Hiking & mountain climbing

On the sunny side of Salzburg's alpine summer

You can still find them: these small, idyllic alpine huts with gurgling water troughs and wonky walls. Even from far away you can smell the aroma of freshly-baked farmers' doughnuts, which are served with tangy lemon balm syrup. In the Salzburger Sportwelt the alpine huts hark back to bygone time. Your everyday life fades into the distance in in a jiffy. Hiking is sure to be pleasurable experience - more than 1,000 km of signposted paths lead through the seven resorts - Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl, St.Johann, Radstadt, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Eben, Filzmoos - including the Salzburger Almenweg. There are 19 certified alpine summer huts in the region and there's always the option to head on up higher - from the alpine meadows into rocky terrain and on to the peaks. Whether on your own or accompanied by a guide - happiness is along the way - and leads steadily uphill.

guided hikes in the resorts

Those not wishing to hike alone and who prefer to join a group, have the opportunity to do so in all holiday resorts. Enquire at the Tourist Offices about the guided hikes on offer.
Most of these tours are also suitable for families.
