Theme Trails

Like Lifelines through the National Park.

Weidendom Visitor Centre – that’s where the theme trails start. They are the place to be for those who do not want to go hiking or climbing, but instead prefer to enjoy a pleasant walk combined with some entertainment and lots of new knowledge. Lettmaier Au trail, Leierweg trail and Wild John invite you to discover the National Park with all your senses. Most of them are also wheelchair-accessible, thanks to Swiss-Tracs.

Come to the Gesäuse and bring along your mum, your children and your grandma, because here you can walk on several theme trails, which will not only make you fitter, but also all the wiser. There’s something for everybody: for the younger ones we’ve got the ‘Wild John’ theme trail, where you will find out about the exciting tale of this hero. ‘Wild John’ is imprisoned, which is synonymous to the straightening of the creek. Step by step you will hear more about his adventures. Let’s get started where all the trails in the Gesäuse depart – at the parking lot at Weidendom Visior Centre.

Lettmaier Au, Leierweg and Rauchbodenweg Trail

Choose the barrier-free Leierweg Trail for a pleasant walk and find out more by reading the information charts along the trail. The icing on the cake is the view of the Enns Valley. You’ll also find the Lettmair Au wetlands close to the water. The adventure stations are not only fun but they provide lots of new knowledge along this trail, which is 1.5 km long and also offers a splendid view of the Enns River at its end. Wanna go further? Then take Rauchbodenweg Trail to Gstatterboden – accessible by bike and wheelchair.

Haindlkarhütte Lodge

A house near the rock face.

Not too far away from the valley and yet still in the high-Alpine area lies the Haindlkarhütte Lodge. No matter if the lodge is your final destination or just a stop-over on the way to a climbing route, it’s going to be legendary visit. On your way up you will come across chamois and dolomite sculptures and when you finally get to the lodge your hosts will serve you delicious food and put a big smile on your face. Meanwhile, all of this takes place in an arena of stone and rock, directly in front of the towering Hochtor Mountains that look down at you from more than 1,000 metres high.

Old and Young.

Von Gstatterboden oder vom Erbsattel geht es durch viel Wald, Wiesen, Weiden vorbei an Schmetterlingen, Kühen und kleineren Blumenmeeren hinauf auf die Ennstalerhütte. Dort wartet eine Stärkung mit Ausblick, bevor dann der Tamischbachturm unsicher gemacht wird. Mit Liebe zum Detail und bequemen Liegestühlen atmet man hier Abenteuerluft. Und auf einmal lebt man dann nur mehr im Moment. Wunderbar!

Hartelsgraben Theme Trail

500 metres of elevation – that’s the hurdle you’ll have to take if you want to get to know the oldest forest road in Styria and if you want to marvel at the cascading waterfalls. By reading the charts along the way you’ll discover the history of logging and of course there are far worse things than hiking in the Hartelsgraben Notch and ending the hike at the beautiful Sulzkaralm pasture.

Sulzkaralm Hut

Sulzkaralm Hut

To be called the most beautiful pasture of a National Park must mean something, right? But how come? Probably because the pasture boasts a lovely lake, a cosy hut and lots of animals, such as marmots, cows and chamois. Or is it because it is conveniently located between Hesshütte Lodge and Hartelsgraben Notch? It doesn’t really matter, all you need to know is that this is a place where you can put up your feet, close your eyes and simply… enjoy!
