climbing in Salzburg Land
Outdoor climber’s paradise Saalfelden and Leogang
The Saalfelden Leogang region is also a great destination for climbers. The steep faces of the Leoganger Steinberge Steinernes Meer mountains in Saalfelden offer plenty of opportunities for all levels of climbers. Explore family-friendly climbing crags and via ferratas, as well as challenging climbing routes.
Salzburger Hof Leogang is located practically at the foot of the Leoganger Steinberge mountains. The Hochzint, Fahnenköpfl and Kaffeeköpfl summits feature a total of 24 routes, ranging from grade 3 to 8. The Passauer Hütte mountain hut is at the heart of this fascinating region, where amateur alpinists and competitive climbers as well as all those aspiring to improve their climbing skills are welcome.
In the direct vicinity of our four-star-superior sports hotel
There are two via ferratas on the Leoganger Steinberge mountains: Leogang-Nord, rated B to C, and Leogang-Süd, rated D. They both start at the Passauer Hütte mountain hut, which requires a 2.5-hour ascent.
If you are about to embark on your first via ferrata adventure, we recommend visiting Weissbach bei Lofer: the Zahme Gams via ferrata (B/C) is perfect for gaining some experience, while the Weiße Gams via ferrata (D) is a little more difficult. The Wilde Gams (E/F) is known as one of the most difficult via ferratas in the Alps.
If you want to conquer the Persailhorn summit at 2,347 metres above sea level, you can opt for the Wildentalsteig via ferrata (B/C) or take the Südwandsteig via ferrata (B). Both options are suited for experienced climbers only.
A 20-minute car ride takes you to Fieberbrunn, where even more via ferrata adventures await. Marokka (C) and Henne (B) are two popular via ferratas that you may want to add to your bucket list.
St. Ulrich am Pillersee offers one of the best practice via ferratas in the entire region: the Adolari via ferrata is rated B to C and only 100 metres long. It’s a great option for beginners and families with kids looking to explore the fascination of via ferratas. And if you still crave a little more action, you can venture out onto the suspension bridge or try out the zip line.
If you prefer bouldering or would like to practise some basic climbing skills indoors, you don’t even have to leave the hotel. We have our own 50-square-metre bouldering area. It’s located in the hotel’s basement and offers a great option to train your skills or to stay active on bad-weather days.
