Fitness surrounded by pure nature

Hiking boosts your physical and mental health like virtually no other recreational sport. Both the young and old benefit from activity in the fresh mountain air. Almost the whole body is worked out simultaneously and ideally with mountain hiking. The ascent boosts heart, lung and muscle activity, the descent works out the joints, posture and spine. You could scarcely find a better way to get fit and healthy.

Nowhere is there a more beautiful and fascination "gym" than the mountains whose dense network of hiking trails is also conveniently and safely accessible for anyone using the cable cars. The mountains around Saalbach-Hinterglemm also have an ideal and healthy altitude.

Guided hikes

One special extra are our free guided hikes. You can find out where the meeting place is from our current weekly programme, from your hosts at Hotel DAS ZWÖLFERHAUS or from the information channel.
