With his magical hat, the clown Montelino ensures happiness, joy and good weather. However, his hat was stolen from him by the dark goblin Kodok and hidden in a secret place. The children have to show a good deal of courage to solve the ten puzzles, crack the code for the magic word and win back the goblin’s hat.
Along the adventure trail, the courageous goblin hunters are provided with numerous puzzles and games that are entered in the adventure pass, which is available at the Reiterkogelbahn valley station. Then the Reiterkogelbahn takes you up the mountain. Here the young hikers are whisked away into the magical fantasy world of the Kobold Kodok on a 1.8 km long circular hiking trail. Numerous play stations such as “The Dark Gorge”, “The Secret Message” or “The Sad Rocks” demand courage, brains and motor skills from the little adventurers, while they also learn the laws of physics in a playful way with Parabol communication and mirror puzzles.
At the end of the path, a board converts the character codes into a magic word that frees the magic cap if all stations have been successfully completed.
As a symbolic award for their heroic commitment, all successful treasure hunters receive a hat sticker that they stick on the adventure pass. In addition, all little adventurers take part in a great competition.
NOTE: The adventure trail can only be used with a stroller as far as the Rosswaldhütte. Visiting the fantasy world is free. The adventure pass, which the brave searchers get at the Reiterkogelbahn valley station, is included in the valid cable car ticket.
Captain Hook adventure pool
The Saalbach outdoor pool
With a water surface of 1,000 m², the Käpt’n Hook adventure pool offers water slides, massage jets, gargoyles and a wild water canal. The panorama restaurant on the ship deck is another attraction.
Due to the official requirements – based on the available space – a maximum of 350 people are currently allowed to stay in the Käpt’n Hook outdoor pool at the same time. A family living in the same household counts as one person. It can therefore unfortunately happen that guests have to be turned away at the entrance.
Proof of the personal corona status (vaccinated, recovered or tested) must be provided for access . More information under Safe together .
Thank you for your understanding.

Golden Gate & Tree Top Walk
In combination with the “Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps”, the highest treetop hiking trail in Europe at the end of the valley in Saalbach Hinterglemm represents a project that is unique in the world.
The 2 km long, natural circular route begins at the head of the valley – the car park and leads through alpine pastures, forests and meadows. The one kilometer treetop path starts with the 200 m long “Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps”.
In summer, the 2 km long way there and back can also be covered with the valley head train. In winter, the path can be covered on foot or by horse-drawn sleigh through a wonderful landscape.
Part of the Baumzipfelweg is the up to 42 m high Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps, which spans the valley head at the source of the Saalach. Along the side and under the bridge, the high rope park courses lead with a panoramic view of the breathtaking surrounding mountain scenery. With its 600 meters made of solid larch wood, the long treetop path forms up to 30 meters above the forest floor – with stairs, towers, bridges and platforms the promising center of the treetop path.
With great play stations on the topics of nature, knowledge and skill, the path in the middle of the treetops awaits young and old explorers. The Baumzipfelweg is part of the Kids Wander Challenge .

The highlight at the head of the valley: The WILDLIFE TRAIL
Attentive observers occasionally discover a shy deer, see a curious marmot by the wayside or catch a glimpse of an excited squirrel before it disappears again into the forest canopy.
But the Pinzgau grass mountains are also a habitat for a diverse fauna far away from the hiking trails. Together with Lilo and Ossi you can discover which animals are at home in the Glemmtal on the Wildlife Trail, how they live and look and learn funny details about the animal inhabitants.
Only the lucky ones can tell of an encounter with the masters in hide and seek such as foxes, chamois, golden eagles, deer & Co. But you will certainly come across a devout golden eagle, a playful chamois, an interested marmot, a cunning fox or a sublime stag while exploring this educational trail. Because the life-size wooden figures can even be stroked.
The majestic alpine ibex – the “King of the Alps” – is the absolute highlight and waits for a visit in full life size and corporeality at the end of the path in the large ibex – gate. With a lot of luck you can watch the animals in their natural habitat with a look through the large binoculars at the Ossmannalm.
At the beginning of the Wildlife Trails you will find the folder with the Wildlife Quiz. Grab this and a pen, solve the riddle and pick up the medal at the Ossmannalm. (On the day of rest at the tourist office in Saalbach).
The WILDLIFE Trail is open daily. Admission is free.
