The Myrafälle were made accessible by the ÖTK in 1885, and have since been maintained by Sektion Pernitz Muggendorf.

Since Autumn 2007, quite a lot of work has been done along the Myrafälle and around the Hausstein. 11 information boards guide you through this impressive landscape. Learn about how the power of water has been used as a driving force for woodworking machines or power generation since 1783. The residents of the valley also used the water wheels for grinding barley, wheat and oats. Stroll through your natural surroundings, enjoy the fabulous view from the Hausstein and then relax in one of our cosy inns, for example the Myrastub’n, the Karnerwirt, or the Gasthaus Jagasitz. A climbing paradise and a carefully designed water playground await our younger visitors. Includes adventure rafting in Myrateich.

(Entry: adults €5, children 6-14 years €1,50.)

Safety information

Walking in the Viennese Alps should be a completely safe and beautiful experience. Therefore, please note the following:

Preparation

Make sure that your choice of route matches your hiking experience and your physical condition. Check the weather forecast. In the mountains, the weather can change surprisingly quickly. For this reason, make sure you are well-equipped (e.g. bring rain protection).

Check that the huts and refreshment stations that you want to visit along the way will be open. Tell someone which route you have chosen, and when you hope to return, before you set off.

Equipment

Bring a suitable map. Wear suitable, sturdy shoes, and bring sun and rain protection, as well as water and a bite to eat. Bring your mobile phone, and save the emergency number of the mountain rescue team: 140
