Hiking & Mountaineering
Limitless walking pleasure
The towns are just as picturesque as the landscape. Umhausen with its various hamlets (Tumpen, Köfels and Farst) is a fantastic hiking area in summer and a starting point for numerous high Alpine tours. The special attraction here is the Stuibenfall waterfall where the 159 m high mass of water can be viewed from 5 platforms, some very exposed in places! At 1500 masl a suspension bridge crosses above the waterfall and takes you to the idyllic town of Niederthai. Niederthai achieved the status of an officially certified and quality-sealed Austrian Hiking Village. The most important criteria are the village's overall appearance and nearly complete walking and hiking infrastructures.
