Viehhofen Activity Tips

Many attractions in the village

Although Viehhofen is a relatively small resort, you will have no problem in finding a programme to fill a whole week for the whole family. There is so much to discover and experience in the village.

Stop for a break at the Hecherhütte

Whether by foot, bike or car, or in winter with the skis - a stop at the Hecherhütte is always a treat. Sit on the sun terrace and enjoy the magnificent mountain views. Treat yourself to something tasty to eat and don’t forget to take a look in the hut itself – where you will find many requisite from days gone by.

Summer tip: Restaurant guests are able to use the swimming pool in summer. Bath high above the rooftops of Viehhofen, surrounded by blooming Alpine pastures - this is a truly unique experience.

Hike to the Niederbrand Chapel

Not to be missed, a stunning circular hike to the historic Niederbrand chapel. From the tennis courts, continue a few metres along the Glemmerstraße (in the direction of Maishofen), then turn left onto a small forest path in the direction of the Niederbrand chapel. Continue along the path through the shady forest, where the well-maintained route winds up towards a clearing, where the small Niederbrand chapel stands. Take in the views and enjoy a few peaceful moments. Continue on the hiking trail, pass the old farm and continue across the mountains pastures to the Alpengasthof Stiegernigg. Take the same route back to the village.
