Explore the most popular river trails in Austria with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Best visited if on a river cruise with a stop in Durenstein. This hike has some elevation but with a great view. It also has history as the trail leads to the castle ruins where King Richard the Lionhearted was imprisoned on his return from the crusades. Learn about King Richard and the legend of Robin Hood in the way to the top through signage along the trail.

Picturesque location for plenty activities on the lake and on the surrounding mountains, easy hikes partially done due to limited time, will visit again for more hikings.

Beautiful and enjoyable experience.

This was just a short walk, but very senic. My wife and I stayed at the hotel and took this walk on the day of arrival before having dinner. It was a nice way to become aquainted with the area and would equally be an excellent after-dinner-walk. We enjoyed looking up to the mountains, across the fields to the trees, up and down the valley and listening to the mountain water move through the rocky riverbed.

It was a nice hike, especially through the gorge. About 1/3 of the hike is on a wide forest road, 2/3 on a well marked pathway. The information desk in Scharnitz was very helpful and provide free maps and recommendations for the hike.
