In Russbach you can reach everything by foot, anyway a free shuttle bus is available to get to the base station of the ‚Hornbahn‘. The ‚Hornbahn‘ is the best point to start a family-friendly skiing pleasure in the heart of Austria. Particularly the numerous alpine huts with their pleasant and original atmosphere invite the guests to take a snack or just to enjoy a sunbath.

Hiking in Russbach and in the region Dachstein West

The multitude of hiking areas around the also in summer snow-covered Dachstein mountain and the close-by Salzkammergut lakes, Russbach is an ideal starting point for all nature and sport fans throughout the whole year. Well-kept walking and hiking trails with a marvellous view as well as challenging alpine trails are available for our guests. Russbach’s best-known hiking trail is called the ‚Jungbrunnenweg‘. A little facility for hydropathic treatment (Kneipp) and a number of children’s playground installations offer fun and relaxation for the entire family.

Also free child care is offered in the base station of the ‚Hornbahn‘. Moreover, our house is an ideal starting point for ski touring (area ‚Gamsfeld‘). Furthermore, free toboggans are available to use on the toboggan slope. Last but not least our shoe dryer can be used for free.


For your summer holidays our apartment house is also located optimally. Beside a wonderful hiking area, a special highlight is the canoe-track for children at the little river. In addition, the facility for hydropathic treatment (Kneipp) is only 2 going minutes afar. Every tuesday there is a walking tour with Kathi, where you can learn more about herbs.
