Up To The Top

1. Get in touch with nature. At an altitude of 1,893 m the peak of Ötscher towers above the Ybbstal Alps like a king. Here the folks say: “If you have not been on Ötscher, you have not seen Lower Austria!“ At the foot of the mountain you find the idyllic village of Lackenhof and Ötscher-Tormäuer Nature Park with its famous Ötschergräben (gorge system) and the impressive flowstone cave. Relaxing hours in the remote hideout are guaranteed!

2. Sport challenge at Ybbstal Alps. Are you looking for a demanding sport activity on the mountain? Slope touring is also a lot of fun. The combination of exhausting ascents and the fun while racing downhill makes this sport very attractive. And of course, to explore the picturesque mountain scenery at Ötscher is an adventure of its own.
