Around the municipalities of the Hochkönig Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach region you will find a well-maintained and super signposted network of hiking trails. Many of these hikes are designed as circular routes. We are enthusiastic mountain athletes ourselves and Heidi will be happy to provide you with valuable tour tips for your summer vacation on the Hochkönig.
The Hochkönig with its 2,943 meters and the Steinerne Meer are among the most powerful mountain ranges in the Alps.
If hiking with others is even more fun for you, the best thing to do is to explore our fantastic Hochkönig region on the guided hikes with the local hiking guide. He knows the most beautiful places and the most cozy alpine pastures and provides you with real insider tips!
With the Hochkönig Card (as a guest of our house, this is free!) All public transport throughout Pinzgau is free. It's best to leave your car in our carport during summer vacation!
Our six summer lifts in the towns of Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach take you to the respective peaks - free of charge with the Hochkönig Card. Mountain bikes and e-bikes are also transported, so you can start your round directly from there. But also the non-hikers enjoy the breathtaking panorama up to the summit of the Hohe Tauern.
Our Feriennest Leitner is located approx. 100 m from the foot of the Natrun adventure mountain, which is the Maria Almer local mountain. This has been expanded into a great adventure mountain in recent years. You either take the Natrunbahn (bikes are also transported) to the 1104 m high summit, the sporty ones cycle by mountain bike or go up on foot.
Once at the top you swing in the forest rope garden between the treetops. There are several courses in different levels of difficulty, so everyone gets their money's worth. Highlights are the Speed Flying Fox and the free fall from a height of 14 m! The Schlawutzel Parcours is specially designed for children between 2 and 8 years old and can be used free of charge.
The mountain bike trail “Flow One” promises total fun and action! The route winds from the top station of the Natrunbahn in the middle of the forest at 285 meters above the Postalm and further on meadows to the valley station. The trail is also suitable for beginners and families!
After a walking time of 1 hour, a great game reserve with deer and roe deer awaits you on the Jufenalm, mouflon, rabbits and goats can also be found. For your summer vacation as well as your winter vacation, the archery course on the Jufen offers lots of fun for young and old. It consists of 28 3-D animals in summer and 14 3-D animals in winter. The path through the forest is well marked. For those who do not want to run through the forest, there are also some discs and 3-D animals right at the Jufenalm. You can borrow bows and accessories from the inn.
A very special highlight is the forest slide park on the Natrun. On five stainless steel slides you whiz in a monkey tooth from the top station of dorfj @ t through the middle of the forest to the Postalm. The slides are free to use. If parents don't dare, the slides can also be avoided.
There is a lot of fun for the whole family at the valley station of the Natrunbahn: parents can match their children on the 18-hole mini golf course. Every track has its pitfalls, so it remains exciting until the end.
The Natrunbahn is just as accessible for wheelchairs and strollers as the numerous hiking trails around the Natrun.
It makes no difference whether you are cycling the mountains in the Hochkönig region with muscle power or with the eMountain bike with some support. Everyone will enjoy their personal summit victory and enjoy the magnificent panorama! If a summit is not enough, you can explore the entire region on the royal tour in 4 days - luggage transport included. The ii tour offers a very similar experience to the eMountain biker, who will definitely always find an e-filling station on the tour, so that he and his bike never run out of juice. If you prefer to leave your own bike at home, you are in good hands at one of the numerous bike rental stations. In addition, selected summer railways offer bike transport and special bike trails ensure variety on the descent and the associated flow. And if the break with your own bike guide on the mountain pasture in the neighboring town has taken too long, the bike taxi will bring you back safely to your accommodation with one of the bike specialists in the region.
