A Summer Paradise in the Glemm Valley

The Glemm Valley in Pinzgau's Grass Mountains at the edge of the "Hohe Tauern" National Park, a holiday region with breathtaking views.

The hiking, biking and running paradise!

Our Gartenhotel Theresia is situated next to hiking trails and bicycle paths. We are just a 5- to 8-minute walk from the centre of the village of Hinterglemm along the main walking trail. And the free public hiking shuttle stops in front of the hotel. Saalbach-Hinterglemm is located at an altitude of 1050 metres above sea level – in the fog-free zone. A great selection of hiking, cycling and mountain bike trails are just waiting to be conquered.

With a height of 2336 metres, the Gaisstein Mountain is the highest mountain in this valley and also central Europe’s highest grass-covered mountain. Traditional alpine chalets invite you to stop and stay awhile. The Glemm Valley has plenty of pram- and wheelchair-friendly hiking trails and numerous attractions for the whole family.

And: Guests of the Gartenhotel Theresia receive the Saalbach-Hinterglemm Joker Card for free.

Hiking excursions to organic producers

Once a week, our hotel owner, Marianne Brettermeier, takes guests on a hike to regional organic companies such as:

  • The end of this hiking excursion is always a regional, organic agricultural establishment – for example, Austria’s highest altitude and smallest organic dairy in Leogang, the organic honey farm at the end of the valley, or the hermitage "am Palfen" with a stop at the Saalach Valley’s farmer’s shop in the historic city centre.
  • The Saalach Valley’s farmer’s shop offers organic products right from the region’s farms, with treats such as speck, ham, sausage, cheese and yoghurt, original farm bread and homemade schnapps, as well as hand-knitted jackets, pullovers, socks and slippers.
