The Hohe Salve

The exceptional adventure and panoramic mountain in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve

The virtually freestanding summit of the Hohe Salve is known for its fabulous 360° views. Already at the time of the Celts, the conical mountain was regarded as a power place and holy site. Today you’ll find the highest located pilgrimage church in Austria on the summit. The restaurant with its unique revolving terrace and revolving public room serves up culinary delectations at 1,829 metres. The name “Salve”, by the way, comes from Latin and means greeting. And that’s exactly how it is, the summit of the Hohe Salve salutes from afar to the four winds.

Many ways lead up to Hohe Salve
Hohe Salve is a true adventure mountain for all sports types. Many hiking trails of various difficulty levels lead up to the summit. Panoramic hikes, valley hikes, lake hikes and summit hikes - choose the tour that suits you best and experience breathtaking Alpine panoramas. With the help of the cable car a hike on the Hohe Salve can be adapted to your respective fitness level.

By cable car up to the panoramic mountain
With the Salvenbahn I and II you’ll get from Hopfgarten directly up to the summit of the Hohe Salve. You also have the option of getting off at the mid-station. From there, many hikes begin to the summit and to the Alpine pastures and lakes on the Hohe Salve. Near the mid-station you’ll also find snack stops and lodges to have a break at. Profit from the low-cost summer tickets and combo- tickets of the cable cars. With the Kitzbühel Alps Guest Card you’ll also get discounts on your ticket. A ride up to the Hohe Salve is also possible from Söll. There is thus nothing in the way of "crossing the mountain" by gondola lift.

Pure family adventure
All around the summit of the Hohe Salve there is plenty to discover. The Hohe Salve reservoir with its platform, the swinging loungers and water splashing options, as well as the myth-enshrouded Witches' Water with its many play stations in Söll. At the summit you can enjoy the wonderful view on a panoramic walk. The trail is pram-friendly and leads once around the summit. The giant head at the highest point of the Hohe Salve is perfect for climbing, sliding and playing in the sand.

Action in the air
The Hohe Salve is a true hotspot for paragliders. The good thermal conditions, the wonderful natural scenery and the favourable location of the cable cars attract many pilots to Hopfgarten. Tandem flights are also possible from the summit of the Hohe Salve. Experience a special adventure-kick and discover the Holiday Region Hohe Salve from a bird’s-eye perspective!
