European Winter Walking Days 2022

The Tirol Werbung, in cooperation with the Osttirol Tourismusverband and ERA, organised  the wonderful European Winter Walking Days 2022 in Kartitsch (Osttirol). Despite the Covid restrictions, 41 registered walkers (with host walkers about 50 pers.) of all ages (from 5 years old to seniors) participated from 10 – 13 March 2022 in long and short programmes prepared in the Kartitsch valley with alternative excursions to interesting neighbouring places. The spring came to the Southern hillsides, but there was still snow in the majority of valley and the top of hills as well. The social evenings were held in typical Tyrolean atmosphere in cosy restaurants, accompanied by the local music and food.
All guests appreciated the friendly and generous welcome provided by the Osttirol Tourismusverband, directed by Bernhard Pichler. Also the kindness from the accommodation and restaurants hosts in the valley who made everyone feel very welcome. Kartitsch is a real winter walking village with perfectly maintained trails in the different side-valleys or on the top of the local “hill” Dorfberg (2,100 m above sea level) with a beautiful 360° view to the Alps. All participants now have lovely memories and can recommend this corner of Austria to visit.

European Winter Walking Days 2023


The European Winter Walking Days will also continue in 2023. Looking forward to see you in the PillerseeTal in Kitzbüheler Alpen (Tirol, Austria). Please save the date 9 – 12 March 2023.

2022 ERA spring webinar

On 8 April 2022, the ERA Board will organise the ERA spring webinar (originally the biannual meeting), with the actual topic: “Climate changes and their influence on ERA”. What is the real situation in different corners of Europe, how are our member organisations trying to solve the situation and how can we, every walker, support the better climate in our home location? To find some answers and be part of the debate, please register for the webinar here. Your experiences with climate changes are welcomed!

Stop the war in Ukraine

ERA condemns the war in Ukraine, and we call for an immediate end of the war.
