The Upper Austrian Pre-Alps are a mountain group of the Eastern Alps ( AVE 17b), which encompasses the area between the Trauntal ( Gmunden ) in the west and the Ennstal in the east, to Steyr in the north, which is customarily also divided into the Enns and Steyrtal Pre-Alps and the Salzkammergut Pre-Alps (separate around the Steyrtal ). From a political point of view, the area comprises the districts of Steyr-Land and Kirchdorf . Large parts are located in the Kalkalpen National Park .
