The perfect escape to Salzburg Land
When you think of a summer vacation in Austria, you envisage lush landscapes, glistening lakes and clear mountain air. In the Oberpinzgau region, this dream becomes reality. The Wildkogel Resorts lie at the entrance to the Hohe Tauern National Park, where you embark on outdoor adventures or just relax and get away from it all.
Everything is provided: an abundance of well-signposted hiking trails, running trails, mountain bike routes, natural bathing lakes and mountain lifts for easy access to the peaks.
The natural beauty of Salzburg Land
The Wildkogel Resorts lie at the centre of the village close to the local lift stations. During the summer season, the National Park Summercard will be available to you, which also works as your guest card, and provides you with free access to public transport throughout the Pinzgau region.
Favourite destinations in the region are the Kitzbühel Alps and the Grossvenediger mountain. National park attractions include prehistoric glaciers and the Krimml waterfalls. Guests who are keen to explore Salzburg city will be fascinated by Mozart’s birthplace with its magnificent baroque buildings and cultural treasures.
Must-sees in the Pinzgau region
Covering an expanse of 1,856 square kilometres, the Hohe Tauern National Park is one of the largest in Europe. Explore the breath-taking Alpine landscape in the Oberpinzgau region, stretching from Zell am See to Kaprun, either with all the family, with your partner or friends. This region makes for the perfect summer destination. The longest cycle path in Austria extends to 270 or 310 kilometres from Passau to Krimml, perfect for a sporting challenge. The Tauern cycle path, on the other hand, is ideally suited to family outings.
With a fall height of 380 metres, the Krimml waterfalls are the tallest in Austria. In the Hohe Tauern National Park you can admire this natural phenomenon. Don’t miss out on the Krimml Worlds of Water. Guests keen to experience one of the most beautiful valleys in the region should opt for a walk through the Habachtal. Emeralds discovered in the Habachtal even adorn the English Crown Jewels. A day’s hiking and biking give rise to both hunger and thirst, so it’s good to know that you can choose from 120 mountain huts serving traditional Salzburg delicacies.
The Hohe Tauern National Park provides a paradise for those who find happiness on a bike. Whether mountain biker or road cyclist, the terrain is so varied it will meet all your needs and preferences. Rental and service providers mean you don’t even have to bring your own equipment along.
