The Wildkogel high-alpine hiking area is an adventure mountain and offers lots of fun and action for families, as well as peace and quiet for hikers & nature lovers.
What a wonderful feeling to stand up above things. To look at the world from a different perspective and when hiking or biking to be closer to the sky than to the earth. At least that's how it feels. Standing above things is not just a metaphor. Quite the contrary! A holiday in the Wildkogel Arena seems almost predestined to escape the ups & downs of everyday life. Here is the sunny side of life!
Already in the 19th century, the Wildkogel was mentioned in literature with its National Park towns of Neukirchen am Großvenediger and Bramberg am Wildkogel, due to its magnificent views of the Großvenediger Mountains. Impressive
views even back then, which have not changed up to today. In addition, attractive fun factors have been added to the Wildkogel Arena. For example, the slide path, on which you shoot rapidly down more than ten stainless steel slides into the valley, or the four-kilometre-long and winding mountain cart route. But also the cable cars, which as the "Best Austrian Summer Cable Cars", lead you up into this high-altitude hiking area with the numerous alpine huts at a good 2,000 meters, are among the amenities.
The practical National Park Summer Card for guests includes an ascent and descent as well as hiking buses, public transport and many other attractions. With the Guest Card from Neukirchen and Bramberg, the rental of child carriers or buggies is also free of charge. You can go hiking here in the high-altitude hiking area and in the National Park valleys either individually or in the company of a mountain guide or National Park Ranger. Taking a look at nature under "professional guidance" opens up a completely new world.
The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest nature reserve in Central Europe, and with its valleys, glaciers, streams and lakes is a real treasure. There is a lot to discover such as the only emerald deposit in Europe, which you find in the Habach Valley. Another hiking highlight is the new long-distance hiking trail, the "Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail". The combination of "Bike & Hike" is also ideal, for example on a tour to the newly designated Sulzbach Valley wilderness area. By bike you head up to the valley end in the Obersulzbachtal, onwards on foot to the Kürsingerhütte or even to the Großvenendiger, the highest mountain in Salzburg. The mountain bike trail network in the region covers 800 kilometres and E-bikes can be rented on site.
