Summer holidays in Salzburger Land 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 Salzburger Land 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 arrive 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 also applies, of course, to your summer holiday in Salzburger Land. 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 Salzburger Land
Just push a quiet ball and let yourself be captivated by the almost 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, quite challenging course. File on your handicap, practice the perfect tee and face tricky obstacles. Due to its central location in Salzburger Land, 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? Our outdoor pools and swimming lakes in Pongau are not only very popular on hot days. Swimming, diving and romping around or just lying on the lake in the sun, letting sheep clouds pass by and enjoying life: From the adventure bath to the health-promoting Moorsee, everything is on the Salzburg sun terrace. Maybe you’re looking for a little more action. During the white water rafting on the Salzach, the team goes through spectacular rapids. 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 Salzburger Land 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. The towering rock giants invite you to climb, while Lamatrekking provides hiking pleasure of a slightly different kind. Tennis and beach volleyball skilfully complete the active offer.

The central location of the sun terrace in salzburger Land invites you to a lot of excursions in the surrounding area. Enjoy a hearty breakfast at your hotel, guesthouse or farm, and embark on a great journey of discovery.

Impressive castles take you back to the Middle Ages, while the thermal baths in the Gastein Valley provide valuable relaxation – by the way, a great alternative in bad weather. Fascinating natural spectacles, such as gorges and waterfalls, as well as the almost obligatory excursion to the state capital Salzburg are not to be missed in the holiday program.
