Hikes with dogs

Get out of the hotel and go for a walk. You can reach many dog miles from the hotel, great walks along the river Enns, through the Talbach to Rohrmoos and the dog meadow is also not far away.


Summer and winter, our dogs refresh themselves in the Enns, in the Talbach or in one of our bathing lakes.

Dogs on a leash are allowed on the lawn at the following bathing lakes, but not in the water!

If your dog also wants to go into the cool water, there are countless small rivulets in the region, where you can certainly find a place to cool off.
