Relaxation or activity - Annaberg offers both. The inns, guesthouses and farms are personal, family-friendly and have a very comfortable atmosphere.
Path and destination of the pilgrims
For more than 900 years Annaberg is one of the most important destinations of pilgrimage along the Via Sacra, the holy street to Mariazell. The "Kreuzweg" ("cross path"), which was created according to the inheritance of the famous local artist Prof. Sepp Gamsjäger with e-mail boards, is also very popular.
Challenging heights, wonderful view and fascinating gorges.
A top-tour - also for families - leads you through the well-known Ötscher mountain rifts in the natural park Ötscher-Tormäuer. Special destinations are the Tirolerkogel and the Hennesteck heights.
These horses have been bred in Annaberg for 80 years. There are riding stables and farms, which offer rides or courses for all ages. In summer there are some riding camps for children. Experienced horse riders can ride through nature on well-marked paths.
