Out of the city and into the natural enjoyment awaiting you on the alpine pastures of Pinzgauer Saalachtal!
Lush green meadows, romantic mountain tarns, picturesque forests and gentle ridgelines set against the backdrop of the imposing rugged peaks of the Limestone Alps - all of this and more awaits you in the towns of Saalbach Hinterglemm, Saalfelden, Leogang, Maria Alm, Maishofen, Viehhofen, Lofer, St. Martin, Weissbach and Unken.
Accompanied by a breathtaking mountain panorama, Mother Nature strikes up a true concert for hikers: the humming of the bees and the twitter of birds combines with the cheerful babbling of a mountain stream and the jangle of the cowbells to create a lighthearted melody, all the while climbing higher and higher with every step you take. It’s also worth keeping your eyes up, since golden eagles and vultures often show themselves against the blue sky and curious chamois rest on the sun-baked rocks.
When you are ready to pause for a while and rest those tired calf muscles, the 550 traditional mountain huts and chalets of SalzburgerLand invite you to stop in for a refreshment break. Many of these have earned the distinction as an “Alpine Summer Hut”, offering both authentic hospitality as well as high-quality regional products: Crispy fresh farmhouse bread with freshly churned butter and herbs, full-flavored cheese and bacon, and perhaps other Pinzgau specialties.

A ‘swinging’ challenge between the grassy and rocky mountains
In Saalfelden Leogang you can swing your club on two golf courses at once. For more than two decades now, the two 18-hole golf courses have been counted among the most pivotal and popular throughout the province of Salzburg. Both courses afford a view of unsurpassed beauty out over the mountains of the Steinernes Meer, the Leoganger Steinberge and the Hochkönig. The Urslautal Golf Club is a largely flat course with wide fairways and
foxy doglegs. With 80 tees the driving range ranks among the largest in Austria. The River Saalach runs through the Brandlhof Golf Club and has to be crossed six times in total. There is a six-hole putting green available for players without a proficiency certificate, in addition to a driving range and a practice area. As an added bonus, dogs are allowed to accompany their masters onto the golf course. There are two associated golf academies to bring all beginners up to par in next to no time, even giving many a pro some handy tips for the perfect tee shot. Within just a 70km radius golfers will
also find a further 15 golf coures both exacting and enticing. Both the club restaurants and golf partner hotels lend themselves to a
post-putting powwow to review the best shots.
Right on the green sits the Hotel Gut Brandlhof, the four-star and superior golf hotels hotel just a few swings of the golf club away.
Saalfelden Leogang stands out as one of the largest and most popular hiking regions in Austria. Over 400 kilometres of ideally groomed hiking trails stretch between craggy limestone cliffs and gentle grasscovered mountains.
