Do you love the silence outdoors, relaxation by rippling water and are keen on angling? Anglers can find the ideal spots for their hobby just behind the Hotel Mitterwirt on Dienten's stream or at the nearby Salzach. You can have your fresh catch prepared by the kitchen team on request.

Good opportunities for angling enthusiasts on the Hochkönig

Fishing has played an important role since the Stone Age and is very popular with people of all ages. Thanks to the different possibilities for angling, this recreational activity never gets boring. You fish surrounded by tranquil nature in the midst of forests and meadows in the three holiday resorts on the Hochkönig.

The Dienten stream flows past just behind the Hotel Mitterwirt and at 10 kilometres long in total is ideal for angling. The Dienten stream with its tributaries is a clear, fast flowing mountain stream that has a superb stock of char and trout, all the way to the Salzach. You can get to the Salzach in about 10 minutes by car. The Salzach's unspoilt stretch of shallow water is also ideal for fly fishing.
