There are numerous hiking trails to happiness in Saalbach Hinterglemm. We’ve already told you which hikes are our favorites. And today we are going to spark your anticipation for your hiking vacation in Saalbach.


  • 1. the temperatures: Where the snow is meters high in winter and the alpine flowers are in full bloom in summer, the best conditions for hiking prevail in autumn. Not too hot and not too cold – just right. The pleasant temperatures make for an easier ascent than in midsummer. This way, even the little ones have more fun on the hike!
  • 2. the weather: In summer, you can often expect thunderstorms, especially in the mountains. Not so in the third season. Moderate temperatures keep storm fronts at bay and provide sun-filled hours in the mountains.
  • 3. the landscape: imposing peaks in front of you, colorful autumnal forests and the sky seemingly very close. You can only experience all this on the mountain. And for this reason alone, an autumnal hike in Saalbach Hinterglemm should definitely be on your vacation program.
  • 4. the mountain air: Is there anything better than a deep breath of fresh, clear mountain air? We can’t find it! Good that there is plenty of it in Saalbach Hinterglemm. You will see: You will “breathe” the difference as soon as you arrive on your hiking vacation.
  • 5. the autumn sun: it makes us happy and beautiful. Catching the last warm rays of sunshine before the cold winter? Nowhere is this easier than on a hike in the mountains of Saalbach Hinterglemm. Without fear of sunburn, enjoy the warm rays on your skin, which is wonderfully pre-tanned thanks to last summer. In addition, the movement of mountain walking stimulates the metabolism and thus ensures better blood circulation. So hiking really does make you beautiful!


Do you know the mountain: when a storm is approaching, it’s important to keep calm. Even if the weather is calmer in the fall, thunderstorms cannot be ruled out 100 percent. Then: leave the summit, stay away from trees and look for a shelter.

Protect the mountain: Even small animals make dung. Therefore, any type of waste that is taken up the mountain should also be brought back down to the valley and disposed of properly. In this way, you guarantee that the mountain will give many more hikers the same feeling of freedom that it has given you.

Say hello on the mountain: On the mountain you are on first-name terms. With oncoming hikers, with the Alpine innkeeper and with the dairymaid. And when you reach the summit, the first thing you have to say is “Heal the mountain!”
