Pinzga Hatscha

For true adventurers, everything has been created in the Salzburg Saalachtal. Thus, the Pinzga Hatscha was created; a beautiful long-distance hike of about 390 km through the Pinzgau Mountains. The route is divided into 15 stages. This means that not only experienced hikers can tackle the route, but also beginners or families. And if the tour becomes too strenuous, you can always take the (hiking) bus.

A path through the forest includes a total of 28 different shooting stations!

Playing Tennis Amidst the Mountains

Another sporting challenge in the area is playing a round of tennis. The nearby Saalbach-Hinterglemm has its own tennis court. So, you can have a sporty match with your friends or family anytime.
