ACTIVITIES AT THE PRIESTEREGG
In the picturesque Pinzgau region, you can fully immerse yourself in nature – no matter whether you are up on a mountain or down in the valley. There are plenty of things to discover and experience. In winter, you can enjoy the myriad of well-groomed ski slopes and cross-country tracks; in summer, beautiful mountain paths and sensational bike trails will add some spice to your holiday. This region is full of exciting offers for excursions and activities and will certainly make your stay at the PRIESTEREGG even more unforgettable. We are happy to share with you the best destinations and give you a few insider tips. After all, we want you to go beyond our Bergdorf and get to know the surroundings and its people.
The fascination starts at your Chalet
Leogang is the starting point for Austria’s largest connected ski area, the “Home of Lässig” of Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn. More than 270 kilometres of groomed slopes and 70 ski lifts will certainly make your skiing holiday a very special one! Within minutes, modern cable cars take you to beautiful ski runs at an altitude of 2,000 metres. Situated in a wide sunny valley surrounded by majestic mountains, Leogang offers pristine conditions for cross-country skiers and ski mountaineers. The extensive network of classic and skating cross-country tracks runs for about 80 kilometres through this spectacular landscape. Snowshoe hikes and tobogganing are also fun and are possible in the immediate vicinity of the Bergdorf Priesteregg.
Summer in the mountains
Six three-thousand-metre peaks and 400 kilometres of well-marked and groomed hiking trails make for a unique mountain experience in the summer. You can stop in one of the many cosy mountain huts for a rest and a hearty snack. The villages of Zell am See, Kaprun, Kitzbühel as well as Austria’s highest mountain, the Großglockner, are only 30-minutes’ drive from the Bergdorf. Salzburg, Kufstein, the Giant Ice World, the Krimml Waterfalls, the Königssee Lake, Bad Reichenhall and Bad Gastein can be reached by car in about one hour.
ALL YEAR ROUND ACTIVITIES
“There is no bad weather, only bad clothes!”, so the saying goes. No matter whether rain, snow or sunny weather – the Pinzgau region offers all year round activities that can be pursued in any weather. Drive to the heart of the mountains, watch the king of the birds glide across the skies or discover your star constellation in Europe’s highest planetarium. We will certainly not get bored here!
Have you ever dreamed of being able to admire the beauty of the mountains from a bird’s eye view? We make it possible! Take off with us and experience an overwhelming panoramic mountain flight in a helicopter. Of course you can also use the helicopter to fly to one of the nearest cities like Salzburg, Innsbruck or Munich. Or the “air taxi” takes you to a gourmet restaurant or another special place of your choice.
A sightseeing flight with our helicopter with VIP equipment is also the perfect surprise for birthdays – or to give yourself an unforgettable experience.
As the environment is very important to us, we compensate the entire CO₂ emissions of the flight with the payment of an environmental contribution to myclimate!
