Both summer and autumn are dreamlike in the Wildkogel Arena. Here in the western area of the state of Salzburg, near to the border with Tirol, there is an extremely large offer of leisure activities.
If you love sport, then alongside hiking, climbing, cycling and mountain biking, you can also spend your day swimming, running, rafting, canyoning, riding, paragliding, doing archery, playing tennis and trying out many more activities in Neukirchen and the region.
You can gladly rent E-mountain bikes from us at the hotel. So you can start pedalling right from the hotel. Advanced mountain bikes can travel to the mid- or mountain stations on the Wildkogel Bahn - free of charge with the Nationalpark Sommercard - and from there travel along forest roads or single trails into the valley.
For culture lovers, we recommend visiting the traditional events and festivals. Or going to a concert, the theatre or a museum. The show mine and the wool shop are interesting for both old and young. At these locations and during and other possibilities, you will learn about the tradition and cultures of the friendly locals. You may also meet new friends along the way.
Perhaps this year you are planning 2 holidays to the Wildkogel Arena - come to us again during the “Harvest Festival” at the end of August, a great 5th season of the year!
And don't forget: If you sit in a rustic Alpine inn or a cosy guest house - make sure to try the regional delicacies and treats!
The wonderful natural swimming lakes at Neukirchen am Großvenediger have a lot to offer athletes and families: The swimming lake is bordered by a large lounging area with shaded trees. A flatter section of the natural swimming lake is separated off for younger children. There's also a raft in this area, upon which kids and teenagers love to spend their time.
In addition to this, the children's play area has a large climbing frame, a slide and a water play area. In the large sandbox, kids are guaranteed to make beautiful sandcastles. Older children enjoy themselves on the two beach volleyball courts near to the entrance. And if your get hungry or thirsty, there's an Imbiss snack stand on-site.
Those who like to keep it cool, can jump into one of the mountain lakes when on a hike - a unique and refreshing experience!
Neukirchen and the region have several alpine valleys that are famous for their beauty and naturalness. Here you will find the upper and lower Sulzbach valley, the Habach Valley with its Emeralds, as well as the Krimmler Achen valley behind the Krimml waterfalls. If you want to, you can even hike up to a glacier at the end of the valley. All valleys can be explored on foot or discovered on mountain bike. The alpine inns will spoil you with home-made delicacies.
There's something amazing about Neukirchen and the state of Salzburg: We have 5 instead of the usual 4 seasons of the year! From the end of August to the end of October the Harvest Festival takes place. During this time, you have the opportunity to get to know traditional, rural life during artisan demonstrations, hikes, cooking lessons, thanksgiving, the Alpine Cattle Drive (festival) and traditional events.
It's a time when you should definitely spend your holiday in Neukirchen - starting with the best at the Landhotel Rohregger.
One of the most important times in the year is autumn with Thanksgiving. During this time, festivals are held, culinary experiences are served and there are celebrations.
The Alpine Cattle Drive Festival - when cows and sheep from the alpine meadows come back to their homely barns - is always worth a visit. Around the time of this event there are celebrations and people sit together cosily. Get to know the friendly locals and enjoy your time.
