To get the most out of your stay at Das Ronacher and your hikes, be sure you stop for a refreshing bite at the traditional alpine huts. There are around 30 of these alpine huts with regional delights to treat young and old alike. Get inspired not only by the delicious food, but also by the fascinating stories of the hut keepers – after all, some of these huts have been run for over 400 years.
Here is one of our tips! A hike with one of the qualified biosphere reserve rangers makes hiking in Bad Kleinkirchheim a superb experience. These experienced mountain professionals will amaze you with their impressive knowledge of the entire area and its inhabitants. You will get first-hand information about which animals live in the surrounding forests and which plants there are around you. Listen carefully to the birds singing – the rangers will explain to you which bird is singing and what its song means. And don’t forget to bring your binoculars as there is so much to discover on the hiking trails, whether it’s chamois, deer, marmots, or maybe even a shy capercaillie that cautiously ventures out of its hiding place.
On the guided walks, you will learn to closely observe your surroundings and discover details you might have missed before. After such a guided tour, you will see nature from a new perspective when going for a stroll. And after your hike? Relax in one of the 5 Ronacher thermal pools. Those who are looking for some extra special bliss, can treat themselves to a soothing massage. We call this “Thermal LOVE” complete with exciting excursions. And then it’s time for the 6-course menu. You really deserve it.
