Summer holidays in Austria from its active side

What could be nicer than being in the fresh air all day and experiencing new adventures every day? Summer holidays in Austria stand for holidays in the heart of the mountains – where a new experience awaits you around every corner. And on top of that, we have a diverse summer program at the Oberschwarzach, from yoga to horseback riding to guided hikes.

Reiterkogel, west summit, Schattberg ... no matter where you land: it will definitely be fantastic! The Saalbach Hinterglemm mountain railways take you to the highest heights and back to the valley in no time at all. With the summer JOKER CARD, which is already included in your summer holiday in Austria at the Oberschwarzach, you can travel the area for free. You can simply take your mountain bike or stroller with you as the bike transport is included twice a day, and the stroller is always free. This makes the region around our hotel in Hinterglemm not only a paradise for hikers, but also for mountain bikers, downhillers and families.

Summer holiday in Austria bonus point: it is only a few meters from the Hotel Oberschwarzach in Hinterglemm to the nearest cable car.
