Pure mountain pleasure

Our hiking service

We love nature and know our mountain world like the back of our hand. We as hosts and hiking pros give you professional and personal advice. Hiking means getting to know yourself better, becoming curious, experiencing high emotions and feeling respect for the greatness of nature.

During 5-7 guided hikes per week we show you our favorite places and share our knowledge of nature with you. Our hiking guides draw your attention to the small details in nature, take care of the group, provide advice and lots of information.



Of course, you can also explore the mountains and nature on your own. But it has many benefits when you go on your path with hiking guides.

To guarantee you the best conditions and to prepare you optimally for your hiking experience, we at the Wanderhotel Gassner also rely on our hiking guide Hans-Peter Gassner and Monika and a comprehensive Packing list.

Hans-Peter Gassner

Hiking guide and chief of the hotel

“One or two hikes a week bring me ever closer to my beloved mountains. They are the ideal balance to work in the kitchen. These rather challenging tours take me to special places, mountain lakes and peaks.

„In die Berg bin i gern!“ – the local mountains are familiar to me as a nature lover and hunter since my childhood. I would like to share this feeling with my guests!”

Hotel Gassner - Hiking service

Monika Büsching

Hiking guide “I have enjoyed being out in nature since I was a child. I grew up on a farm in Neukirchen am Großvenediger. In 2014 I did the training to become a mountain hiking guide. Now I have turned my hobby into my profession and look forward to many fellow hikers and fun times in summer and winter. After all, mountains connect people.”
