Don't forget to visit the 900-year-old Hohensalzburg fortress. The symbol of the city. But also check the house where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. Other places well worth a visit are Schloss Mirabell and Hellbrunn. Everything in Salzburg breathes classical music, good food, and endless shopping and partying. A lovely city, and a true must-see.

SKIING IN ABTENAU AND THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS

Abtenau has a few ski runs with a total length of 10 kilometres. Perfect for children and beginners. If you have never been on skis before, take some ski classes from Ski School ‘dein SkiCoach’ in Abtenau. For beautiful, more challenging, ski runs, head for Dachstein West ski resort, at only a 15-minute drive from Algerhof.

You can rent your ski gear from Intersport Schwaighofer of from WM Sport 2000

lammerklamm

HIKING IN THE LAMMERKLAMM

This gorge was shaped in the ice age. Moving glaciers and churning bodies of water made it deeper and deeper. The Lammerklamm is 1 kilometre long, bridging a height difference of 43 metres. It is a good hike. The pathway is narrow, there are steps where necessary, and there is a safe railing all the way. It is not suitable for wheelchairs or prams. The most impressive part of the Lammerklamm is the Dunkle Klamm. Keep your eyes open, or you will miss it.

SWIMMING IN ERLEBNISBAD ABTENAU

The public swimming pool in Abtenau is fun for all ages. It has a sports pool, slides, a children's pool, as well as lovely lawns. Weather permitting, the swimming pool opens its doors at the beginning of May. To close them again in September.

Karkogel summer toboggan run

TOBOGGANING AT THE KARKOGELBAHN IN ABTENAU

This is something you should definitely do if you are here in the summer months. The sensational tobogganing track is nearly 2 kilometres long. Children under the age of 6 can slide down together with an older child or an adult. How fast do you dare to woosh down?

mountainbiken

MOUNTAIN BIKING

There are several cycling and mountain biking tracks in the Abtenau area. Both for the real die-hards and for those who just want to enjoy a nice bike ride in the wonderful environment.

Mountain or regular bikes can be rented from Höll-Trading in Abtenau.

In the immediate vicinity of Algerhof Country Home, you will find (white-water) rivers, lakes and waterfalls, such as Dachserfall and Gollinger Wasserfall. Challenging for the real sports enthusiasts, but also great fun for the family.

And while you're in the area, check out Röthbach Wasserfall, Germany's highest waterfall.

postalm

POSTALM

The largest alm area in Austria is Postalm. The drive across Panorama Trail (toll road) alone is spectacular. Here, you can enjoy a wonderful ski, hiking or cycling trip, or simply have lunch and enjoy the view. In the summer, you can hitch a ride on the post coach from Abtenau to the Postalm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Your TennengauPlusCard gives you free access.

Dachtstein-Glacier

DACHSTEIN GLACIER

In Ramsau am Dachstein, you can take the panorama gondola to the Dachstein glacier. Up on the glacier, you will find yourself in eternal snow, and you can set out on the Dachstein sky walk. Take the suspension bridge to the Ice Palace.

Hallstattersee

HALLSTÄTTERSEE

Lake Hallstatt is probably the most photographed lake in Austria. And not just the lake, but the combination with the typical mountain town of Hallstatt. This town is a UNESCO heritage site. Visit Hallstatt once the day visitors are gone: either early or at dusk. The best pictures of the mist, the mountains, and the world-famous little church are made early in the morning, around sunrise.

mountain lake

GOSAUSEE

Much less known than Lake Hallstatt is the turquoise green lake at the foot of the Dachstein Mountains. The hike around the 'vorderer' Lake Gosau (4 km) is even doable with children and a pram. If you're up for a greater challenge, continue to the beautiful 'hinterer' Lake Gosau or take a multi-day hiking trip to the Dachstein Glacier, with an overnight stay at the Adamekhütte.
