Hiking and biking in Salzburg’s surrounding regions

Especially in the summer months, the many hiking trails in the mountains of the Salzburger Land region have locals and holiday guests jumping for joy. The city alone offers four mountains to explore on foot: Kapuzinerberg, Mönchsberg, Untersberg and Gaisberg. No doubt – every avid hiker is bound to find the right tour!

Four-star Hotel Gabi is also the perfect starting point for hikes in the surrounding regions. We especially recommend the area around Filzmoos, which can be reached in about 50 minutes by car.

Where you can hike, you can usually also bike. How about a leisurely tour through the neighbouring Berchtesgadener Land region, for instance? Or a ride along Salzach river to Hallein? If you had to leave your beloved two-wheeled steed at home, you can borrow one for free at the hotel’s own bike rental. Alongside standard bikes, you can also choose from mountain bikes and e-bikes.
