Walking holidays in the ‚home of the mountains’
Salzburg and the surrounding area ‚Salzburger Land’ may well be renowned for Mozart or the summer festivals. However just as popular are the mountains of the Austrian holiday region and many hiking enthusiasts spend their hiking holiday in the region of the Salzburger Land. The entire state is dotted with mountain peaks of any kind: There are hills in the Alpine foothills, karst plateaus in the Tennengebirge-mountain range, the distinctive ‚Steinernes Meer’(rocky sea)-mountains. People of Salzburg are also proud of Austria’s two highest mountains, Mount Großvenediger and Mount Großglockner. The holiday feeling in Salzburg is complete with heart-felt hospitality and delicious regional delicacies from local producers.
‚Hiking heaven’ in Salzburg
You often gain quite some altitude during a hiking tour in the Salzburg mountains. Countless peaks and alps await to be tackled by you. There are more than 7200 marked hiking paths and trails crossing the Salzburger Land. You can find tours with an altitude profile ranging between 500 and 3798 metres in altitude offering all levels of difficulty. Eurohike has devised nine routes out of the abundance of options, which reveal Salzburg from the best angle.
During a tour on the Salzalpensteig-path you walk along the trail of the salt between Lake Königssee and the enchanting little town Hallstatt. Advanced hikers with a very good fitness level climb up the peaks around ‚his majesty’, Mount Dachstein, on the Dachstein-high-altitude loop path. And aficionados experience what genuine Salzburg hospitality is all about during a panorama walking tour in the Zell am See district.
Alp-summer and farmers’ autumn in the Salzburger Land
Custom and traditions are deeply embedded in the ‚land of the moutains’, especially around Salzburg. During the entire year there are countless events such as markets and festivals taking place which delight locals just as much as tourists. Not least because of the treats, which are only available on a few special days. There are over 500 alps where guests are treated - in a characteristic manner - to home-made bread, cured ham and premium spirits. Numerous alps are only accessible on foot and are real insider tips. With Eurohike you never miss out on any special hidden gems.
During the farming autumn people present themselves as colourful as the leaves during this season. Traditional costums are a must at the harvest festivals and traditional music events! Hence it is not surprising that even during any hiking tour you may come across people dressed in ‚Lederhosen’.
