Community Gaming


The market Gaming is located at 430 m above sea level on an old trade route, which once led from the Styrian Erzberg over the Grubberg into the Alpine foothills. The popular summer resort is surrounded by the first "Thousanders" of the Styrian-Lower Austrian Limestone Alps, the Zürner (1,096 m), the Föllbaumberg (1,014 m) and the Schwarzenberg (1,049 m). Due to the nearby Ötscher, the former Charterhouse Gaming, the Iron Road of Lower Austria and the Ötscher-Tormäuer Nature Park, the community has become a popular destination for excursions.

This also includes the Ötscher stalactite cave, accessible via an adventure trail, and the Ötscherland Express museum train. The sports offer in Gaming includes hiking, swimming, mini golf, tennis and cycling as well as mountain biking, inline skating, beach volleyball and Nordic walking. Especially interesting for winter sports enthusiasts: the distances to the skiing areas of the Ybbstal Alps, such as the Ötscher or the Hochkar, are short starting from Gaming.

As one of the nine cadastral communities of the Gaming municipality, Lackenhof am Ötscher also belongs to the largest market municipality in the country in terms of area, which extends from Kienberg to Zellerrain - including Ötscher - with 244 km². In recent years, Gaming has also become an insider's tip for beer lovers. In addition to the much-visited brewery Bruckner's Bierwelt, the Kartause Gaming also offers home-brewed Kartäuserbräu for tasting and to accompany in the restaurant. The newest attraction is the GeBIERgsweg Gaming with a stop at the always well-filled beer fountain.
