The alpine region Hochschwab in the Austrian state of Styria is a hidden paradise of nature, mountains and alpine pastures.

It is the region with the largest population of chamois in Europe and a treasure trove of rare plants.

Sleepy, lovely villages offer warmly managed accommodation. Recipes of regional award-winning chefs enrich the hut cuisine. The perfect destination for true deceleration.
