Hochkönig, the hiking paradise: mountain hiking in Austria

340 km of hiking trails in all levels of difficulty stretch around the Hochkönig and offer suitable tours for both leisurely hikers and mountaineers. You can explore the quality-certified hiking region from a local's perspective several times a week with our hotel's own hiking guide, for example with an impressive sunrise tour followed by an alpine breakfast. The Salzburger Almenweg on the other hand takes you to the most wonderful alpine huts and inns in the region that know how to impress with authenticity and delicious regional specialities.

Take a holiday at a hiking hotel in the Hochkönig region where you can enjoy the feeling of being in Salzburg's mountains to the full.

Climbing and mountaineering

With its 2,941 metres, the Hochkönig is one of the most magnificent and striking massifs in the Alps. The region enjoys a legendary reputation in particular for climbing on the Hochkönig. A rich variety of via ferrata and routes up to the very highest levels of difficulty make your climbing holiday on the Hochkönig in Austria a successful experience.
