    The Hinterstoder World Cup Village is located at the end of the valley, surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Totes Gebirge mountain range. It's a trully unique recreational resort offering clean mountain air and unspoilt landscapes in abundance. Forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life in this lovely little town and enjoy a good day of hiking in the nature, it will be your highlight of the holiday.

    We took the following trails:
    * Circular walk "Along the Alpine Meadows": a 4 kilometer trail, between 780 and 880 meters altitude and 2 hours long at a gentle pace;

    * Dietlgut - Baumschlagerreith - Steyr Spring: A must do when you're in Hinterstoder. Path no. 209a and it's a 45 minutes hike. Just remember that the river the Steyr originates from 7 sources and you will see them all;

    * Fairytale Picture Rub Walk: It depends and therefore is a 30 minutes to 3 hours walk - Just a special walking experiences for the little guests! Children will enjoy this one.

    Equipment: Have a look at Hinterstoder Packing List.

    Hiking - Hiking with my kids!

    by Jerelis Updated Oct 8, 2008

    Iris in front of the Totesgebirgte.

    I undertook several hikes with my kids Sam and Iris. Of course they were thrilled to come along. It's probably one of the kindest things an adult can do with his children -> just to walk or hike with them in the outdoors. Both Iris and Sam were fascinated with what they could find when exploring this wild place, where we hiked for hours without even meeting another Human being.

    The Stoder Valley is one of the areas of Austria with the lowest amount of rain. It's great to hike this extensive and unaffected natural landscape. The Totes Gebirge mountain range encompasses a large number independent nature preserves which are not only recreation areas, but offer the ambitious fan of nature - and the city person looking for quiet - constantly new experiences.

    Of course it's rewarding to clime all the way up several Mountains, like we did to the Poppenberg, Hutterer Höss and Klener Priel. Once up there you can enjoy the inspiring views over the valley of the Stoder Valley. The seasonal conditions art great for hiking all year around. One of the upcoming hypes is to bike your way around.

    Hiking - The Poppenberg.

    The entire area of Hinterstoder contains an easy-to-follow network of over 1800 kilometers of trails that are fully maintained and open to the public free of charge, seven days a week. The hikes we took lead us through the most diverse forms of landscapes. Maybe the most surprising was the one we took upwards the Poppenberg, a closeby hike we just didn't expect to find.

    As we got near the village of Hinterstoder and reached our guest house of the Family of Pernegger we found a wooded and rocky mountain ridge - The Poppenberg. Next to the petrol station in Hinterstoder the fortified walking path no. 26 lead us to the foot of a steep slope. The partly steep path winds up through the forest. During this hike and before we reached the peak we enjoyed some wonderful views we had over the Stoder Valley surrounded by the peaks of the Totes Gebirge range. Benches invited us for a few rests. Not far from the benches we found a transmitter, from there a newly-laid forest road leads to either Mitterstoder or to Tambergau and the Strumboding waterfall.

    Hiking - Hutterer Plateau and Hutterer Höss.

    Hiking is for us just a way of relaxing. We do undertake hikes with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. Our hikes in the surroundings of Hinterstoder were with that exact reason and the woods and mountains contained one of the most picturesque hikes we ever did. Its low population density and its distance from the large transportation routes of our time, make it an ideal recreation area for people seeking peace and quiet.

    On a beautiful morning Patricia and I decided to walk our way up all the way to the Hutterer Höss. We took the car to the city centre and started our intensive hike. From the centre of Hinterstoder after the restaurant Dorfstube left along the tar-road to the Berghof Sturmgut we started it all. Continue along the foothpath and sriveway over the ski piste to the fork no. 217 at the netrance to the high forest. Carry on through the forest up to the Schrenkenzieheralm mountain hut (not open to the public) and again along the pist for a few minutes to the Hutterer Plateau. I did imagine the entire time that just a few month bfore our hike I used the ski the same road downhill, how weird!!!

    On the Hutterer Plateau we walked on the gravel road across the valley right towards the reservoir. Stay on the gravel path, which climbs steadily up to the Berggasthof Hutterer Höss for a well deserved refreshment stop!

    Hiking - Schiedeweier pond - Polstergut - Dietlgut

    Just a stone's throw from the little village of Hinterstoder is one of the most attractive hiking area of Austria. Every time we are in Hinterstoder we undertake this hike for sure, the trail is fairly well-marked and took us through beautiful vegetations. The trail hugs the mountain range of the Tottes Gebirgte so losing the trail is very unlikely.

    Just follow the bridge along the meadows and pass the sports ground. Along the banks of the Steyr pass the pools to the Shiedeweier Pon, with definately fabulous views of the Spitsmauer and Gr. Priel, which you can very often see reflected in the pond. Either continu along the Polsterstüberl (refreshment stop) or a short way back along the forest road and then along the Alpine Club path no. 201 along the slope, where you reach the forest road again just before the Polstersüberl. After this at the junction turn left onto road no. 209, along the edge of the meadow, then through a forest to the crossroads next to a bridge. Just follow the raod past fences to the Nickergut. The path leads through the farmyard, then past several houses and meadows. Just before you get to the Dietlgut, you'll see the Dietlkapelle on the right. This forest chapel is tempting for a thoughtful rest. After a few minutes you reach your destination ... the Dietlgut (refreshment shop). Just one tip -> Have Kaisersmarre with a large beer. Enjoy!

    Hiking - So much to explore at the Stoder Valley.

    Although the ski world cup-village of Hinterstoder is primarily known as a winter destination, it also offers a wide range of summer attractions and leisure facilities. A vast network of well marked hiking paths invites you to enjoy nature at its best. Whatever you want, an easy walk or challenging rock climbing trail – the unique and spectacular alpine backdrop here in the Stoder Valley presents you with both.

    Therefore it a very nice place to start a hike way up the trails near the surrounding mountains. The nature trails provides great ways to see the sites. As usual natural or human histories were the focus of our hikes. There is much to discover, much te revel in, and much to treasure forever, right here in the Hinterstoder alpine area. It offers unsurpassed options for hikers of all skill levels. A variety of trails starts right at the village itself which is about 585 meters of elevatuon. Some other trails start at the Huttere Höss (1,831 meters) which provides very good walking country with fine views.

    Snowboarding in the Alps

    by RawdgerDodger Updated Jul 15, 2006

    Check out the powder dude!

    Imagine perfect slopes, white powder, a beautiful view, nice people, beer, and hot grog and then imagine riding a snowboard all around the mountain. Does this sound like the perfect dream? Well it's a reality. I'm talking about none other then the mountain of Hinterstoder. This Austrian snowboarding paradise is the best low key commercial mountain I have found in Europe. It is so low key that the whole mountain only speaks Austrian German. Sorry, English is not available.

    Equipment: You can bring your own board, boots, and bindings or just rent it at the hut.
