Summer in the Alps – Part 2
Hochkönig in Salzburgerland really lets you get back to nature with children’s herb hikes to the many herb hill farms in the region, mountain biking and e-biking trails galore, petting zoos and wildlife enclosures.
The children will also love all the adventures Hochkönig has to offer. Last summer, British family Ben, Michal and their kids had the holiday of a lifetime. Here are two of the many highlights of their trip:
Natrun Adventure Mountain
This is a fantastic day out for the whole family. Reached via the award-winning Natrunbahn lift, Natrun Adventure Mountain is an extensive area and most of the mountain is accessible with a stroller. Their first stop was the Adventure Playground, where the kids could explore and blow off steam and they loved sliding down the 5 stainless steel slides at the Forest Slide Park.
One of the region’s most popular activities is mountain biking. The 3.3km Flow One trail is suitable for beginners taking in diverse terrain through particularly picturesque landscapes. If you prefer to use an e-bike to conserve your energy, Hochkönig has loads of charging stations throughout the region and even has designated e-bike hotels!
Where to stay
The region has a wide range of family hotels and a good selection of vegan hotels certified by the
Austrian Vegan Society.
