The history of 'Hiking Villages'
The genesis of the Austrian Hiking Villages association!
“Austria’s Hiking Villages” association was founded under the name “Village holiday in Austria” in 1991, with the aim being to support and promote tourism with environmental aspirations in accordance with strictly selected criteria, including a traditional village character, environmental pollution limits and minimum measures, as well as socio-economic limits. Upon winning the “Tourism For Tomorrow Awards 1993″ the initiative gained international recognition.
In the course of time, the group engaged with greater intensity with the theme of hiking and in 1998 became particularly established with its focus on this activity. Along with developing contemporary hiking offers and exchanging experiences, the aim was to design valuable information material, provide assistance and information to people interested in hiking, about the multifaceted hiking landscape.
