Sport, festivals and entertainment on holiday on the Hochkönig

From well-attended sports events on the Hochkönig to the leisurely harvest festival in Salzburger Land: the mountain summer in the Hochkönig region is packed full with great events.

Exact dates for the summer 2017 are coming soon. Highlights for the 2016 summer and autumn in the Hochkönig region were:


Hochkeil Biking Summer

Bikers are invited to collect metres of altitude difference throughout the whole summer. Participants compete on set routes in the Hochkönig region in the three categories "road bike", "mountain bike" and "e-bike". The winners are awarded prizes at the Hochkeil Biking Summer Closing Celebration on 15 October 2016 at the Arthurhaus.



This trail running festival entails mastering an obstacle run on a route over mountain pastures, rocks and summits.


11th Hochkönig Fun Run

Traditional mountain run for individual runners, relays and Nordic walking.


2nd Hochkönig Herb Festival

Herbs are the star of this festival, be it in the form of treatments, headdresses, delicacies or stories. Celebrations take place on the Bürglalm after a herb bike together. The centre of attention is the highest herb mountain pasture market in the Alps with mountain herb products.



A pure sense of home and authentic folk music on rustic hill farms in Mühlbach, Dienten and Maria Alm.
