The Gutenstein Alps is not the highest mountain range in Austria yet there some fascinating localities interesting for tourists. This not pretty high mountain range created by the Mesozoic Era we put to the Northern Limestone Alps. Tourists and lovers of nature are two often visited localities only 90 km away from Slovakian borders. In Lower Austria near the village of Muggendorf, there are two fascinating natural sights the waterfalls of Myrafälle and Steinwandklamm gorge. Both localities are easily accessible and suitable for easy tourism. The path to waterfalls is well secured thanks to many wooden bridges. Going through the gorge via ladders, and bridges is bit more difficult yet manageable. Above Muggendorf town there is a high rocky klippe belonging to Hausstein (664 m). From there, you can have beautiful vistas over Piestingtal valley or Lower Austria’s dominant peak - Schneeberg (2 076 m).

Maintained slopes, snow covered landscape, amazing vistas, mountain air, cozy cabins – all of these are ingrediends for an unforgettable winter vacation.
Lets see one of the most beautiful via ferrates in the Alps. Calm surface of blue salt Traunstein lake is beneath you guarded by the Julian Alps. Dachstein bows in the distance, Totes Gebirge and Bohemian Forest are in the distance. This is Traunstein.
Glaciers are characteristic and natural part of mountains. Glacier’s erosion adds to creation of alpine relief. Glacier is also a source of water. In Austrian Alps, there are many small or large glaciers. The longest and most well-known is Pasterze, the Hohe Tauern.
Winter is here again. For some, it is perhaps too cold and harsh, but to me it is the most popular season of the year. Everything is hidden under a fluffy white blanket of snow and acts somewhat calmer, and even cleaner than the rest of the year. It is also a time of winter holidays in the mountains, meeting with friends over a glass of mulled wine or it is a time of a great cabbage soup, which will warm you up in this season.
