Small and beautiful mountaineering villages to enjoy

The places brought together in the mountaineering villages initiative are all pioneers of Alpinism in their regions. It is no coincidence that in the mountaineering villages the awareness of the harmony between humans and nature is higher than in many other places. Alpinism in the mountaineering villages arose as part of the cultural self-image of its residents and guests, a self-image which it was possible to preserve and further develop over the generations.

The mountaineering villages warmly welcome you!

We are pleased to present you 17 exclusive Austrian mountaineering villlages.

The mountaineering villages ensure a professional tourist offer for mountaineers, feature excellent landscape and environmental quality and are committed to the preservation of local cultural and natural values.
Being Alpine competence centres, the Mountaineering Villages focus on responsibility, ability and sovereignty as well as the environmentally friendly and responsible behaviour of their guests in the mountains.


Most of the summer walking and mountain tours are available for you. Just have a look at each village – point: summer!

We are working on the winter tours as well and hope to present them as soon as possible.
