467,- per person in a double room Request offer Offer availability

Hiking along the Lainsitz is like taking a trip back in time. The trail along this river passes through Austria and the Czech Republic. It is parallel to the former border strip, which is largely untouched natural countryside because the Iron Curtain ran through the middle of it for decades.
