Descending from the precipitous rock walls of the Rax, the landscape ranges from the gentle slopes of the Reichenau valley to the rugged romantic Höllental.

The woodland spreads upwards over the idyllic Kreuzberg before petering out on the Semmering. The mountains impress with their beauty, hiking trails and climbing routes of every degree of difficulty, and  mountain huts.

Not for nothing is our region known as “panorama paradise”, offering views of soaring mountains on one side and across the lowland plain as far as Lake Neusiedl on the other.

Architecture and nature, tradition and a pioneering spirit, tranquillity and dynamism, culture and sport – the region combines contrasts in a fascinating way in a landscape of nature and culture.
