Snow fun and adventure
Family Hotel in Saalbach Hinterglemm
A family holiday at the Hotel Barbarahof is a holiday with a guarantee of fun for snow lovers big and small. In the middle of the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is not only provided on the slopes for variety and adventure. The largest ski resort in Austria has much more to offer for your winter holiday with the family. From cozy to adventurous, there is the right active offer for every taste.
How about a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride, for example? Glide through the fairytale snowy landscape of Saalbach Hinterglemm. Wrapped in warm blankets, enjoy the fresh air in the Alps, which quickly colors your cheeks rosy. The pleasant sound of the rattling horse hooves has an immensely relaxing effect. You always have an eye on the enchanting snow-covered mountain peaks of the Kitzbühel Alps. That’s exactly how snow princesses and ice princes must feel!
Or do you want an action-packed winter day? You can experience it on a trip to the “Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps”. If you float far above the rushing Saalach and take a look down, your breath will certainly hold. Because the bridge is located 42 meters above the ground. This is at least as exciting as the path through the breeous heights of the treetops that leads you to the bridge.
