    More information



The community of Gai is located 600 m above sea level between Liesing- and Vordernberg valley beneath the mighty Reiting massif and combines pure country life, customs and traditions with 21st century amenities. The whole area of Gai covers about 62 km² and consists of the settlements Edling, Edling-Seizerstraße, Gai, Gausendorf, Gimplach, Gimplach-Sternsiedlung, Gössgraben, Kurzheim, Oberdorf, Putzenberg, Schardorf, Töllach, Untergimplach, Unterkurzheim and Windischbühel.

First settlements in Gai took place in medieval times. The communities’ development was influenced substantially by the history of Trofaiach, former center for iron processing and dealing. Gai, as we know it today, was built in 1848, when the cadastral communities Gai, Schardorf, Gimplach and Gössgraben were combined into one political municipality.

Beautiful meadows, surrounded by lovely forests and impressive mountains – the wonderful landscapes and friendly people ensure that visitors can enjoy relaxing holidays apart from the worries of daily life. Those who would like to do some sports can take one of the innumerous walking and hiking trails or play golf on the 18- hole golf course at the foot of the Reiting. Visitors who would like to relax in a comfortable wellness-oasis will prefer the country hotel Reitingblick where various types of saunas including an infrared cabin, a steam bath and a whirlpool guarantee harmonizing experiences for body and mind.

Sports in Gai

Golfplatz GaiStyrian Mountain Golf Reiting

The Styrian Mountain Golf Course Reiting is rightly said to be one of the most beautifully located courses of Austria. The golf course has a surface area of 80 hectares and is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced golfers. The selective, varied 18-hole championship course fascinates by wide, well-kept fairways with attractive bunkers, large, hilly greens and demanding water hazards.


Blumenberg ReitingStarting point for hiking trails

The Reiting massif is located in the south of the Eisenerzer Alps and consists of four summits - Gößeck (2,214 m), Grieskogel (2,148 m), Kahlwandspitze (2,049 m) and Klauen (1,849 m) – twenty desolate ditches and steep slopes. Beginning in the imperial era, the mountain was appreciated for its wild beauty and the richness of flora and fauna. A marked trail from Schardorf leads to the summit of Gößeck. Other routs to the top start in Kammern and Mautern.
