Hiking Holidays in Austria

Hohe Tauern National Park and Wildkogel—
Hiking Holidays in Salzburgerland

What do you think of when you hear “hiking holidays in Austria”?


  • Meadows and forests, mountains and lakes, hills and the Alps—”real mountains” with stunning views?
  • Hearty snacks in mountain huts and cosy inns?
  • Guided hikes and marked hiking trails?
  • Loads of fun in mountain refuges?
  • Bacon on bread and Kaiserschmarrn?

Hiking Holidays in Salzburg and Tirol


We think of hikes in the Kitzbühel Alps and on Wildkogel with children, parents and grandparents together as a family who spend their hiking holiday with us in Pinzgau.

… of climbs to the summits of Wildkogel, Steinkogel, Bramberger Zwölfer, Pinzgau Blick

… of cosy hours spent in mountain refuges: for example Steiner Alm, Enzianhütte, Alpenrose, Moaralm with its local flavour and Baumgartenalm in Mühlbach Valley

… of guided hikes through pristine nature in Hohe Tauern National Park with national park rangers.

…. of the flight of the eagle over the snow-covered peaks of the Alps in Salzburg, Tirol and Carinthia.

… of the cute marmots that cautiously stretch their heads up into the air.

… of ibexes and chamois that calmly stand on rocks and graze in nearly impassable areas.

… of the bold colours of Alpine flowers in summer and the magnificent view of a sea of peaks in autumn.

… of the learning trails with lots of pictures and information about our part of the Alps.

Book your holiday at the Smaragdhotel Tauernblick

We think of leisurely hikes to our mountain lake at 1,600 m above sea level with our in-house hiking guides Günter, who is also the hotel owner, and Andrea.

… of the joy of children after they have caught a fish, which we prepare in the hotel’s kitchen.

… of hikes that start directly at the hotel, for example the Emerald Trail to Habach Valley, where we dig for emeralds.

… of evenings in the hotel lobby when we arrange tours with the hiking guides and our guests.


Our favourite way to experience Salzburgerland is by hiking and we would be happy to provide you with recommendations for excursions in Salzburgerland and Tirol and rent out hiking gear!
