Summer vacation in the Pinzgau

Between the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Berchtesgaden Alps

The Gartenhotel Theresia lies in the heart of Salzburg Land, a region famous for its stunning landscapes and many outdoor activities. From  hiking paths for all fitness levels to running trails, mountain bike routes and glistening lakes, there is so much to see, do and explore here in summer. Our hotel enjoys a central yet peaceful location, just outside the centre of the village and only a few metres from the network of walking and biking trails. Stroll along the banks of the Saalach river into the centre of Hinterglemm or make the most of the free hiking bus shuttle service, which stops right outside our hotel.

Summer activity programme

Visits to local organic producers & traditional craftsmen and craftswomen in the region

At the Gartenhotel Theresia, we have a diverse programme of activities for guests in summer. Once a week Frau Brettermeier invites guests to join her on a walk to one of the many organic producers in the region – from the smallest organic dairy farm in Austria, located in nearby Leogang, to the organic beekeepers at the end of the valley. Further weekly highlights include visits to the National Park garden and walks to the hermitage "am Palfen" in Saalfelden and then on to the shop run by local farmers selling organic regional produce. 


Delicious delicacies on offer in the shop include dried bacon, ham, sausages, cheese, yoghurt, homemade schnapps and bread. It also has a selection of handmade items such as cardigans, pullovers, socks and felt slippers.
