Many guests at Hotel Wolfgang come to Hinterglemm to enjoy the extraordinary Alpine atmosphere and take exciting hiking experiences back home with them. Anyone who likes the mountains is sure to find a suitable route in the Saalbach Hinterglemm Hiking Circus, whether it be a relaxed and leisurely walk, or a challenging mountain climb. Thanks to its excellent location, Hotel Wolfgang is a popular base for many walks.
400 km of signed hiking paths lead walkers and mountaineers through the idyllic Glemmtal mountains. Whether you take part in one of the numerous guided tours, or decide to go it alone, every day in the Alpine summer paradise is a real mountain experience.
Unforgettable adventures include demanding mountain tours like the 7 hour hike up the Geißstein mountain, or the 3 Peaks Tour, taking in the Hochkogel, the Hochsaalbachkogel, and the Medalkogel. Less difficult hiking routes include the Spielberg or the Gerstreit circuits, both offering superb alpine views.
Anyone wanting to take it a bit easier, or wanting to shorten some of the longer tours, can easily use one of the 4 lifts to go up. The Reiterkogelbahn, Kohlmaisgipfelbahn, Schattberg X-press and the Zwölferkogelbahn lifts are all in operation in the summer. At the top station of the Reiterkogelbahn lift is the Therapeutic herbs and Alpine flower walk. Keen gardeners and nature lovers really enjoy finding what they are interested in, and in such a relaxing way. There are over 200 local varieties of plants and their healing effects are described.
If you are one of those people looking for challenges in the mountains, Saalbach Hinterglemm is right for you too. The Seven Summits-Tour, rumoured to be 24 km long, is only for fit, experienced mountaineers.
