Hikers feel particularly comfortable at the Hotel Barbarahof. This is not only due to the warm hospitality of the host family Steger and the hotel team. Your holiday home is located between Saalbach and Hinterglemm and is therefore the ideal starting point for unforgettable days during your summer holiday in the hiking paradise.
In addition, there is the personal care by senior manager Rudi. The trained hiking guide will be happy to help you plan your next route and always has helpful tips for you. After all, he knows the mountains of SalzburgerLand as well as the back of his hand. In the hotel’s summer weekly program, he even personally leads guests to his favorite box seats. During a joint hike with a stop at the alpine hut, you will also learn exciting and funny stories about life in Saalbach Hinterglemm.
Well equipped: Free hiking maps are available at the reception of the Wanderhotel Barbarahof Saalbach.

From there you walk over the Marxtenscharte, the Seetörl, the Klingelertörl, the Klammscharte and the Rohrertörl to the Schmittenhöhe. The Schmittenhöhebahn takes you back to the valley, to Zell am See. From there, take the Postbus back to Saalbach.
