St. Georgen am Walde is the place you are looking for to experience a relaxing horseback riding and hiking holiday.
An extensive network of riding trails invites enthusiastic horseback riders to head for scenic ride-outs to the lovely surroundings of Mühlviertel Alm and Danube Land-Strudengau Area.
In our Horseback Riding Center you can saddle up at any weather, either to try one of the special Iceland Horses or to experience the American Wild West of the pioneer days at Saint George Ranch.
Those who don´t want to draw in the reins themselves, may explore the charming surroundings on a romantic carriage ride.
This huge Hiker´s Paradise with 111 kilometers of trails lends itself to outstanding hiking amidst romantic dales and secluded deciduous and coniferous forests. Your paths may lead up hills with spectacular views - atop Burgstall Hill, for example, with 948 meters the district´s highest elevation, and many more interesting sights.
Various trailside resting places invite hikers to a refreshing break where they can gather strength for the rest of the trip.
Those who not only want to enjoy but actually explore nature will find information on the area´s fauna and flora on the Kranzberg Nature Trail.
In case you are getting hot, take a refreshing dip in one of the magnificent nature ponds.
Restaurants and inns will spoil you with local delicacies. For a perfect jovial rustic gathering the Sterzhütte Hut is the place to go!
Visitors may actually participate in traditional celebrations and club events, which enables them to understand local customs better.
Visitors are assured of a consistently warm welcome by the friendly residents. The citizens of St. Georgen have very close ties to their home but at the same time are quite open-minded. This liberal attitude is further encouraged by the fact that St. Georgen is a member of the European Town Partnership Program "Linden greets Linden" (Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium).
