A sporty and dynamic stay at the four-star hotel
Experiencing pure mountain joy on a hike. Admiring the breathtaking views during a bike tour. Getting your blood pumping while swimming in a crystal-clear lake.

A multifaceted summer for sports enthusiasts
Trail running, mountain biking, hiking or paragliding: Salzburg’s mountains offer plenty of variety for action-packed fun. The city’s four landmark mountains (Untersberg, Gaisberg, Kapuzinerberg and Mönchsberg) are just a few of the options for outdoor activities in and around Salzburg. There are also several summer sports resorts in the Salzburger Land region. For extended bike tours, we recommend the neighbouring Berchtesgadener Land region in Bavaria. Hikers should definitely check out the area surrounding Filzmoos.
By the way: Many great hiking and biking routes start right outside the hotel’s doorstep. The team alongside host family Nitzlnader will be happy to share some insider’s tips with you. In addition, you can quickly reach the Lake District from Wals. Perfect for showcasing your skills at stand-up paddling or water skiing! Crisp mountain air, lush green meadows and breathtaking views will turn every kind of sport into a real summer highlight.
Listen up, action fans: One of the absolute must-tries in the city of Mozart is paragliding on Gaisberg, one of Salzburg’s landmark mountains. Alone or as part of a tandem, you’ll be gliding down into the valley while enjoying a phenomenal view of the city.
