Green outings

To the mountain lakes

The most convenient and environmentally friendly way to explore the region’s fascinating mountain lakes is hopping on an e-bike and putting the pedal to the metal. All you need is an e-bike, and that’s available for a small fee at the hotel. Our well-maintained and exclusive Mondraker e-bikes take you wherever you need to go the green way.

Lakes pillersee & Wiesensee

This e-bike tour is perfect for unexperienced e-bikers. Follow the cycling path to Hochfilzen via a slight incline. From here, continue until you reach Lake Wiesensee after approximately one hour of riding. Lake Pillersee is located a little farther. Both lakes offer wonderful bathing and Kneipp opportunities, which you definitely want to take advantage of to refresh and re-energise yourself before you either make your way directly back or take a little detour via sections of the Buchensteinwandrunde tour. The tour can also be combined with a stop at the Grießner Almen mountain huts.

Lake Ritzensee

Another easy bike tour is a trip to Lake Ritzensee in Saalfelden. Take the cycling path through the flat valley for a smooth 45-minute ride to the lake. Alternatively, you can challenge yourself on the Gunzi-Trail in Leogang or take a detour to the Biberg mountain, providing stunning views of Saalfelden. With the Saalfelden Leogang Card, your free guest pass, you enjoy free entry to the Ritzensee natural swimming lake.

Lake wildsee

Ready for a bike and hike experience? Get on your e-bike and make your way to Fieberbrunn. Shortly after you’ve passed Hochfilzen, take the turn signposted Gasthof Eiserne Hand. Follow along the uphill forest road past the Lärchenfilzhochalm hut until you reach the Wildalm hut. Give your e-bike a break and continue on foot. A one-hour hike takes you to the picturesque Lake Wildsee. If you still have some energy left, you can venture even higher and climb to the summit. In 30 minutes, you can conquer the Wildseeloder mountain at 2,117 metres or the Henne mountain at 2,078 metres above sea level.

Asitz reservoir

The Asitz mountain towers to the south of the hotel, promising cool mountain refreshment on hot summer days. Get on your e-bike and pedal along the forest road through the Schwarzleotal valley to the Forsthofalm hut and continue to the Asitz middle station. A little above the station, you’ll find the mesmerising reservoir. Take a look around and be amazed by the views of the Steinberge mountains and don’t forget to treat your feet to a regenerating Kneipp session. If you are keen to experience some downhill action, we recommend you to drop into the Bikepark Leogang’s Hangman II trail, running from the lift station directly back to the hotel.

Lake Zeller See

This tour requires one and a half hours of easy pedalling through the valley from Leogang through Saalfelden to Zell am See. The destination of this short, but very rewarding tour is Lake Zeller See, the largest lake in the Pinzgau region. Refresh yourself in the cool, crystal clear waters of the lake and soak up the sun on the generous lawns surrounding this gorgeous mountain jewel.

Lake Prinzensee, natrun

The first section along the cycling path from Leogang to Saalfelden is a perfect warm-up for this tour. At the foot of the Steinernes Meer mountain, you can choose between the more demanding Ramseiden-Runde tour with 650 metres of elevation gain or the easier route to Maria Alm. Continue onto the paved road and then onto the gravel path to the Natrunbahn mountain station. From here, it’s a few minutes of walking to the picturesque Lake Prinzensee, a perfect place to rest and take in the spellbinding vistas. The descent takes you along the two-kilometre Flow-One-Trail, which promises flowy downhill fun over a 285 metres of elevation drop.
