Russbach, the Austrian hiking village, is a paradise for gourmets, hikers and adventurers. Blossoming alpine meadows invite you to leisurely hikes, wonderful summit and climbing tours in fog-free, almost untouched nature. The magnificent view of the Hoher Dachstein and Tennengebirge accompanies you on all your hikes. Enjoy the good snack in one of the many cozy mountain huts.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the Museum "Fossilienkabinett" at the parish hall is very rewarding.
