Your summer holiday & hiking holiday in Obertauern
Family holidays, hiking, mountain biking, etc. “on the top” at Salzburger Land
This summer we are open between 28.7.2022 – 4.9.2022!
When 100 kilometres of hiking trails lie before you. When there are 20 alpine pastures waiting to be visited. When impressive summits want to be explored. When cableways make hiking easier. When mountain skyvers make your descent from the mountain an unforgettable experience. When bikers just can’t get enough. When golf courses are easy to get to. When fishing, horse-riding, and carriage rides available at any time. And when all of this happens in pristine natural environments emedded in impressive mountains.
That’s when you have arrived way up there – for your summer holidays in Salzburgerland. Your summer holidays in Obertauern. The Salzburger mountains inspire the young and the old alike – guests and locals just as much as connoisseurs and daredevils. Obertauern has something for everybody.

Family holidays and holidays with dogs in Obertauern
In Obertauern families will find a genuine paradise in the summer. It is simply not possible for kids to get bored around here. A petting zoo, wildlife park and horse-riding just a few of the many activities that await you and your family in this region!
The pristine Alpine pasture of the Gnadenalm is set amidst the magnificent panorama of the Radstädter Tauern mountains far away from traffic noise. It almost seems as if time stands still here. “Alles Alm” provides insights into the tough yet happy lives of the people here at the Gnadenalm Alpine pasture, both from times long past and today.
On 2 wheels: mountainskyver, mountain biking or motorcycling
What is a Mountain Skyver? A mountain skiver is simply THE latest summer mountain sport. And THE opportunity to have a real adventure on your way down after a great mountain hike. Whereas others have to walk to their car after their hike through alpine pastures and head back to the valley, Mountain Skyver riders have a lot more fun on their journey back down.
Anyone who has been out and about on a mountainbike in the mountains knows what freedom is. Pedalling ‘up there’ makes your heart beat faster, as beads of sweat drip on to the ground. As soon as you have reached the top, you can feel the joy an satisfaction. You are proud of your own achievement, which is rewarded with a unique panoramic view of mountains, something that can only be seen in Obertauern. During your descent you enjoy a feeling of total freedom. When the natural surroundings whistle past you left and right, the sun is shining on your back, and the air flow makes you feel like you are flying – an unforgettable experience.
At Sport Gefäll in Obertauern you can rent mountain bikes and e-mountain bikes!
Are you looking for a special challenge? 123 + 13 kilometres along glistening mountain lakes, lush alpine pastures, rustic mountain lodges, and the summit crosses of the province of Salzburg–that is the new Stoneman Taurista.
Motorbike adventures on the legendary B99 from Bischofshofen via Obertauern to Spittal at the Drau. Experience pure freedom during a ride via Nockalmstraße, the Großglockner high alpine road, and the Sölk pass – to name but a few highlights in the surrounding area.
Horseback riding & Carriage rides in Tweng
A treatise on horse-riding might begin with the most well-worn of all quotes: ‘The greatest happiness on this earth is horseback ridingk.’ An old saying, perhaps heard and cited too often, but it is true. Give it a go. It works. Your happiness level increases the instant you sit on a horse, or are in a carriage being drawn by a horse – with or without that well-worn saying in your mind. A few tips to kick-start your bliss and happiness – one option might be to ride through the dreamy (in the truest sense of the word) conservation area of Lantschfeld in Tweng.

The giant ice cave is a cave labyrinth of more than 40 kilometres of total walk. It was created over a very long period of time. The first crevices and fissures in the limestone rock were formed in the course of the mountain lifts about 100 million years ago.
80 km from Obertauern is the salt mine in Hallein – an exciting journey of discovery for the whole family!
