Tips & highlights


Good to know: Energy efficiency

The lift companies are striving for a constant improvement in energy efficiency. Thanks to technical developments, energy consumption has been continuously reduced in recent years. The electricity purchased comes 100% from renewable energy sources. Heat recovery systems are used in the infrastructure and cable car sectors.

Slide from the mountain to the valley at Prince Mountain Natrun, become a child yourself at Toni's alpine playground along Europe's longest ball track hiking trail, soar high in the Swing Park Hochkönig or whizz down the summer toboggan run at the Biberg in Saalfelden - the Hochkönig region offers a lot of variety not only in winter. Take advantage of the included bike transport on selected summer lifts and explore the region by bike. On our flow trail routes in Dienten and Maria Alm you will also find adrenalin, action and lots of fun for every skill level.
