Summer in the valley of the alpine huts
Summer in Großarl in the valley of the alpine huts, is nature at its purest from sunrise to sunset.
40 cosy alpine huts await you in Großarl in the midst of untouched nature. Hike along well marked trails, flowering fields, through cool forests, along thundering waterfalls, crystal clear mountain lakes, right up the mountain peaks with endless views. A hiking bus takes you directly to or from the hiking trail. In spring to where the mountain roses blossom, in summer to were berries and mushrooms grow, right into late autumn were some mountain peaks are already covered in a white veil.
Those particularly sporty can rent a mountain bike in Hotel Kathrin free of charge, and bike over 11.000 meters in altitude difference, on various levels of difficulty.
On the interactive hiking card you can plan your hiking tours even before you arrive. For those that don’t want to climb all that high, there’s the chapel trail which stretches out over 15 km on a flat surface.
Other activities that the beautiful Großarl in Salzburg has to offer:
Salzburg alp trail, trekking, Nordic walking, mountain climbing, beach volleyball, tennis, mini golf, heated outdoor swimming pool and cable cars.
As of June 2010 the new recreational centre „small valley in the alps“ has opened its doors. Loved by children, here they can have fun, action, and it’s only a 2 minute walk away from Hotel Kathrin. That’s a holiday without boredom.
PS: We are very happy that the BAK in Basel has recommended the Großarl valley as an all-year-round holiday destination in the Alps. Those are the findings of a study conducted by the Swiss BAK from 21.01.2010.
There are also various events that take place in Großarl, from the solstice to the farmer’s autumn.
