Summer in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve

The region scores with numerous options for individual outing experiences such as the Hundalm Ice and Stalactite Cave and the Adlerhorst tower, a viewing platform with wonderful carvings on the Buchacker Mountain, as well as two of the country’s most popular places of pilgrimage. In combination with highly attractive leisure facilities such as the Wörgl Water Worlds with their unique double looping slide or the leisure park Salvenaland - the Holiday Region Hohe Salve offers everything needed for eventful holidays.

Hohe Salve – Tyrol‘s most scenic panoramic mountain
The 360° panoramic view from the summit of the Hohe Salve in 1.829 meters is truly breath-taking. From Hopfgarten, the Salvenbahn gondola lifts take you comfortably to the peak from where you can choose among many well sign-posted panorama trails in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. The absolute highlight on the summit, however, is the Salvenkirchlein, also called St. John’s Chapel, the highest pilgrims’ church in Austria.
The view from the revolving panoramic terrace at the nearby summit restaurant and a walk along the “Sonnenweg” trail are the “icing” of a perfect day on the so-called “Rigi” of Tyrol.
We recommend: a morning hike including breakfast at one of the countless, rustic huts or, less tiring, up to the summit to a set breakfast table with the first gondola in the morning.
Be it breakfast or a snack at a traditional hut on the mountain, dinner at a Tyrolean inn or an exquisite, toque-rated cuisine – eating in the mountains stands for a culinary adventure in a stunning ambience.

Mariastein Pilgrims‘ Church
15 km north-west from the Hohe Salve, almost hidden at 575 m above sea-level, there is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the country, Mariastein, the smallest village in the county. Situated impressively on a 14 metre high steep rocky outcrop there’s the pilgrimage church, a 42 metre-high tower which built around 1360, has been a well-known site of pilgrimage since the late Middle Ages. 150 steps lead up to the pilgrims’ church, the so-called “Gnadenkapelle”, which, though situated at the very top in the tower, is undoubtedly worth seeing. Visitors are rewarded with the sight of the famous Gothic Madonna, the castle museum with a wonderful display of the Tyrolean Land insignia, with the archduke’s hat and sceptre, given by Archduke Maximilian, Master of the Teutonic Order (around 1600)

Hiking along the Adlerweg Trail to the Hundsalm Ice and Stalactite Cave
The Adlerweg Trail, sometimes also called the Eagle Walk, is the number one long-distance hiking trail in Tyrol and leads right through the country. Uniform signs and distinctive trail markers showing the most important details lead the hiker right into nature. The main route alone, of which the shape is reminiscent of an eagle’s wings, proceeds in 31 stages and covers a total vertical rise of 23.000 metres.

Two stages of the main route lead through the Holiday Region Hohe Salve and pass Buchacker Mountain. From there Tyrol’s only Ice and Stalactite Cave is only a stone’s throw away and a visit should not be missed out. Impressive ice formations of heights up to 7 metres even during the summer alternate with mysterious stalactite formations – an unusual combination and extremely rare. Situated at an altitude of 1.520 metres the cave provides a temperature of 0°Celsius throughout the year.
Once having climbed down the 122 stairs to the cave, a fascinating world of ice awaits you. In thousands and thousands of years, nature has created countless rooms, of which the largest measures 16 metres in height while the deepest point of the cave lies 45 metres below the surface.
Guided tours: from the middle of May to the end of September on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., daily in July and August.

Wilder Kaiser–Brixental Mountain Adventure Parks
The SkiWelt has a lot to offer even during the summer:

Great fun for children, relaxation for parents, an Eldorado for hikers and bikers – for holidaymakers, the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental leaves nothing to be desired. The already extensive range of summer offers has once more been expanded. With a total of six mountain adventure realms, one more innovative than the other and each comfortably to reach by cable car and easily to manage with a pram, this year’s summer offer starts more attractive than ever into the new season. Young and old alike appreciate the active interaction at the eventful stations of the various theme parks, the shimmering lakes and the rustic mountain huts – the spirit of discovery and adventure will take hold of all generations.

For cyclists in particular!
800 km of perfectly signposted cycle trails promise sheer riding pleasures in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. Thanks to this and the great infrastructure provided, mountainbike holidays awarded the Kitzbüheler Alpen as the first region in Austria with the „approved bike area“ seal of quality – see for yourself and discover the most scenic routes in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve. By the way, since 2013, the Holiday Region Hohe Salve may call itself the first e-race bike region in the world.
