The diverse nature in Saalfelden Leogang is something to behold: The mighty sight of the Steinernes Meer (rocky sea), the lush alpine meadows or the omnipresent panorama of the Leogang Mountains. However, the terrain here is not entirely steep. In addition to the obligatory summit climbs, there are leisurely family hikes and panoramic trails that are easy to reach by cable car. You will also be impressed by the warmth of the hosts and the delicious Pinzgau specialties when you stop for a bite to eat at a restaurant in a town or in one of the mountain huts. This is a perfect area for those who want to explore this beautiful part of the Alps on foot.

In this Collection, we’ve put together eight Tours comprising six different types of hikes. From a leisurely three-kilometer (1.8 mile) walk on easy trails and over gentle grassy hills to a steep summit hike which requires surefootedness to bring you up to 1,400 metres (4,600 feet) – everything is included.

For alpine hikers, we have prepared a Tour to the Passauer Hütte and the Riemannhütte mountain inns, each with a challenging profile and limitless far-reaching views. If the panoramas are more important to you than alpine challenges then the Saalachtaler Höhenweg (Sallach Valley Ridgeway) is an ideal choice. If you like to explore, check out the short hike to the Birnbach Glacier, the lowest glacier in Central Europe. If you are travelling with children or love storytelling, we recommend discovering the beautifully located alpine pastures where you find refreshments and all kinds of exciting things for the kids. We also introduce you to the legend of the Miller’s Fox (Müllerfuchs).

Whatever type of hiker you are, you will find a world full of spectacular nature, sporting challenges and leisurely relaxation. With the famous Steinernes Meer plateau ahead and the many highlights that this region has to offer, you’ll get your money’s worth here.

    The destination of the hike doesn't really matter, because it's about the stories that you can tell. If you think so, then the hike to the Müllerfuchs is just right for you. The story features everything that a good film needs: a villain, a hero, an animal and almost a happy ending. The easy hike is
