My perfect summer day
Active through the nature of Saalbach Hinterglemm
The perfect summer day begins in the cozy bed of your room in the Hotel Barbarahof. You open your eyes and are greeted by the dreamlike Alpine panorama in front of the window. The sight of the mountains increases the anticipation of a day in the nature of Saalbach Hinterglemm. If the sun is also shining, it’s your lucky day! You can’t wait to go out and breathe in the fresh mountain air.
The cool, wet grass tickles your feet. Fresh mountain air fills your lungs. You stretch towards the sun, just like the mountain peaks in front of you. Morning gymnastics and treading with senior manager Rudi is the perfect start to your summer day
Well strengthened start in the morning
Before you start, enjoy a hearty breakfast in all cosiness. At the rich buffet there are numerous delicacies, fresh juices and healthy delicacies. Homemade specialties such as fruity jams, fragrant spelt rye bread or stuffed buchteln you must have tried once! The cuisine at the Hotel Barbarahof is not for nothing a highlight for many of our guests. And after this first highlight of enjoyment of the day, it finally goes out into nature.
Welcome the day at the summit
It is best to start the day outdoors with a small hike from our weekly program. You will be accompanied by the trained hiking guide and senior manager Rudi. The summit of the Reiterkogel can be easily reached from the centre of Hinterglemm with the Reiterkogelbahn. With the JOKER CARD, which you received when you arrived at the Hotel Barbarahof, the trip is even free of charge. From the mountain station at 1,480 meters above sea level, start your circular hike on the medicinal herb path in the direction of the Wetterkreuz. Arrived on the Sonnalm, you have earned a break. There you can strengthen yourself with homemade specialties and enjoy the fabulous mountain panorama in the sun. The hike takes about two hours.
By bike to the adventure park in the valley shot
Use your equally active afternoon for a bike tour with Chef Roland, who is a trained bike guide. Rent a mountain bike at the reception and set off together with the other guests to the end of the valley of Hinterglemm. Once there, you will find yourself in an exciting world of experience. Walk through the treetop path and the “Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps” or visit the high ropes park. Then you cycle back to the Hotel Barbarahof. The journey time (there and back) is about 1.5 hours.
Relaxed afternoons at the Hotel Barbarahof
After the bike ride, it’s time to rest. This works particularly well in the garden of the Hotel Barbarahof with a cool drink. Take a seat on a deck chair next to the small Active pool, on the sun terrace or on the lounge furniture. And then enjoy the peace and quiet, which is only broken by the pleasant rippling of the small stream!
If you still have enough power after the day on the trails, you can venture onto the fitness course. There you can test your dexterity and balance or really power yourself up on the sling trainer or the power rope.
Meanwhile, children let off steam at the large playground – rocking, sliding, hopping, climbing or in the sandpit. Large children’s eyes are guaranteed when they meet the little rabbit and dwarf chickens in the petting zoo. It’s all about in the Bobbycar area for the little ones or on our bike pump track for the slightly bigger kids.
Rain? No problem!
In bad weather, the hotel’s own wellness oasis with sauna area is a perfect place to relax extensively. Especially if you have spent active hours during the day in Saalbach Hinterglemm, the feel-good massages are a wonderful reward. This is wellness for body and mind during your summer holiday!
