Beats everything

Hiking holiday in Salzburg

The Salzburger Land – and especially Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn – is an outdoor paradise for the whole family and one of the most popular regions for hiking holidays in Austria. More than 400 km of well-marked hiking trails surround our hotel in Hinterglemm. These include easy family hikes, panoramic trails with a view to fall in love with, exciting themed trails, but also challenging hikes to the highest peaks in Salzburg's Glemmtal. With the help of the Saalbach-Hinterglemm mountain railways you can discover nature on the mountain in all its beauty and diversity – every day again without much effort. For refreshment in between, more than 40 mountain huts and pastures provide hungry and thirsty hikers with delicacies from the Salzburg kitchen.

Another Tip: With the JOKER CARD which is already included in your hiking holiday at the Oberschwarzach, you can use the Saalbach mountain railways free of charge.

Diversity of hiking in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

Delightful hiking

With big steps towards the summit or just a leisurely hike through the Salzburg mountains: We will take you to the most beautiful places around Saalbach. In our hotel we offer you a diverse hiking and active program. In order to meet all requirements our offer is divided into three levels of difficulty: easy, medium and difficult.

The easy hikes include for example the popular valley head tour called Talschlussrunde or tours that we manage with the help of the mountain railways. The moderately difficult hikes not only lead us to summits with great views, but also to several charming alpine pastures, which can be found all over the Salzburger Land. For the difficult tours we also like to go further and climb the most beautiful peaks around the area of Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. Up there in the mountains, where you are a whole lot closer to heaven, the far-reaching views really invite you to marvel.

You are very welcome to join our guided hikes – or you can go out on your own and explore Austria's Alps along the numerous marked trails.

Hiking holiday for families

Hiking with children becomes a pure nature experience in Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Many easy and mostly even buggy or pram friendly hike trails run through the entire Salzburger Glemmtal: sometimes high up on the mountain, sometimes comfortably in the valley.

The head of the valley (Talschluss) in Hinterglemm, the Kodok mountain at the Reiterkogel or Montelino's adventure trail are particularly noteworthy.

When it comes to alpine activities, a ride in the gondola is always a highlight for little hikers.
