Hiking Holidays in Salzburger Land

Hiking, mountaineering & guided hikes near Kaprun

The Salzburg Alps are nowhere more beautiful than they are right here in the Hohe Tauern mountains of the Pinzgau region! Beneath radiant sunshine, across flower-strewn alpine meadows, through green forests and all the way up to the summit …. Hiking fans can look forward to a wide selection of routes, both on the Schmittenhöhe as well as the Kitzsteinhorn: including mountaintop pathways, glacier trails, nature paths and scenic walking tours. Many of these routes are easy to reach with the help of the mountain lifts, meaning you don’t necessarily have to be an outdoor athlete to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. Here amid the mountains of Kaprun, there is a hike for everyone regardless of condition!  

During high summer in Salzburg, around 1,800 alps and 550 mountain huts attract visitors with their regional specialties along with numerous musical and culinary events. Guided theme hikes, insights into local traditions and folk customs, as well as the ever-popular Almsommer Festival guarantee a variety-packed hiking vacation in Salzburger Land.

However, it isn’t just the mountains that attract hikers with an array of opportunities. Down in the valley as well, numerous hiking paths are waiting to be explored. Together with your whole family, enjoy a stroll around the lake or learn about famous personalities from Zell am See-Kaprun as you walk down a beautiful forest path.

Regardless of whether you decide on a hike in the mountains or in the valley, the Tauernhof, your hiker-friendly hotel in Kaprun, is the ideal base for all of your hiking tours.
