Things to do an see from our house

Nice and quiet hikingtrails from our house

Rossbrand: our home mountain offers marvellouse views to at least 150 peaks, including the Großglockner (the higest mountain in Austria). It will take you about 2h on foot; twice a week there´s a bus-shuttle service from Radstadt too. But you may choose one of the three good signed trails through the woods, back to our house. Of course, a MTB route will guide you upon the mountain as well. 

Bürgerbergalm: the well known alp is reached within 45 min on foot, or by bike. Don´t miss a good conversation with the friendly host!

Habersattbauer: nice place to have lunch: from door to door it will take you 2h; also reachable by bike.

Steinalm: if you are looking for some deliciouse, selfmade cheese, alp felling with a lot of animals in the surroundings and a nice atmosphere to relax, you should not miss the Steinalm. For a day trip you might go first over there (2 hours) and then continue upon to Rossbrand.
