Resort Overview

For piste fun

Ski in/Ski out in the Wildkogel Arena

The Wildkogel Arena is situated in the backyard of the Wildkogel Resorts, ready to welcome skiers of all levels. The family-friendly slopes guarantee amazing skiing for all ages. Keen skiers who are looking for a bit of a challenge and racing fun should explore the Kitzbühel slopes and Zillertal Arena, only a short car ride from the Wildkogel Resorts. If the internationally acclaimed slopes of these areas still don’t satisfy your thirst for snow, a 50-minute drive takes you to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier with guaranteed snow. Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, one of Austria’s three largest combined ski areas, is large enough to keep you happy for weeks.

For action freaks

14 kilometres of pure joy in Bramberg am Wildkogel

Providing 14 kilometres of pure sliding fun, the Bramberg am Wildkogel toboggan run proudly presents itself as the world’s longest toboggan run. It is illuminated until 22:00, guaranteeing some excellent night-time fun. Guests can rent their toboggans and take them on the gondolas of the Neukirchen or Bramberg lifts, conveniently whisking them to the starting point of their adventure. Gather at the Smaragdbahn lift station and enjoy tobogganing with all the family.

For summit hunters

Ski tours in the Kitzbühel Alps

If you think of alpine adventure when touring, you will find countless possibilities for your holiday in the Pinzgau. Certified mountain and ski guides show you the most beautiful spots and take you safely through the terrain. Get tour tips from us at the resort!

  • Pinzgau Grass Mountains & Hohe Tauern
  • Spring classics: Hoher Sonnblick, Hocharn or Großvenediger
  • Tip for beginner tours: Kitzbüheler Alpen & Gerlosplatte

If you want to gain your first ski touring experience in open terrain, the Kitzbühel Alps are the place to go. The Gerlosplatte in the Zillertal Arena is also ideal for the first tours. The landscape experience is wonderful, although the slopes are fairly flat and therefore suitable for beginners. You can ski down comfortably on the groomed slopes. 

For nature lovers

Snowshoeing in the National Park

A winter hike in our region is pure relaxation and nature experience. Glaciers and mountain peaks accompany you as a constant backdrop as you circle lakes and roam through forests. 

You will find all kinds of wonderful trails to conquer during your holiday in Pinzgau, from cosy promenades in the valley to panoramic paths not far from the various huts and alpine pastures. Guided tours with wonderful views are offered, for example, by the National Park Rangers - in the Hollersbach Valley, in the Sulzbach Valleys and in the Stubach Valley. The extensive programme caters for both beginners and experienced hikers. A highlight in the truest sense of the word is the summit of the Hohe Sonnblick (3,106 m), where Europe's highest weather station is installed.

For kilometre collectors

Cross-country ski trails with panorama

In addition to sporty cross-country trails, the Oberpinzgau and its surroundings also offer leisurely tours that focus on experiencing nature and the views of the region's mountain peaks. The variously combinable trails of the surrounding villages make up a network of 107 kilometres of cross-country trails

Tip: The "Pinzga Loipe" runs through the entire Salzach Valley from Krimml to Mittersill and Zell am See.

For Pirouette Turners

Ice skating in Bramberg

Ice skating is an entertaining activity in the fresh air that is a lot of fun. Especially with children, a visit to the ice rink is a must on any winter holiday! There are floodlit ice rinks in Bramberg as well as in Neukirchen. You can hire ice skates on site.
