In the mid-1700s religious refugees from Gosau in Upper Austria explored a wilderness beyond the Hell’s Canyon (Höllental) as contracted lumberjacks and found a new home.
This is how the story of Nasswald as a settlement began, which still resonates deeply in this small and uniquely historical town. Dive into a world of hardship, uncertainty and great accomplishments and learn how Rax King Georg Hubmer made it from rags to riches in the forests of the Rax and Schneeberg country.
Find out about the diverse and complex geopolitical transformations Nasswald experienced in its short but thrilling history and how Nasswald maintained its pioneering spirit, lumberjack profession and communal traditions until present-day.
As one of the smallest towns in Austria surrounded by miles and miles of pristine and protected forest lands, Nasswald is host to a cultural and natural magic that has gotten rare in our connected and modern world.
Come, experience and see Nasswald from an ethnohistorical perspective that otherwise remains barely touched upon by most visitors. The tour will be closed with a visit of the Hubmer Gedächtnisstätte, Naßwald’s ethnographic museum. For a small donation historic tools, machines, mechanisms, models of dams, tunnels, log slides, historic ways of building and insider information about local histories, ways of life and self-subsistence in Naßwald valley from the beginnings to present day can be inspected.

The tour will be followed by a two hour guided round trip hike to either the Hubmer Alm and Vista Point, Heufuss and Wallner Alm or the Kuhsteig over the Naßbachkamm and back.

For this medium walking tour no prior hiking experience is required.
