Destination summary

Königsleiten is located on the border between Salzburg and Tyrol in the Zillertal Alps, near the high alpine ski resorts of Gerlos, Krimml and Hochkrimml. Far above Wald im Pinzgau, in whose municipal area the holiday village lies within, nothing distracts from the majesty of the mountain. Even in the middle of the village, at 1470 to 1600 metres above sea level, you’ll feel on top of the world as you take to the slopes. However, it goes much further up: the highest lift arrival is at 2302 metres above sea level.

The snow guarantee and the varied slopes make the area attractive for real winter fanatics. Königsleiten is the highlight of the Zillertal Arena. Thanks to its southern exposure directly on the Gerlos Pass, you can enjoy wonderful hours of sunshine during the day. In the different "Schirmbars" and ski huts, you can end an active ski day sociably. Come the evening hours, you’ll discover plenty of options when it comes to dining out, with all manner of appetites catered for. For more everyday errands, there’s a supermarket in the heart of town.

Because Königsleiten has been laid out on quite a steep terrain, there is a special service for winter guests. During the winter months, you can use the bus with a valid ski pass. This bus usually runs between 8:30 and 17:30 every quarter of an hour between the higher and lower sections.

Königsleiten offers even more than winter sports. On clear days the highest observatory in Europe is waiting for you to pay it a visit. During the various performances in the planetarium, you will learn everything about the stars, which you can then gaze upon with a fantastic new vantage point! And if you ever feel like moving without skis on your feet, you can explore the Planet Nature Trail around the village. The swimming bath in Wald im Pinzgau is ideal for relaxing and rejuvenating. Here, you’ll find a covered slide and a well-equipped sauna and wellness area that leave nothing to be desired.
