Holidays Roßleithen

Roßleithen is beautifully set in Upper Austria´s pristine Pyhrn-Priel Region. The borough of Roßleithen extends from the Sengsen Mountains to Warschneckstock Mountain and boasts one of the region’s most beautiful natural attractions, the source of River Pießling. It’s a about a 20 minutes’ walk from town and can easily be done by families with young children.

In the past there were several scythe smiths located along River Pießling. The Roßleithen Scythe Manufacture is the only one left in the Pyhrn-Eisenwurzen region and is well worth a visit. On the way to the source of the Pießling you will also see Stummer Mill which was built in 1882 and in operation until 1970. Guided tours of the mill can be arranged on request.

Animals lovers and children will appreciate the Enghagen Zoo & Leisure Park which offers over 400 animals, a slow train, pony riding and much more and makes for a great afternoon out.

The new Scythe Trail is beautifully maintained and suitable for families.

Roßleithen is true paradise for nature loves and those in search of peaceful relaxation.
