Weberland, Austria´s most important weaving region, is not only a center for textile crafts but also a great destination for family hiking holidays.
Families wishing to escape the crowds will enjoy charming HELFENBERG which is set amid the gently rolling hills of Steinerne Mühl! Enjoy beautiful walks and hikes to attractive sights such as the Piberstein castle ruins, an old forest chapel with a “holy spring” or Helfenberg castle, or just go for leisurely strolls and soak up the region’s scenic beauty.
Leisure facilities include outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, horse riding, and a hunting course. Many beauty spots are within easy reach of Helfenberg and there are plenty of sporting activities nearby.
The town’s main square boasts a century-old weaving loom instead of the traditional fountain.
