Who would have thought?
You’ve been coming to Obertauern for years to ski. You think you know every peak. And then this!
The Zehnerkar, Gamsleiten, Hundskogel, Seekareck and all the others are covered in green mats and are no longer recognisable. Alpine farming is flourishing: Cows graze here and there, horses are also there and are allowed to enjoy the fragrant alpine summer.
Up the mountain
Hiking holiday in Salzburger Land
If you stay in your room for long, it’s your own fault! Where there is a lively hustle and bustle on the pistes in winter, there are the most wonderful hiking dreams in summer. On foot, you make your way to idyllic spots in the heart of the Radstädter Tauern in Salzburger Land. As you rest by a crystal-clear mountain lake, your gaze sweeps across the snow-capped peaks in the distance, the rich green of the meadows and the blue of the sky – and this feeling of peace and happiness comes over you … Yes, this is what it looks like, the summer holiday in Obertauern, at 1,752 metres above sea level.
Family summer on the mountain
How nice, children in particular will think to themselves on a hiking holiday in Obertauern, that it is usually not really far up to the peaks. The peaks of the Radstädter Tauern are within reach right from the start. After all, you start a little higher up. Your feet will carry you to alpine pastures and huts, which are already waiting for you with full-bodied dishes. Hike to a new destination every day. This is how summer should be, this is how a hiking holiday should be.
There comes joy
Bike as much as you can
Saddle fast surprises await friends of the two-wheeled sport. Because who would have thought that Obertauern has quietly and secretly developed into a mecca for mountain bikers? That there is “enough mountain” in Obertauern probably doesn’t need to be told to anyone. But the fact that no less than six pretty cool mountain bike tours, in different lengths, with different degrees of difficulty, have been created and are more than appreciated by sports enthusiasts, should perhaps be noted briefly.
High altitude air as a bonus on top
Trail running: what sounds like a new running trend is actually a simple, well-known thing. Running off the asphalt, into the great outdoors. Mountain and forest paths, hiking trails, meadows and gravel banks, with trail running any terrain is allowed that is fun and challenges the leg muscles. In the varied mountain nature and tranquillity around Obertauern, you will certainly not find it difficult to gain metres in altitude. And on top of that, to do something for your red blood cells. At this altitude, with running trails directly from the Hotel Steiner.
