Pinzgau hospitality offers plenty for touristsThe Großvenediger is the highest mountain of the federal state Salzburg and Neukirchen lies directly at its feet. Located at 856 metres above sea level in the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, the cosy, authentic Austrian village is an ideal starting point for skiing pleasure of all kinds, especially in the nearby Wildkogel Arena. In this snow-sure ski area, the range of sports on offer is very varied and family-friendly. The Wildkogel lift takes you directly to 2100 metres above sea level. 75 kilometres of slopes are right on your doorstep, and twice as much in the Zillertal Arena next door. Europe's longest illuminated toboggan run is fun for children and parents alike. You can spend the evening in one of our cosy holiday apartments or in the no less cosy town centre. You have more than 60 houses and apartments to choose from!
The excellent facilities for kids make this ski area ideal for families with (small) children.
You can not only ski but also enjoy cross-country skiing, tobogganing, winter hiking and much more!
This area is a bit smaller scale making it ideal for families, seniors and beginners.
