that cover the country to two thirds, fresh air, intact nature, clean water and a pleasant climate – that´s Austria! Austria's unique cultural and natural landscape borders Germany to the north, Switzerland to the west, Italy to the south and Hungary to the east.
Nature is best explored in the warm season by hiking, climbing and biking. If you want to master great alpine challenges, start climbing Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner (3798 m). Pleasure hikers go on a relaxed tour or one of the many high trails.
