Sun Terrace summer holidays in SalzburgerLand
A little closer to heaven
With perhaps the most hours of sunshine per day in the entire region and excellent weather, the Salzburg sun terrace lives up to its name. The high plateau in the Salzach valley provides heavenly relaxation in a genuine healing climate. Active variety and lots of fun for young and old are just as important. Your summer holiday in the Salzburger Land leads you on real panorama paths, into the cool water and to the most beautiful natural destinations of the region. This is only available on the Salzburg sun terrace!
Hiking in Pongau
The Salzburg sun terrace stands for a high density of natural beauties that can be wonderfully discovered, explored and conquered on foot. During enjoyable hikes you leave the stressful everyday life far behind you, find your inner balance and get in tune with your environment in no time at all. A large variety of tours inspires everyone, whether you are a leisurely walker, an ambitious alpine hiker or a sporty mountain enthusiast. Our guided hikes offer you a slightly different view of the magnificent, colourful nature of the region.
Bike and mountain bike tours
Where hiking trails open up, cycle paths are usually not far away, and this of course also applies to your summer holiday in the Salzburger Land. Several panoramic rides over mostly flat terrain as well as challenging alpine and mountain tours with a touch of off-road character have always fascinated our guests on two wheels. With the mountain bike in the Pongau it goes on forest roads and forest ways, over rough terrain and high up to the summit storm. Less experienced cyclists borrow an e-bike and get support from an electric motor on more demanding sections. Several bike rentals and charging stations on the Salzburg sun terrace leave nothing to be desired.
Golf holidays in the Salzburger Land
Simply push a quiet ball and let yourself be captivated by the magical sun terrace landscape: Golfers will also get their money’s worth. The 18-hole course in Goldegg in the middle of the sunny high plateau combines magnificent views with an exciting, challenging course. Improve your handicap, practice the perfect tee shot and face tricky obstacles. Thanks to its central location in the Salzburger Land region, you will find many other top-class facilities in the immediate vicinity. We recommend the Golf Alpin Card with green fees for over 40 courses to passionate golfers.
Swimming and water sports
Can it be a little cooling? Not only on hot days our outdoor swimming pools and bathing lakes in the Pongau enjoy great popularity. Swimming, diving and romping around or simply lying in the sun, letting fleecy clouds pass by and enjoying life: From the adventure pool to the health-promoting moor lake, everything is on offer on the Salzburg sun terrace. Maybe you’d like a little more action. White-water rafting on the Salzach river takes the team through spectacular rapids. The rugged, breathtakingly beautiful gorges of the region also invite you to adrenaline-charged canyoning adventures.
Other summer activities
Active exercise in the Alps – your summer holiday in the Salzburger Land can do even more! A variety of exciting summer activities will accompany you through your holidays. For example, the Salzach is ideal for ambitious fishermen and anglers who like to discover the variety of fish for themselves. The towering rock giants invite you to climb, while Lamatrekking offers a different kind of hiking pleasure. Tennis and beach volleyball round off the range of activities.
Excursions and alpine huts
The central location of the sun terrace in the Salzburger Land naturally invites to many an excursion to the surrounding area. Discover the various museums in and around St. Veit im Pongau with fascinating insights into the illustrious history of the region. Imposing castles take you back to the Middle Ages, while the thermal baths in the Gastein Valley provide valuable relaxation – a great alternative in bad weather, by the way. Fascinating natural spectacles, such as gorges and waterfalls, but also the almost obligatory excursion to the provincial capital of Salzburg should not be missing in the holiday programme. We also recommend a detour to the numerous alpine huts on Salzburg’s sunny terrace – perfect for a small stop on your hike or bike tour, including hearty Brettljausn of course.
Events on the Salzburg Sun Terrace
There is always something going on on and around the Salzburg sun terrace. Numerous events combine culture with sport, bring tradition and customs to life, and ensure the best entertainment for children. You can find a complete overview of all the events that await you in the Salzburger Land during your summer holiday here. One of our favourites is the Schwarzacher Schachopen, one of the most important chess tournaments in Austria. Professionals and amateurs meet in the heart of the sun terrace for a special open for real strategists and those who want to become one. At the health days in St. Veit im Pongau everything revolves around health-promoting measures. Attend fascinating lectures, seminars and workshops or take part in the accompanying activity programme – also for children!
