Summer holidays in Salzburg Country on the Sun Terrace

A little closer to the sky

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 valley of the Salzach provides heavenly relaxation in a real healing climate. But there should be no lack of active variety and good fun for young and old. Your summer holiday in Salzburg Country will take you on real panoramic paths, the cool water and the most beautiful natural destinations in 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, which can be wonderfully discovered, explored and conquered on Schuster’s Rappen. With enjoyable hikes, you leave the stressful everyday life far behind, find inner balance and get in a hurry in harmony with your environment. A wide variety of tours inspires everyone, whether comfortable walkers, ambitious alpine hikers or sporty mountain fex. Our guided hikes offer a slightly different view of the magnificent, colourful nature of the region.


Cycling 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 Salzburg Country. Several panoramic rides over largely flat areas as well as challenging alpine and mountain tours with a touch of off-road character have always inspired our guests on two wheels. With the mountain bike in the Pongau you go on forest roads and forest paths, over rough terrain and up to the summit tower. Less experienced cyclists borrow an e-bike and get support from an electric motor on more demanding passages. Several bike rentals and charging stations on the Salzburg Sun Terrace leave no wish to be desired.

Golf holidays in Salzburg Country

Just push a quiet ball and let yourself be captivated by the almost magical Sun Terrace landscape: Golfers 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, quite challenging course. File on your handicap, practice the perfect tee and face tricky obstacles. Due to its central location in Salzburg Country, you will find many other high-class facilities in the immediate vicinity. We offer passionate golfers the Golf Alpin Card with green fees for more than 40 courses.


Swimming and water sports

Can it be a little cooling down? Not only on hot days, our outdoor pools and swimming lakes in Pongau are very popular. Swimming, diving and romping around or just lying in the sun, letting sheep clouds pass by and enjoying life: From adventure baths to health-promoting moor lake, everything is on the Salzburg Sun Terrace. Maybe you’re looking for a little more action. The team goes through spectacular rapids during whitewater rafting on the Salzach. The rugged, breathtakingly beautiful gorges of the region also invite you to adrenaline-charged canyoning adventures.

Other summer activities

Active movement in the Alps – your summer holiday in Salzburg Country can do even more! A variety of exciting summer activities will accompany you through the holidays. For example, the Salzach is ideally suited for ambitious fishermen and anglers who like to discover the variety of fish for themselves.
