SUMMER in Saalbach

the mountains are calling!

“Why seek far afield when the good is close by?” as the saying goes, and in this case right in front of your nose, because the Grand Pension makes for a perfect base for many summer activities. 

Saalbach is known for winter, but everyone agrees that summer is something very special here.

Bikers Paradise

More than 80 km of downhill-trails and over 400 km of mountainbike-routes make Saalbach a giant playground for mountain- and downhill-bikers! Be it mountain bike trails across alpine meadows, tricky single tracks, shaped freeride routes and downhill routes or the first attempts in the “Learn to Ride-Park”- Saalbach’s mountains offer fun for all levels! In combination with the nearby Bikepark Leogang, the largest bike Eldorado of the Alps is waiting for you!

The mountain calls, and the hiking options in Saalbach are as multifaceted as the mountain landscape in Glemm Valley. Whether you scale all 7 summits or make use of the JOKER Card or let the lift bring you up to the mountain in comfort to record the alpine panorama: pretty much everything is possible, and we are happy to share our insider tips!

alpine CUISINE

Pinzgau´s treats taste even better with a suitable mountain backdrop, according to old country lore. And if your holidays end without having tasted Kaiserschmarrn (sugared and shredded pancakes) at least once, you must have done something wrong. To avoid this, we provide you with tips for our favourite treats and lodges., Mia Knoll (37).jpg


Move the gym to the mountains and make the mountains your fitness paradise! 

In addition, our gym "Werkstatt Open Gym" is available around the clock! 

Lots of sporty summer specials can be found here!

missing the sea?

Absolutely no problem! Saalbach offers the opportunity to swim in one of the mountain lakes, soak up the sun and make your friends back home envious with photos from these fabulous locations.

Families & Kids

If the children are happy, everyone is happy. Be it on the high ropes course, solving riddles at Mount Kodok, on Montelino’s Adventure Trail, at the water playground or in the Learn to Ride Park: With so many options, all children big and small will fall into bed happy and exhausted every evening.
