Breathtaking hiking in Austria

Experience unique mountain scenery up close

Hiking in Austria, in the fantastic Hohe Tauern mountain range is always an impressive experience. Your gaze extends over rich green valley and idyllic towns with just the bright blue sky above you and nothing but an unspeakable feeling of happiness that lets you forget the effort of the climb in no time at all.

Set off on a hike in Austria with our mountain guide Ecki five times a week. Whether you prefer a leisurely hike through the flowers on the mountain pastures or as a real mountaineer want to conquer the heights, you are always in the best hands and expertly advised at the Jesacherhof. That's what also makes hiking in Defereggen Valley on roughly 300 kilometres of hiking trails so special!

Go hiking in Austria with Ecki from Monday to Friday always at 9.00 a.m. Return to the hotel packed to the rim with new wonderful impressions just in time for the afternoon energy and cake buffet.

We have prepared a mountain pasture hiking package exclusively for your hiking holiday in Austria, just in case you would prefer to set off on your hike without our guide:

  • Selected hiking suggestions for beginners and fit hikers
  • Free hire of telescopic hiking poles, backpacks, water bottles and thermos flasks
  • Free packed lunch to provide you with new energy at the right time
  • After an adventurous time outdoors enjoy our afternoon energy buffet on the sun terrace in the garden or in our lounge and dining room, which is flooded with daylight.

Our hiking tips


Jagdhausalm & Pfauenauge

Simply impressive! Austria's oldest Alpine village from the 13th century gives you a real high when walking in Defereggen Valley. A little bit further on, hidden behind a moraine is the Pfauenauge, a wonderful circular lake.



Leisurely hiking in Austria. The lifts in front of the Jesacherhof hotel take you up to roughly 2,000 metres where numerous hikes start out from. Mountain restaurants and snack bars that serve typical Austrian delicacies invite you to take a rest while hiking in Defereggen Valley.



Lasting memories for both the young and old. This family hike starts at 3,300 metres and leads from the Kals top station to the Matrei top station.
