Hiking & countryside

Styrian Krakau: as diversified as it is beautiful;

Nestled between the Sölkpass and the Preber Peak lies the hiking region known as Styrian Krakau. With countless summits, Alpine lakes, mountain pastures dotted with small cosy hut restaurants and unspoiled flora and fauna, Styrian Krakau is considered a real insider tip for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.

Between the peaks, dales such as the Prebertal, Rantental and Etrachtal Valleys soften the craggy and rugged landscape and provide excellent views of the surrounding mountains as well as forming a natural basin for pure, crystal-clear Alpine lakes.

The varied walks range from gentle strolls through the charming villages and walks to local energy spots in the valleys, fascinating cultural expeditions, guided themed walks, hiking tours to mountain pastures and the typical huts and Alpine lakes to challenging mountain tours to the majestic summits.   

Here a summary of the most popular summits:
Preber (2.740 m), Roteck (2.742 m), Tockneralm (2.357 m), Predigtstuhl (2.545 m), Ruprechtseck (2591 m), Hubenbauertörl (2.051 m), Bauleiteck (2.424 m), Süßleiteck (2.507 m) uvm.

  • a transfer service to starting and finishing points
  • Krakau offers all the necessary facilities for a perfect hiking holiday and is therefore one of a chosen few Styrian villages that can call itself a Hiking Village.
