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.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the village square in the direction of the Hornbahn, then follow signs for the “HornRundweg” via the Alte Gschüttstrasse to the Franzl Alm.
