(Trail running) runners will find their pure joy in Obertauern: Crisp climbs will alternate with passages with a few metres of altitude. The alpine surroundings will be full of discoveries and new appeals, and the many-faceted natural landscape together with the wide panorama will make your head so free. Let your thoughts wander and your feet take you as far as your fancy and strength allows.
Running in the mountains: Variety instead of monotony
Trail running is not so much about collecting kilometres. More emphasis is put on the metres of altitude, on general duration and on the profile of the route. Last but not least, the variation of the terrain and of the area is also an important element of this type of cross-country running. Thanks to the different terrains all muscles will be trained, the joints strengthened and the balance and coordination are trained. Automatically also step length and step frequency are varied. As a tip for beginners, it is important to make sure where to step next. This requires concentration but is important to reduce the risk of injuries.
Running trails starting right at the Hotel Steiner

Towards mountain lakes, on rocky hiking trails, over green hills and past rocks. Running in the open terrain also trains the sense of orientation, and one thing is certain in Obertauern: Your route will always take you back to the village and the Hotel Steiner. The mountain landscape extends around the village like a bowl and the signposting of the trails will inform you about direction and duration to the next destination.
