The Nature Cinema: Better than Netflix & Chill

Experience unique mountain moments - that's possible at the Asitz, the mountain of the senses in Leogang. Fortunately, Leogang's local mountain is only a gondola ride away. At the top, hikers and nature lovers can expect nature-related installations that make it possible to discover and experience nature in a whole new way. Welcome to the nature cinema!

This time the way is not the goal

After a gondola ride with the Asitz or Steinberg cable car to the mountain station, you have already arrived at the starting point of your hike to the nature cinema. Many roads lead not only to Rome, but also to the nature cinema. Either you decide for the game hiking trail including the brand new Leo puzzle hunt (Psst: There's a family weekend in Saalfelden Leogang to win!) or for the hike over the Asitz summit. But no matter which path becomes yours, at the end the nature cinema awaits you: wooden installations built in harmony with nature. Comfortable wooden loungers and hammocks invite you to linger and marvel. Because in front of you stretches nothing but the most beautiful nature - no matter what the weather, no matter what time of day or season.

Roll the film!

Sit back and enjoy, pause, take a breath, leave everyday life behind. All this works wonderfully in the nature cinema. No wonder with this view. On the left, the imposing Leoganger Steinberge mountains stretch out, straight ahead the limestone massif of the Steinernes Meer. On the right, you can see the gentle grassy mountains. Each season has its own play of colors: in spring the lush green of the alpine meadows and the still snow-covered Steinberge, in summer the colorful world of alpine flowers and the dark green of the conifers, in autumn the endless clarity of the air and the gray mountains. And again and again the kitschy bright blue or the mystical cloudy sky. This film really meets every taste. The only thing missing is the popcorn!

Ready for the island

Another highlight on the Asitz are the TONspuren islands on the hiking trail from the mountain station to the summit cross of the Asitz. The five small wooden huts are not only the ideal place for a snack break. Loudspeakers are hidden in the headboards of the wooden loungers and with the control on the edge of the lounger there is a play button, which we hereby highly recommend you to press. Each island plays a different TONspuren concert from the previous year. Enjoy the short break, let yourself be carried away by the music and into another world for a short while.

Strong Instagram Game

"Pic or it didn't happen!" You definitely won't have a problem with that. These are our three favorite photo spots on the Asitz:
