The unknown Austria: Mühlviertel (Mill district) just is the opposite of mass tourism

The Mühlviertel (mill district) is a change-rich mountainous landscape with spicy air and great forest regions, romantic creeks and gorges, juicy meadows and high granite rocks. Exactly the ringht area for a in fact restful and individual vacation or also only for a few days recreation. The mill quarter lies in the middle of Europe, however, a little off the great streams of mass tourism. Correspondingly that famous touristical infrastruktur which already became a nightmare for many better known areas of Austria "is" missing there.

In the Mühlviertel on the other hand you find the almost non-touristic naturalness and a contemplativeness in an intact environment and nature. Here in the height of 725 meters is WEITERSFELDEN situated a small rural center with farmers, craftsmen . You reach the medieval district town FREISTADT by car in 20 minutes. Busconnections exist to the railway station in FREISTADT and to LINZ with its international airport. In the village you can buy all things of the daily requirement. There are post office , bank , Doctor and pubs and restaurants, a hotel indoor swimming pool with sauna, sport facilities, tennisground, heated open-air swimming pool, a golf course in 10 km distance and many kilometers of local and international hiking ways and courses for cross country skiing
