  • The Hanging Bridge trail is about 2 hours roundtrip from the parking lot to the Bridge. One could easily do this with a Jog stroller, Kids on bikes, or walking kid-paced.  more »
  • Wonderful place. Great place for the wheels. But for those who are used to traveling by train. It is a kind of enclave of Bavaria in Austria. By car from Salzburg, only 1:00 in the scenic surroundings. Excellent hotels. We opted for the "Bavaria". Convenient, comfortable, nicely. The town itself is interesting, 2 Cathedral which is well worth a visit and see. Old wooden bridge. In just 30 minutes and you're at the Lake open qualifiers. This is a separate and bright tour page. Also near Oberzal'cberg-"Eagle's nest".

  • This Park is simply incredible. I went with a friend to practice trailrunning and has spectacular trails. To be at the top of the Alps is a gift. Maps and signage are very accurate. All the infrastructure is a dream. We were in the height of summer and out of the most popular trails or is it noticed. There was a great row in the gondola that Yes, but it is organized with time and should not be a problem. I would a thousand times.
