With a ski area totalling in excess of 120km, a linked modern lift system connecting the villages of Mühlbach, Dienten, Hintertal and Maria Alm, one of the most established fun parks in Austria (the Blue Tomato Kings Park Hochkönig!) and slopes to serve everyone from the most experienced through to those making their first tentative turns, the Hochkönig Winterreich in Salzburgerland offers you a unique, family-friendly ski area with an enviable snow record.
Cycling or mountain biking in the Hochkönig region is the perfect adventure vacation on two wheels. Cycle along the nice roads with stunning views or climb one of the famous hills in the neighbourhood like the Großglockner or Kitzbüheler Horn. Mountain Bikers can enjoy more than 20 wonderful tours or take one of the Hochkönig gondolas and enjoy the local trails.
With 340km of hiking trails and numerous mountain restaurants in which to refuel, the Hochkönig is a hiking paradise. Each step leads you deeper into nature. Fresh mountain air, towering rocks, idyllic hill farms, lush meadows, and legendary views of the alpine world. There are a variety of difficulty levels, and many interesting trails with different themes. The hiking highlight is the 73 km long-distance hiking trail through the region – the “Königsweg”. Free guided hikes are also offered.
Less than a 2 minute walk or a little further afield from Haus Wasserbauer we have different Cafe/Bar Restaurants which serve up from traditional Austrian dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel to dishes from around the world including chicken curry, pizza, chinese and much more.
Looking to refuel after a day on the slopes or a summer hike? Across the Hochkönig we have over 35 huts and alms serving anything from traditional Austrian specialties, pizza, steak, fondue, salads and much more.
If you’re a night owl and want to cut some shapes, then the local disco is the place for you. Open until the early hours, you can dance the night away and it’s only a short walk home.
