This city, which reached its heyday in the Middle Ages, has lost none of its fascination. A true paradise for recreation during your holidays: vibrant history, warm hospitality, excellent cuisine, pristine nature. To the north the Dachstein, in the south the Radstädter Tauern, and between the two a medieval town.
With this as your starting point, a mountain world reveals itself that is quite beyond compare. If you make your way to the top of the 1800-meter Rossbrand – which, incidentally, can also be reached effortlessly in a car – you are treated to a panorama encompassing over 150 alpine peaks. Extending out from Radstadt is a network of clearly marked and well-maintained hiking routes. Radstadt is a meeting point for excursions to fascinating natural wonders such as Liechtenstein Gorge, giant ice caves and the Dachstein Glacier.
If you visit Radstadt, you experience a rich and storied history and discover fascinating geology. Everywhere you roam – in the back streets, town squares and buildings – you come face to face with witnesses to a tradition spanning countless centuries.
History & Recreation
Despite all the developments which have shaped this town, Radstadt proudly embraces its roots and its history. If you are well grounded in your own history, you remain true to who you really area. A motto here that couldn’t be more on the mark.

- mountain and children’s festivals,
- Harvest Festival,

all constantly keep the medieval history of this town alive and well.
Aside from hiking, cycling and golf, Radstadt has something to appeal to practically every sporting preference: the Alpine Outdoor Pool, 9 tennis courts, an indoor tennis center, two riding stables with arena and jumping course, mini golf, beach-volleyball court, summer “ice stock” and archery.
