Hiking is fashionable

The mountains around Flachau are just waiting to be climbed. The altitude here is ideal and there are plenty of marked routes for your hiking pleasure. Pull on your hiking boots, strap on your rucksack and head for the summit. After testing your athletic endurance you can enjoy the mountain panoramic to the full, breath in the fresh mountain air and tuck into some delicious snacks in a mountain hut. Relaxed hikers can delight in the unspoilt nature and the unique mountain landscape of the Pongau region on the mountain railways.


The Sportweltbus is another service offered in the region. You only pay EUR 1,- per ride (with guest card). The bus operates daily at 2-hourly intervals in the whole region (Salzburger Sportwelt & Obertauern, except St. Johann/Pg.), from the end of May until the beginning of October. For timetables and further information please ask at the reception.

Lifts in summer

With the Flachau guest card you can go free of charge with the lift (Starjet 1 und 2) on the Grießenkareck. At the top of the hill you will find a splendidly developed network of biking and hiking trails. You can get further information about the tours and business hours at the reception.
