Nordic Walking in Austria

Keep Fit in the Ausserfern:

Nordic walking was developed as a summer training method for sportsmen and women from the Nordic winter sports competitions.

The Nordic walking boom reached the Ausserfern in 2004 and holidaymakers and locals alike can now benefit from an excellently laid-out Nordic Walking Fitness Park.

The seven routes which are marked and described stretch from Lechaschau to Weißenbach. At the start of each trail, signs are located giving details of the walk: technique, duration, stretching exercises and heart-rate table.
