Hiking from the PayerbacherHof

Hiking and climbing on the Rax
The Rax, with its numerous via ferratas, is only a few kilometers away (with a direct bus connection from the hotel).
We will inform you about the most beautiful ones (and if you want, even the steepest) paths.
Without any effort, you can reach the high plateau in less than ten minutes with the cable car - the first passenger suspension railway in Austria.
The Semmering and the Schneeberg also offer you many hiking trails. Bothareas can be reached by car in half an hour.
Explore our area on a mountain bike - there are numerous eventful routes available to you, including the Grillenberg route and the Kreuzberg
route. We even offer chargeable high-end E-mountainbikes for our guests.
You like it more action-packed?
Then we recommend the Bikepark Zauberberg Semmering or the Wexl-Trails in St. Corona.
You can splash around, swim or just lie in the sun in numerous outdoor pools in our area.
On particularly hot days, we recommend a trip to the Höllental, which is well worth seeing - including cooling off (in the truest sense of the word) in the Schwarza.
We'll be happy to tell you about the loveliest spots there.
The Reichenau theater is Austria's summer theater highlight and takes place every year in July and August for six weeks. Since our hotel is less than a kilometer away, you can easily walk along the romantic Schwarza fisherman's promenade to the theater.
