But even more than just ski holidays, this traditional town of the Pinzgau region offers one of the most varied ranges of activities in the Alps. From biking, to high rope courses, to treetop paths and some of the highest peaks in in Austria, pretty much everyone will find an adventurous way to pass the time in Saalbach.
Activities For All
Including Kids With a name that screams out for tough hiking challenge, the Seven Summits of Saalbach Hinterglemm present some impressive views and sceneries, which are the richest reward at the end of your exhausting walk.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the Seven Summits are the Kitzbueheler Alps, with tops which are just as hard to reach as they are breath-taking.
