Holiday in winter & spring
Holidaying in Salzburg’s Pinzgau region
In winter, families can enjoy a comprehensive leisure programme in Saalfelden and the surrounding region consisting of kids’ ski lifts, ski courses, ice skating on the lake, bathing in the family thermal spa area, a show mine, climbing hall, cinema, Advent markets and much more. The remote location of the Oberhasling baby and kids’ farm provides children and young people with the opportunity to let off steam safely in the snow, organise snowball fights and build snowmen or the like.
For sporty holiday guests, Saalfelden is the perfect place for an active winter holiday. The ‘Nordic Park Saalfelden’ is home to over 150 km of cross-country trails for classic and skating cross-country skiers along with guaranteed snow thanks to the artificial snow-making facilities, evening cross-country skiing on a floodlit slope, a snow and fun park, a natural ice rink on the Ritzensee lake and winter footpaths covering many kilometres.
Benefits for you at the Oberhasling organic farm: the cross-country trail runs straight past the farm – simply step straight from our farm onto the extensive cross-country network.
Saalfelden is also situated at the heart of one of the most beautiful and best-known ski resorts in the Alps. Whether the ‘Ski Circus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn’, the ‘Hochkönig’ ski resort, the ‘Schmitten’ ski resort or the ‘Kitzsteinhorn’ glacier ski resort – all of these ski resorts can be found within a 10-25 minute drive. Families love the small ‘ ‘Hinterreit’ family ski resort in Saalfelden, away from the usual hustle and bustle on the pistes.
Sports fans can also put their fitness to the test in winter with sledging, snowtubing, riding, paragliding, ski touring, archery, ice skating, curling, snowshoe walking and much more.
And if you prefer the peace and quiet, you can enjoy a leisurely winter walk or horse-drawn sledge ride through Pinzgau’s wintery wonderland on your holiday. You can also soak up some sunshine on the terrace of a ski lodge or cosy café in the town.
For culture vultures, the region plays host to many customary events and traditional festivals. Concerts invite visitors to savour music while museums are a welcome place to visit when there is a lack of sunshine or snow.
Not forgetting: sampling the ‘Pinzgau cuisine’ is a must on any holiday in Saalfelden, i.e. the regional treats served at the ski lodges, traditional guesthouses and restaurants – only then is a holiday in Pinzgau ‘complete’.
