Bike and Hike to the Lackenkogel

The best of both worlds for outdoor enthusiasts

The Lackenkogel (2051 m) towers high above Flachau. It is one of the most striking mountains in the Radstädter Tauern and offers a fantastic all-round view. It is perfect for a combination of bike and hike.

Huts

Treat yourself at the end of a hike or take a break before the final stretch: re-energise and enjoy traditional Austrian cuisine at the Flachau huts and mountain inns. Sausage, cheese, bacon, homemade bread and the obligatory doughnuts... alpine snacks in Flachau are quite simply delicious.
