For leisure hikers and alpinists

Saalfelden's special geography makes the walking terrain very varied. Peter Wörgötter, much travelled but still very much a local resident of Saalfelden, has repeatedly recognised this. His expert opinion: 'Nestling between the Steinernes Meer Plateau, Grasberge and the High Tauern, a wide range of Alpine experiences are on offer here. And every vantage point has its own special features!'

Hiking routes in Salzburger Land

The gentle grassy slopes of the greywacke zone are ideal for leisurely mountain hikes. The Alpine summer is the best time to enjoy this peaceful experience. But there are other adventures: Experienced alpinists can climb the steep rock faces of the Steinernes Meer ranges to the north. And mountaineers will love the three-thousand metre peaks of the High Tauern (Grossglockner 3,798m, Grossvenediger 3,666m, Kitzsteinhorn 3,203m).
