Luxury holidays in Hinterglemm

The picturesque mountain region of Saalbach Hinterglemm is a two hour’s drive south of Salzburg. In winter, the hills are alive with the swish-swish of skiers; a three piste network connects Saalbach, Hinterglemm and Leogang, and the area is well known for all manner of winter sports. Visitors tend to favour the sunny north side of the valley, and lifts run into the centre of both Hinterglemm and Saalbach villages. The mountains and valleys turn a vibrant green when spring hits, and the area is criss crossed with hiking (and mountain biking) trails for a good ol’ Austrian wandern. Refuel with hoppy brews and savoury skillets in the area’s numerous mountain huts, or rejuvenate your mountain-worked limbs with a soothing thermal spa day.

When to go

The temperatures in July and August can reach a balmy 20°C. Spring and autumn are prime hiking season, and ski season usually runs from December through early April. I’s coldest from December to March, when daily lows have been known to dip to -2°C.
