Green forests, green water and the mighty rock faces of the Almtaler Sonnenuhr (The Almtal Sundial) are unmistakeably the key landmarks in the Mountaineering Village of Grünau im Almtal. The Alpine offering in the Almtal is broadly based and could include a leisurely stroll along the shores of the Almsee lake, a mountain hut hike or even climbing a vertical rockface, all in one area.

WALDNESS® is the name of the new feature in the Almtal. Whatever the weather, a stay in the forest will have a positive impact on health, boost the immune system, reduce stress levels and improve sleep quality. WALDNESS® is offered with the support of experts in the field and introduces participants to different ways of enhancing well-being.
