Hinteralm (summit)

Mountain summit, Scenic lookout


The 1,313-meter Hinteralm is the highest point in Lilienfeld and, like the Muckenkogel, is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in Lower Austria. The view extends to the north over the Danube valley, to the south far into the Alps.

Location: Mostviertel, district Lilienfeld, Gutensteiner Alps

Lilienfeld is only an hour's drive away from Vienna. Numerous hiking trails up to alpine climbs are offered to nature lovers here. The alpine region around the Muckenkogel is accessed by the Lilienfeld chairlift.

Directly at the summit of the Hinteralm is the Traisner Hut, which is about 100 years old and invites you to stop in!

Opening hours: Open all year round (Monday day off).

In winter the Hinteralm/Traisnerhütte is the starting point for ski tours, in summer for extended hikes.
