Mountain summer at 1000 meters

A vacation in the mountains is soul food for the soul. Sipping a Spritz in the sun or drinking your first coffee on a mountain peak in the morning. Both have their charm. – But you can do more than just hike here. Archery, tennis, mini golf and much more awaits you. Because you don’t have to commit yourself. With us, you’re in the middle of a mountain paradise: You can be in Zell am See in no time at all and either splash around in the lake or go stand-up paddling. You can also hike up the peaks around the lake and enjoy the fantastic view towards the Grossglockner. And if you don’t want to be on two legs but on two wheels, climb the peaks in the bike park in Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Everything is possible!

Don’t keep your feet still!

Did you know that Austria’s largest bike region is just a stone’s throw away? Over 80 kilometers of downhill trails are shred-ready, learn-to-ride parks await kids and beginners and (e-)mountain bikers won’t manage to ride all the tours even in two weeks. You bet!

For leisurely bike excursions, there is also the scenic promenade on Lake Zell and flat cycle paths through small villages around Maishofen. Here you can cruise along relaxed, level and easy on the calves and treat yourself to an ice cream along the way before diving into the refreshing lake. E-bikes can be rented directly at brandgut – € 45 per day.


Don’t keep your feet still!

When you put on your hiking boots after breakfast, you’re practically at the starting point of your tour. Because from the brandgut, you have plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding mountains. You will find a leisurely circular route here as well as challenging day tours to Saalbach, Leogang or the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See.

If you prefer to cover your vertical meters by cable car, you can reach one of over 10 lifts in just a few minutes by car, which will take you directly up to the most beautiful peaks in the region.
