Accommodation Booking

The Mühlviertel: Incredibly liberating

This country is built of granite that has been sanded down over millions of years by wind, weather and water. The Mühlviertel between the Danube in the south and the Bohemian Forest (Böhmerwald) in the north is a country with a strong character. Its hills open a vista over unimagined open space. At the time it rises up to heights beyond 1000 metres. The rough land has left its mark on the people, their life, their traditions. And it makes the hills and dales into a challenging athletic playground.

Finding the way in the Mühlviertel

Das Bild zeigt zwei Langläufer, die in der gespurten Loipe abwärts fahren.
Das Granithochland erfüllt alle Voraussetzungen für ein Langlauf-Paradies. Inmitten der tief verschneiten Hügellandschaft bei strahlendem Sonnenschein wird man sportlich gefordert und gleichzeitig mit Weitblicken belohnt. In Kombination mit Wellness in den Top Wellnesshotels der Region kommt man zur Ruhe, lässt den Alltagsstress abfallen und tankt neue Energie.

Beer is not just a drink, it connects people and regions

From growing hops to beer brewing- a long tradition

For more than 500 years beer has been brewed in the Mühlviertel, and with the best raw ingredients straight from the region. It is not for nothing that the Mühlviertel is seen as the largest hops cultivation region in Austria and is globally known as a beer heartland.
